Hi and thank you for visiting my kickstarter campaign! 

We are now 100% funded! Thank you!

I am a disabled HIV+ Artist living and working in San Francisco, originally I am from a farm in Central Illinois and spent some years in Chicago after receiving my MA in drawing and photography. 

Being an artist and making art is tough and not for the faint of heart. I have been inspired of late by the artist David Hockney and his use of an iPad to create drawings. Like Hockney I use the same brushes app as well as the procreate app for my work. 

This is where I need you: I have already completed over 30 drawings and counting. Now it is time to make them tangible and available for galleries and shows. Producing limited edition, signed and numbered, museum quality archival pigment prints is costly. 

The gallery prints will be on Rives BFK printmaking paper, paper size 16"x20", image size 14.5"x19.5", archival pigments meeting museum standards. Gallery pricing for my new works will be in the price range from $350 to $750 USD based on image and print number. Editions of each image is limited to 5 signed and numbered prints for sale plus 2 Artist's Proofs (A/P) for exhibition purposes.

Backers at the $25, $50, and $100 level may choose from the following images:

Bodega Head Arch, Bodega Bay, CA 2014

Backers at $250 may choose from my artist website which drawing they wish as a print subject to availability. Theses images are the gallery prints and will be on Rives BFK printmaking paper, paper size 16"x20", image size 14.5"x19.5", archival pigments meeting museum standards.

Risks and challenges

The only real roadblock for this project is funding. I have experience of working with a museum quality fine art printer and have my work in public, private and corporate collections.

For this project, the drawings are complete, and only require some time to prepare the images for production. My budget on printing and rewards delivery is based on my experience with my previous projects and printing estimates from the San Francisco Fine Art printer I use exclusively. Should any unforeseen delays happen (color correction, proofing on artwork...) I promise to keep backers up to date.

A book publication of all my recent drawings will be my next campaign.
