About

Hello potential pledges! I'm raising funds to  digitize my body of works on paper. I make art daily. I'm super passionate and inspired, so as a result I've got a ton. 

I'm at a point in my art career where opportunities are presenting themselves and I need to have these works in high resolution so that printing them or making products can move forward. 

"Why do you need so much money?"

 Well, the company I've found that scans them uses a flatbed scanner specifically for art. I looked it up. It costs about 40K, so I guess I won't be getting one for myself...ha! 

I have about 40-60 pieces of art that need to be scanned. It costs $120 per piece of art!

Since I'm going through the effort I decided I should get them scanned at double their native size, that way I can go crazy and make a wallpaper mural if I want. Yep, I WANT!

"Calethia, you're a photographer. Why don't you just DIY?"

 Well, I've done a few to make some prints but, shooting them with my (ancient) digital camera doesn't yield the best results. I like things to be really well done, so I'd have to get a new camera and that's another Kickstarter, right? 

Also, it's time consuming and I have a day job. During my free time I'm making new work, freelancing and other gigs, so I'd rather just let professional art scanner people do it.

"That's cool, Calethia, but WHAT DO I GET?" 

You get ART of course! I'll be making an original piece of art and creating limited edition prints in two sizes for the two tiers $25 and $55. The art will be unique for kickstarter pledges ONLY.

For those of you high rollers that pledge $500 I will create an 18x24 original piece of art and you will get it! The art will be unique for kickstarter pledges ONLY.

Thank you for your support!

 If the project is not fully funded I will not be able to fulfill the pledges! If you are interested in buying affordable art from me, this is the best way to help move the process along! 

Risks and challenges

As we know things do not always move smoothly in life. The potential challenges could be that the scanning doesn't go as desired, or there are delays in the process. If there are any issues I will communicate that to you, as soon as possible. I will use my plan B if issues arise with the photo lab, which is to hire an art photographer to digitize my work. I've given myself five months to deliver the rewards, but the sooner this project is funded, the sooner I can deliver the prints!
