Thanks to everyone who's contributed to helping me hit my initial goal! Now that I'm there, I've got some fun stretch goals in consideration:
$400- Bigger, better prints for my show. Every backer will receive an album of photos from my show with a personal thank-you.
$500- Frames! At this point I will be able to both print larger, and frame those babies! At this point I will personally thank each of you on an upcoming episode of Worth the Wait.
$600- Better prints and better frames. I'll probably just die of happiness at this point.
Hello! My name is Caitlin Clark, and I can often be found cruising through Kickstarter to find projects to highlight on my YouTube show Worth The Wait with the goal of getting awesome creators more views. Well, now I'm here asking for your help.
A little about me
I'm a senior at Central Michigan University, and I was raised in southern Michigan. I'm the lucky daughter of two absolutely amazing parents who taught me about love, laughter, respect, and art of many forms. I hope to one day be a professional corgi rancher, but if that doesn't work out, I will do my best to fall back on video game concept art.
A little about my exhibition
A Fantastic History is my graduation exhibition upon receiving my BFA from Central Michigan University. The show will consist of seven digital paintings printed on canvas, and a few multi-media pieces. The show is a look at a moment in time of the fantasy world Dawen: a planet my brain has been creating for the past four years.
The show finds Dawen in a time of war, and the pieces mimic portraiture by master painters Caravaggio, Velazquez, and George Dawe. Alongside the paintings are maps, journals, and relics from the time to give clues into the politics, economics, and the 'why's 'who's and 'how's of the world.
A little about the reward tiers
As rewards, I'm very excited to offer you what I love to do- make art. I will work directly with you to create unique and beautiful pieces that you can easily give as gifts, use digitally as desktop wallpapers, or print.
A little about the risks
As mentioned both below and in the video, not reaching funding simply means not all of my work will reach printing. The show consists of seven digital paintings, four of which have been printed.
For anyone interested, below I've posted an episode of Worth the Wait, the show I co-host with the ever-competent JustOKWally. You can find both of us at twitter at twitter.com/justokcaiters and twitter.com/justokwally
Risks and challenges
Printing on canvas and framing is quite expensive, and up until now I have been entirely self-funded, but now I'm turning to Kickstarter because I fear that without a little bit of support, I will be forced to scrap pieces from my show- and I want it to be the best it can be.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
