MY PROJECT GOAL:
My goal is to inspire and lift people's daily life by displaying Artistic images and messages around the city on billboards. To accomplish this, my first step is to have my (top choice) art-image pixelation improved so it's capable of printing much larger, such as billboards, with more clarity.
The first and most powerful piece I've created is called "Enjoy The Moments" and it resembles the fact that some of the most simple still-moments we see everyday are lost without enhancing their beauty. So, it's inspirational message is a reminder to Enjoy The Moments. And, the visual is truly beautiful! I'd love for every home, every office, and every City to experience (in person, on canvas or on billboard) what this fine art image can do for their daily inspiration and their evening relaxation.
In order to accomplish this goal I need to have my image professionally pixelation improved in order to accommodate larger print qualities. Your backer reward will be the finer image, or the original, if preferred.
From there, I want to continue to contribute inspiration to society by promoting more of my work I've created in a series called "LIFT" - LIFT is a series of images I've created through my photography and my post-editing which are originated in efforts to Lift life through an inspiring message and visual experience to the viewer.
MY PROCESS: I have an inspiring guesture clear in my mind, I scout a location, snap a photo, and edit it to bring out an artistic flavor of abstract vibrancy that enhances my intentions. In some cases, I add paint for further enhancement, including flourescent paint for an ultraviolet experience under black-light. It's really cool! See the update with both images to compare with paint, and without paint.
People that have seen it in person: "I could stare at this all day" - Kim, a local Banker, Houston TX "Wow, I NEED one of these for my house" - Todd, G.I.S. Mapping Analyst, Austin TX"WOW!, I Love this image!" - Marilyn, professional paint Artist, Austin TXIt's vibrancy and mind-lightening effect engages the audience’s aesthetic sensibilities, demonstrating the rebirth of "Art" as a visually intriguing experience.
Based on the reactions received from viewers, and the highly emotional gratification they get, this image seems to have the power to soothe stresses in households, calm anxious patients in the waiting rooms of Doctors/Dentists offices, and maybe even reduce crime in big cities if it were placed on billboards as part of a subconscious effort! (Well, I hope to find out soon enough about the billboard idea! On a billboard, this image will light up a city!)
You'll find yourself (and your guests) staring at this piece for long periods of time. It's like a campfire, or a 100 mile view!.... you'll lose yourself in the gaze while it refreshes your thoughts and clears your mind. If you haven't experienced this yet, you must have it on Canvas for your own home or business.
The $750 is set for accomplishing phase1, and enough pledges here can allow me to pursue my bigger goal of continuing this process as more than a hobby. And, I have some valuable rewards offered! Experience this art image for yourself by ordering a large print today via your pledge here and capture a limited signed edition for Kickstarter backers only. A five foot Canvas is highly recommended for a life-size experience you can embrace everyday and share with your guests whether at home or at work.
Phase One: Initial Funds for this project will go towards final image-mastery and print-testing to ensure quality is ready for mass production and maximum enjoyment, including oversized prints. (approx $750+/-)
Phase Two: Additional funds beyond the $750 image-mastering/proof stage will go towards distribution costs associated with getting this piece out in front of as many eyes as possible, as soon as possible. This will include national Art submission/entry fees, billboard Art submissions, partnering with distribution channels, Art shows, trade shows, and Agency fees. (approx $2,500+/-)
Most Backers will receive a Limited Edition, Artist-signed print (See the Pledge Values for your choice of print and exclusiveness). Let's make the world a better place through the effects of Art.
