Hello and WELCOME to my Kickstarter Campaign Page! Below you will read a little about me, about you, and about the world in regards to my BLOCK PRINTING PROJECT.
Thank you for being here!
ME: My name is Alycia Lynn and I am an artist and illustrator. I am also a friend, nature-enjoyer, mama, educator and human. Art helps me connect to and appreciate this world and calm my very very active brain. I appreciate that you are here!
I have been exploring block printing for the past three years and have fortified my enjoyment and relationship with this media. I love the textural quality of carving as well as the texture of the final product. If you're new to this media: Linoleum block printing (as I use it) involves carving an image out of linoleum that is mounted on wood and then stamping it onto special paper.
YOU: I would LOVE to showcase you, your pet, your friend, kid, mom, anyone who you find important with this art! How it works: You send me a picture (preferably a few to choose from) of your special subject and I turn them into a lovely, uniquely drawn, hand-printed image for you to cherish forever. Please see the rewards to your right to see your options for receiving your own custom image! These make great gifts - Every body loves their pets! - and will be ready in time for the holidays!
THE WORLD: I love that block printing has a huge connection to history (It's been around since 220 AD!) and the connection around the world - it is super big in India and China, amongst others. Also, one of my life goals is to get my art all over this beautiful planet. Thus far I have sent my art to 30 out of 50 of the United States, as well as to 5 different countries. I am excited to see where this Kickstarter campaign will carry my art to next!
NEXT STEPS: If you're down for awesomeness, choose a reward option to the right and fund this project. You will notice that there are options to choose one of my pre-designed images, or to have me make your own CUSTOM fantasticness.
The 9 pre-designed image choices here:
If you choose the custom route; once you have completed your backing, email me (email@example.com) an image or images that you would like to bring into creation and I will get started on the drawing part. Once I know for sure I am fully funded I will buy my supplies and get started on the transferring and carving steps. TIP: Please send me an image of a subject where you can see all of the subject or subject's head: For example:
Once I have been funded I will start whipping out these puppies (or kitties, or humans) as fast as I can and I will get the finals sent to you asap, definitely before December 24th. Here is another example:
YOUR MONEY: Your mula goes to buying the supplies I need to finish this project and my labor and time costs to create wonderful goodness for you. I will need to buy linoleum, blocks, some more precise cutting tools, paper, and ink. If you all can fully fund this project I think it will help me get the garumph I need to keep doing more projects - SO stay tuned if you like my work because I have many fun ideas for future adventures.
If you have any questions, wonderings or comments - please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am happy to connect with you. Thank you for your time in viewing this campaign and I hope I can bring some beauty and happiness into your life.

Risks and challenges
There is a risk that my hands will get really good at massages... which is awesome because I will need massages after all this carving! I will have to find some massage exchange people. There is always the risk that I may make a mistake and have to start over on a piece - but alas I am pretty darn good at persevering and finishing projects.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
