9 Yards (27 feet) of canvas filled up in 5 days with a style that's akin to the whimsy of Dr Seuss & geometric ambiguity of MC Escher!

45 Hours To Go - Bonus Rewards Galore!

We've got a little less than 45 hours left on this project and are far from the goal. However, I've never been one to let things go easy. I've got a bonus reward incentive to strangers. Yes - strangers! If you don't know me and donate $4 or more, you'll get a small piece of surprise art from me for the cost of postage.

I've also got bonus rewards for people just in Buenos Aires. Ink drawings in very well made frames. There are only a few!Edit

I've also added 3 ink drawings as bonus rewards:

I would, again, like to thank everyone who has helping me with this. Funding or no, it's been a lot of fun!

A Crazy 5 Days & The Whole 9 Yards

[información en español] //// Inspiration has come in all forms to get me here. Amazing, quirky, and awe inducing Kickstarter project mixed with the graffiti and art culture in Buenos Aires, Argentina really inspired me have one last hurrah before leaving this painted up city.

I want to have one last BIG art project (81 sq ft worth) before leaving this aesthetic-centric, painted-up city. It's simple:

Goals:

My biggest goal, really, is to share this experience and my artwork with you – all of you - people who know and love me but, importantly, others who are discovering my work for the first time.  Connecting with people who will join me on this adventure (and others yet to hatch) will be the best and most precious thing to come out of this project.

I want to see what happens when I'm forced beyond my current stock of images and shapes, when I've promised to incorporate your concepts into my work, when I’ve only 5 days to materialize 9 yards (27 feet) of color, eye-tricks, characters, whimsy, and depth.

I’ll create a book that documents it all - "The Whole 9 Yards ~ 5 Crazy Days with a Seuss-Escher Lovechild” comprising photos taken during the event and epic wrap party.

What's the Money Going Toward?

Every backer who contributes over $5 will get something tangible. So, that means a lot of supplies, ordering, time, shipping, and production. I'll be getting the highest quality of every material. Most or all of the rewards money will go toward the following:

  • Postcard prints
  • Handmade envelope materials
  • Magnets
  • 9 yards x 1 yard of canvas
  • Ink & Paint
  • High quality prints
  • High quality pens & paper for original artwork
  • A week with a Professional photographer (talented Beatrice Murch!)
  • Photo-book production
  • Shipping (a biggie, remember I'm shipping from Argentina!)

Sharing is caring...

I'll Be Kicking it Forward:

**This is neat!: http://kickingitforward.org ~ From Kicking It Forward:

"Any project creator that puts the KickingItForward.org URL on their Kickstarter project page is agreeing that they will put 5% of their finished product profits back into other Kickstarter projects. To be abundantly clear, this is only money that the creator earns as profit AFTER the project ships and AFTER they have paid their expenses."

I have a suggestion / question!?
