Our physical mailboxes are often filled with neither art nor mystery, as the envelopes within commonly contain bills or advertisements. Perhaps the occasional Significant Day card appears, such as for a birthday, end-of-year holiday, or dental appointment. 

By pledging to this Kickstarter, you can add a moment of excitement to your day and the joy of unique art ownership to your life when you receive your Mystery Art Envelope in the month of your choice.

For all who pledge for a Mystery Art Envelope Commission, I will create three pieces of bespoke art which will be based on the information you provide in your survey. Or not. Your choice. Some people live closer to the edge than others.

Once this Kickstarter is over, all who have pledged and whose funds have come through will receive a survey. The answers to this survey will be your way to tell me how to tailor your art for you - likes, dislikes, themes, topics, individual colors, color palettes ... and in the case of the Vintage Illustration, the option for you to choose the exact illustration (from over 300 options) I will color for you. Or you can just fill out your address and let my creativity run wild in which case the contents of your envelope will be even more of a mystery.

Examples of the types of art to be included in your envelope.

  • You will receive one of each type of art shown.
  • You will not receive these specific pieces of art.
  • The art in each envelope will be unique to you.
  • The art you receive may vary from the sizes shown in the examples.

Vintage Illustration

Colored by hand - my right hand to be specific

11" x 8.5"
11" x 8.5"

Mixed Media Tag

Decorative, not to be used for luggage.

3 1/8" x 6 1/4"
3 1/8" x 6 1/4"

Pocket Art Card

Possibly with quote, or not.

2.5" x 3.5" each
2.5" x 3.5" each

The only constraint upon the artwork is that it fits within a 10" x 13" envelope, and that the totality of the artwork sent be no thicker than 1/4".

Rewards

All Mystery Art Envelope Commission pledge rewards are of the same dollar amount. The difference is in which month you will receive your reward. And the art inside, of course.

Please note all reward delivery months are for next year, 2018.

Given that it's already November, there is too little time for me to consider and create something for you to arrive any earlier than January, the first month available to receive a reward.

There are four rewards for each of the months of January, February, and March, for a total of twelve Mystery Art Envelope Art Commission rewards.

As much as I like to plan, Life Happens, and for now, this is what I will promise you will receive.

My name is Heidi and I create art of the varieties noted above. This project is a chance for me to make art for you, something I find very exciting.

Instead of Homeless Art, this is Requested Art - there is someone looking forward to having this art, which makes it far more interesting to create. And, I hope, far more interesting for you to receive, as no one else, now or in the future, will ever have the same art that arrives in your mailbox (I take no responsibility for art created by me in parallel dimensions or alternate realities).

Funds raised by this project will be used for more art supplies, because Copic marker refill cartridges and Tim Holtz inks are more important than chocolate. If nothing else, that tells you how seriously I take my art.

Thanks for reading this far!

Risks and challenges

I have completed five successful Kickstarter campaigns and have backed over 150 projects, so I know what needs to happen on the Creator's side, and what Backers expect to happen from their perspective. The rewards for this project are limited in number so each backer's art will receive dedicated time and care. Updates will be posted to keep you informed of how the project is progressing during and after the campaign. Tracking numbers will be assigned if available and relayed to the backer. Should your envelope not arrive at all, or arrive damaged, I will create new art for you and send out another envelope. Please message me via Kickstarter with any questions or concerns, at any time.
