Hi! I'm Sai and I'm a watercolor illustrator based in Sydney Australia. PIXELS is a printed collection of my 2017 inktober paintings. My challenge this year was to try out pixel art using watercolor.

As of 28th of October, I've completed 20 out of 31 paintings. I plan to keep going until I finish all 31 by end of the year, and ship the artbook by mid January of 2018. You can follow my journey or see what I've done so far on instagram or twitter.

  

 

 

 

 

To keep true to the original size of these mini paintings, the artbook will be 12x12cm, soft cover with 36 pages saddle stitched. (cover art TBA)  


The Limited Edition pin design is based on one of the paintings in the book. Depending on the amount of backers, I will be increasing the order in increments of 50, and any leftover pins will be sold with the artbook online and/or at upcoming events. 
• 4 cm wide, 3 cm high
• Gold polished metal
• Rubber pin back

You can also pledge to have one of the original PIXELS artwork. These are 9x9cm each. Please message me first to check if the one you want is still available! You can have a look on my instagram or twitter for what I've done so far.

Already sold:
• Oni ramen cart
• Koi pond
• Plague doctor
• Cat on the windowsill
• Monster ice cream cart

The kickstarter funds will cover book production, pin production, kickstarter fee and cost of packaging (such as envelopes, and pin backing card). Shipping fee is not included in the pledge levels and will be added during checkout. 

 

[REACHED] $1500 - everyone who pledged for a physical copy of the book and above will also get a pack of 4 mini prints. The prints will be from the pixel series. 

[REACHED] $1800 - I will add a sticker sheet on top of that. 

[REACHED] $2000 - I will release an open edition collar pin based on the cat pixel piece. Backers can add the whale onto their order with a discounted price.

If you want to add on, it's an additional AU$15 (Retail price will be AU$30 / US$22). Please adjust your pledge and then message me :)

If you've already backed for the art book and LE pin pack, you can also choose to switch the whale to the collar cat pin instead. Please send me a message if you want to do this!

• Rose Gold polished metal
• Rubber pin back

Risks and challenges

My main concern would be to ensure that everything will be finished on time and able to be shipped by January. To do that, I will keep working on my inktober pieces, and will start production of the pins once the initial goal is reached. Having said that, if unforeseen circumstances arise, I will keep my backers up to date with any news.
