Cherie did this T-Shirt

It's a bit scary doing something new (insert scared emoji face here) I've not used Kickstarter before so apologies for any blunders. 

It’s become clear to me that the high street is changing and our shopping habits are very different. When I launched my first clothing range back in 2003, I would sell clothes at independants boutiques, Top Shop and through magazines. This time I want to supply on demand. This is a range of exclusive t-shirts - when they’re gone they’re gone - no waste ! Making designs to cherish - never be repeated. 

This is season 1...   

A range more personal than any fashion graphics I’ve done before …. not only because I’ve put my name to it but because the designs represent life lessons. 3 themes very close to my heart:

FESTIVAL T

Celebrating women with these freshly cut illustrated roses all the way from 'The Town of Flowers' here in the UK. I’ve been constantly amazed by females, their strength and support during tough times. 

Choose your Rose Style* ...

1) Strong Rose

2) Delicate Rose

*i'll be in touch to get your choice when the goal is reached

TAKE TIME TO SMELL THE ROSES

Enjoy life and take the time to appreciate what you have. A crisp 100% cotton white T with a slick monochrome illustrated reminder.

The Future is Rosy

Coming up Roses…good times are coming. Women are able to fulfill their potential. Empowerment and growth.

T-shirt in Sizes XS S M L & XL they are 100% Cotton and printed in the UK.

If the kickstarter is successful l will gather size requests at the end. I recommend going up a size.

 2 Days to go and the goal was reached so I've added this little gem to the rewards.

Red Rose Stretch Goal Added
Red Rose Stretch Goal Added

If you'd like to support my ventures but are looking for something other than a t-shirt I have an offering of 10 personalised Rose Cards. These are printed on beautiful hand finished paper and painted by myself. They come with a neon pink envelope.

From my world of bubblegum tones and irony I'm offering my best selling pin badges. These are the new improved versions with a double fastening so they never fall off.

 An introduction to Digital illustration Tutorials.

I am super excited to be offering 2 tutorials. Giving the chance to discuss your illustration style or drawings and how you might like to execute them on a computer. We can base the classes on topics that interest you and discuss techniques that you may be interested in but unsure how to do. See more about this in the Rewards. 

Risks and challenges

Having created t-shirts in the past I've found you can never judge which design will sell best and how much stock to hold. This is a pitfall of 'Fast Fashion'. To avoid this I am asking the Kickstarter community to give me an insight into which designs are the most popular so I can supply on demand, keeping the t-shirts super exclusive and minimising waste.

    Red Rose

    As the goal has been reached I've decided to add this design. A Red & White Basketball T with 3/4 length sleeves. It is adorned with a hand painted red rose - which fades beautifully. The black illustration is screenprinted and won't fade at all. I'll be intouch to select sizes once kickstarter ends. Don't forget all those who pledge will receive exclusive 'take time to smell the roses' postcard and stickers.

    Introduction to Digital Illustration

    For those who can reach my home town here in the UK (commonly known as the Town of Flowers) I'm offering an extra something special. Perhaps you're interested in illustration or simply want to know more about how convert hand drawings into a digital format ? I'm offering one on one tutorials. Either 3 x 1 hour sessions or one longer session depending on your location. I have limited time so there will only be two of these rewards available.
