Marco Mazzoni - Drawings & Sketches 2012/2017

€29,782

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your amazing support. We reached the € 25,000 stretch goal! Each copy of the book will be now provided of a beautiful book case with a drawing prepared by Marco screenprinted on top! There is still time to try and reach a second stretch goal, to make our product even fancier! At € 30,000 we will print for free a serie of 8 postcards with Marco's drawings that will be included in all the rewards, even those already subscribed. HELP US SHARING THE PROJECT!

 

 

Marco is an Italian artist worldwide known for his works using colored pencils on paper, which has been exhibited in galleries and museums in Europe and America.

By getting in touch with him we had the pleasure of seeing his work come alive, outside the PC screen; we were overwhelmed while flipping through his sketchbooks, and we both immediately had the same thought: we wanted to allow as many people as possible to have one in their hands and feel the same way as we did browsing it. We decided to use Kickstarter to give life to this project with the same attention to detail that has always characterized our work, with the desire to give Marco’s supporters the best product possible, putting no limits to the quality achievable.

 

Satellite Press

We are Fulvio and Andrea, and together we are Satellite Press.
In the last few years we produced fanzines, records, t-shirts and prints related to the Italian underground scene, trying to give artists we appreciate support in the realization and circulation of their work. With great attention to details, and taking care of every aspect of the work, we have always tried to produce high-quality products, driven more by passion than profit. Today, as Satellite Press, we try to bring the same approach to the art world releasing limited edition prints.

Marco Mazzoni

Born in 1982 in Tortona. He works and lives in Milan. Combining organic shapes and textures with chiaroscuro contrasts in light and shadow, Mazzoni’s colored pencil drawings portray isolated female faces with features framed by flora and fauna. Striking a delicate balance between portrait and still life, the artist often obscures the eyes of his subjects with the wings of birds and butterflies or the leaves and petals of floral studies. Mazzoni’s imagery references herbalist traditions and Sardinian folklore of mystical seductresses who enchant, curse and cure. His body of work is a tribute to the legacy of female healers throughout history. These women held an important role in medieval communities yet their ancient knowledge of the natural healing properties of medicinal plants was widely feared by the Church, viewed as witchcraft and cause for persecution.

THE BOOK

 "Marco Mazzoni - Drawing + Sketches 2012/2017" will be a beautiful hardcover book, 13x21 cm, packed with 56 drawings and sketches by Marco Mazzoni. We add a transparent cover sleeve, manually screenprinted with one of Marco's sketches, for an extra luxury layer; high quality paper, printed by one of Italy' finest typography.

All of the featured drawings have been selected by Marco himself, chosen from his personal sketchbooks he used during the last 5 years.

THE KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE T-SHIRT

In addition to this amazing book, Kickstarter backers will get an exclusive t-shirt screenprinted by Satellite Press on a 185gr, 100% cotton t-shirt.
Two choices: Blue print on natural white t-shirt and blue print on yellow t-shirt, we will collect colors preferences at the end of the campaign. This is limited to this Kickstarter campaign and it's not going to be reprinted, or sold anywhere else.

THE KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE PRINTS

 

We're going to produce 2 limited edition prints in exclusive for this campaign. Both are edition of 20, handprinted on high quality 100% cotton printmaking paper - cm 12x20, signed and numbered by Marco.

A PERSONALIZED MINI PORTRAIT BY MARCO MAZZONI

Marco's portraits are incredible, and you can have your own! He's going to sketch mini portraits of the backers of this reward, made with pen on sketchbook paper (7x13 cm), from the photo you'll send us.
Only 40 available, hurry up!

FOUR ORIGINAL DRAWINGS BY MARCO MAZZONI

These are unique items, four original and signed drawings by Marco Mazzoni - all of them are featured in the book and selected from his own sketchbooks.

 

 

Risks and challenges

While this is our first Kickstarter campaign, we've been around for years with different names and projects, producing and releasing various products for a good number of artists.

We are partnering with some of Italy's best suppliers, and taking care, manually and personally, of every aspect of the production we can so we will be able to limit and ideally set to zero any supplier delay.

We are motivated and prepared to run this campaign at our best, and we can't wait to have this book in our own hands - since we are great supporters of Marco's art ourselves.
