Lost For Words
An Illustrated Animal Alphabet Exhibition by Andrew Frazer
Opening : August 8th, 5pm - 7pm at Hay Shed Hill (Harmans Mill Rd), Margaret River, Western Australia.
(Exhibition continues until early November 2015)
For a number of years I have desired to create an illustrated animal alphabet & with the news of my wife & I expecting our first child in November, I feel the timing is perfect. Around the same time this inspiration was cooking - I had been invited by Hay Shed Hill in Margaret River to exhibit within their gallery space for the months of August, September & October, & so it has all come together very nicely. Many thanks to Rachael & the staff for their ongoing support.
The funds raised from this campaign are to directly fund the framing of all 26 illustrated animals, gallery fees & any additional promotional opportunities such as the offered stickers in lead up to the opening on August 8th.
Thank you for your time & support.
Risks and challenges
When first sharing about my upcoming exhibition with friends, I had a number of people ask if I was going to release any additional prints? Rather than releasing individual prints of each animal, I thought ... why not have ALL the animals on one print? & so the decision was made - I would have each illustration professionally digitised & placed on an A2 layout just like the traditional alphabet poster that I grew up with.
As you are aware - there are 26 animals representing 26 letters & I will be offering a limited run of 26 prints.
The challenge is having all the animals completed in time for my opening, but as I have already blocked out a substantial amount of time over the coming month, Im confident I will have plenty of time. The only risk of delay is in the context of confirming the proofs from my gicleé printer, but as they are of a very high professional standard, I trust that the process will be a smooth one.
My exhibition opens on the 8th of August & I plan on having the purchased prints packaged & in the post by the 15th of August.
Thanks for your time & support.
