Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my Kickstarter! I'm an artist and illustrator inspired by nature, fantasy and distant worlds. My art often features creatures and beings I've imbued with magical or mystical properties. You may be familiar with my previous Kickstarter for my sketchbook Daydreams & Wanderings.
Last year, I began working on a series of drawings I call The Alchemy of Graphite. They feature moths, owls and other elements of the natural world. For me, the drawings are a meditative exercise--connecting me to the medium (graphite) and the magic of nature. As the year came to a close I had an idea. What if I created an enamel pin inspired by these drawings? Twilight Moth was the result. I'm excited to be able to bring this project to life with the help of Kickstarter's Make 100 event!
These will be limited edition pins--only 100 will be produced.
- Hard cloisonne enamel
- 1.5" on the longest side
- 1.2mm thick with gold metal plating
- 8mm post with metal clutch backing
-- $5+ option - Twilight Moth Art Print --
Backers at this level will receive one 4 x 4 inch matte print of the Twilight Moth art I designed for the pins. The design is vector art I created using the program Inkscape. Believe it or not, this is my first ever piece of vector art. I taught myself how to use the program just for this enamel pin!
-- $10+ option - Twilight Moth Enamel Pin --
Backers at this level will receive one Twilight Moth enamel pin.
-- $100+ option - Great Tiger Moth Original Drawing --
One backer will receive the original graphite drawing with gold pigments that was the inspiration for the Twilight Moth pins. The drawing, on Stillman & Birn Zeta Series paper, measures approximately 4.5 x 4.5 inches. This reward also includes one Twilight Moth enamel pin and the 4x4 inch print of the design.
Enamel Pin + Art Print
Anyone who pledges for an enamel pin can add $5 to their pledge and I'll send you both a pin and the art print.
If all of the enamel pins sell, all 100 of them, or the campaign reaches $1000 I will have backing cards made for the pins. Here's a mock-up of what they will look like.
Everyone who pledges at the $5+ Art Print Reward and up will receive a Twilight Moth Sticker with their reward.
Risks and challenges
The final proof for the Twilight Moth pin has been approved by the manufacturer. I don't expect any problems. They are waiting on me to click the GO button!
This is small campaign, so I won't have to rely on any outside parties to pack and ship the pins. I expect everything will be smooth sailing. This is my second Kickstarter campaign. The first campaign was a success and I encountered zero issues.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
