ART & HUE
Called Art & Hue because of the combination of Imagery and Colour and an ideal way to bring stylish and colourful art into the home (the fact it sounds like two boys names is a delightful coincidence!)
Images are given the Art & Hue halftone treatment before a block of colour is applied to the image. All art prints will be available in a choice of hues for backers to select the shade that best suits where they wish to display it. Got a room with touches of yellow in it? Choose a print with yellow to fit into your decor scheme or a blue for contrast - your choice.
There are many themes around which the ready-to-buy art prints will be based, with the video showing a small sampling: Motel signs, Vegas, New York, Egypt, Food, Royalty, London, Retro & Vintage images, Beauty, the office, cityscapes and landscapes, nature, flora & fauna…
There are many ideas percolating, some of which have been created already, many more to be done should the Kickstarter funding be successful, and backers are welcome to suggest themes for me to think about.
ART PRINT SIZES
Art prints will be in the standard sizes of A4, A3, and A2 as there are many frames widely available to fit them. All art prints are sent unframed and backers can find frames from many stores such as Ikea, John Lewis, Habitat, West Elm, and Dunelm.
I think the UK and USA measurements of A2 are different so, to clarify, where A2 size is mentioned, it's a UK A2, not USA A2, so size is 42 x 59cm(approximately 16 x 23 inches)
Halftone, an age-old technique that uses dots to make up the printed image, similar to newspapers, is difficult to demonstrate the true quality on-screen but looks great printed.
Art & Hue offers the opportunity to create affordable bespoke art, personalised with a photograph of your choice, and customised with your colour selection, and I'll be happy to suggest colour options based on the image for backers who select a partandhue.comersonalised pledge.
Almost anything can be given the Art & Hue treatment:
a photograph of a person as an ideal gift;
a wedding photo for the perfect memento;
an image of the front of a house as a great housewarming present;
a beloved pet or car;
the options are endless (within reason! nothing too naughty please).
for your consideration! All backers will have the option to be name-checked on the roll call page that will be created at the website if funding is successful. Backers who pledge £10 or more will also have the option to link their roll call name to a website address of their choice (within reason! I do reserve the right to not link to sites with inappropriate content or malicious code).
Risks and challenges
I think the main challenge may be the amount of backers! Either there won't be enough to fund the project or if there are a lot of backers, it may take longer to print all artworks to meet the September & October fulfilment dates. If this is the case, backers will be updated to make sure they know when the expected delivery date will be.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
