KICEY to ICELAND or how to become a patron of the arts
In about two months (mid-to-late June) I will be going to take a trip to Iceland for 5 days for the sole purpose of taking photographs and making art. My flight is already booked! I expect to spend some time in the southwest around Reykjavik as well as going to the northwestern fjords around Djupavik. I haven't really gone anywhere beyond a few hours drive radius in two years so I'm really quite hungry to travel somewhere truly unique and a bit remote.
One of my friends suggested that she would like to sponsor my trip in exchange for a print of something I take while I am there. At first I thought it was ridiculous but then it dawned on me that it was a brilliant idea... I decided it would be a both an incentive for me to make beautiful things and a great way of raising funding to create a little art sponsorship program. I already have a several people sponsoring me which makes me very excited, and hugely appreciative. I can't thank them enough and it makes me even more excited to do great work while I am there.
For a pledge of $30, I will give you a print of your choice from the excursion, 8"x12" (or proportional to image) in size, for $50 an 11"x17" print, for for $100 a print. For pledges greater than
$100 you may mix and match prints of different sizes.
Of course if you would prefer to not receive a print and just make a pledge, that would be fine too!
I expect to have all images processed and available here by the end of June: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kicey/sets/72157617315940340/ (the self-portrait which is there now is just a placeholder image, and not actually taken in Iceland or available as a print)
