About this project
Some people say that a picture is worth a thousand words. I'm Bradd, and my pictures are worth 26 letters. Take a look at this drawing of a shark.
Did you notice the letters A, B, C, D, and E making the wave at the top. Here are the other letters' locations revealed.
For the past few years I've been exploring and refining what I refer to as my Alpha-Sketch technique. An Alpha-Sketch is a parody drawing that uses only the letters of the alphabet to create the image. Every line you see is a letter of the alphabet. Nothing is repeated or omitted. It's an interactive art style that always gets a conversation started.
I routinely travel the U.S. and sell my original art, prints and art books at conventions and craft fairs.
A question I'm often asked is "Do you sell t-shirts?" I don't, but with your help, this project could change that.
If this project is funded, the t-shirts will be professionally printed on 100% cotton shirts in adult sizes S - 5XL. You can choose 1 design or go crazy and get all 4.
Here are the four designs:
1. Frankenstein's Monster
4. South Carolina State Flag
The funding goal of $7150 was arrived at as follows. I'd like to print 576 shirts (144 of each design). This will cost roughly $3500. If we manage to have enough people back the project and each of the 576 shirts needed to be shipped individually, that brings postage to approximately $2835. $100 is dedicated to reward printing and materials for collages. Kickstarter and Amazon would receive approximately 10% of the funding request ($715).
$3500 (shirts) + $2835 (postage) + $715 (Kickstarter/Amazon) + $100 (rewards) = $7150
It's not about profit; I just want to make cool shirts for you to wear.
In addition to the t-shirts themselves, I'm offering other cool rewards like desktop wallpapers, an exclusive Kickstarter print, .pdfs of my Alpha-Sketch activity book, and custom art commissions where I'll draw any character of your choice - real or fictional - in a one-of-kind Alpha-Sketch.
If you'd like to help me make these t-shirts a reality, don't worry about providing me with your size or design choice just yet. That information will be gathered if the project reaches its funding goal. Thanks for checking out my T IS FOR T-SHIRTS project.
