Our dinosaur art gallery:
will go online July 1st, 2013 thanks your generous support.
*If you have discovered this Kickstarter project too late to pledge for the rewards offered here, they will be available at our new web gallery. Please contact us via this site if you have any questions in the meantime.
This Kickstarter project was about creating an online gallery for artists that excel in bringing our prehistoric past to life, and most of the pledge rewards featured works by two incredibly unique talents:
Please visit www.williamstout.com to find out more about Bill, and see other images from his vast and varied career.
Check out www.chiodobros.com to see what Charlie, and his brothers, have been up to.
Both Bill and Charlie have worked as production designers and art directors in Hollywood, and that may help explain the dramatic sensibilities in their art.
We set our funding goal at a minimal level, to try and ensure success, because we wanted to make sure we able to deliver the rewards to those who pledged.
The hope is that we will surpass $1,000.00 and be able to invest in a more elaborate website, the development of more products, and maybe even some strategic promotion. We just purchased our gallery-specific web domain. Our top two rewards are are primarily designed to help fund a more fully developed website.
Since we are not going to mass produce items, or rent an actual store front, low overhead will enable us to keep the costs down even though we will be producing made-to-order art-prints, and using high quality papers and inks.
Going online also gives us the opportunity to offer some interactive experiences, and the ability to create one-of-a-kind originals for a web-wide audience.
If we have success with these art items, our next step will be to produce some 3 dimensional objects, requiring silicone master matrix molds that will enable us to produce a limited number of urethane plastic figures and busts.
We look forward to developing a direct relationship with dinosaur art lovers, and hope this is only the beginning.
All art-prints will be made to order at The Chiodo Bros Studio using ultra-high quality paper and inks.

Risks and challenges
This Kickstarter project was conceived to make sure risks are minimal at this point. The digital files for the art being offered here have already been scanned and prepped to make sure there are no surprises later. The funding goal and pledge levels were carefully determined to take into account the Kickstarter fees, costs of creating the rewards, artist participation, and shipping. We hope to surpass our minimum funding goal, and are offering the 2 highest pledge levels so we will be able to augment our website and delve into the more expensive and time consuming mold making process so we can add sculptures and other 3 dimensional objects to our online gallery.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
