About

$1,537

77

I grew up in the heyday of the Space Shuttle program. It sparked a lifelong interest in me about outer space, planets, and science. My life took a more artistic, though equally creative path and I've never lost that fascination with the solar system and universe beyond. I hope you share that interest and consider supporting this little art project of mine. 

Someday we'll all get postcards from friends in space. Until then, these colorful earth based correspondences will have to do. ; )

Sample Test Run of Printed Postcards

 The Postcards

There are 9 postcards in the set. Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and a Sun/Solar System card. (Apologies to Pluto but science doesn't consider you a real planet anymore. Maybe next time!). 

Each postcard will be printed on 16pt matte card stock, 5 by 7 inches in size. Artwork is not final until it goes to press and might change slightly but only very slightly. 

 

 

 

 

 The Sticker Sheet

The sticker sheet will include all 9 images and be printed on a 4x6 sticker sheet. Each individual planet sticker is 1.25 by 1.75 inches. 

 The PDF Coloring Book

The 8.5x11 inch PDF coloring book contains all 9 images reworked into line art suitable for coloring! Includes a extra 10th page of all 9 b/w images together. 

The Rewards

$1. An 8.5x11 inch PDF Coloring Book of all the images, reworked into black and white line art.

My 3rd trip to the KSC but the first since they installed the Atlantis exhibit. Very cool!

Risks and challenges

This is my first campaign to include a sticker sheet and with all first times there are potential pitfalls. However, I've done several successful postcard projects so I believe I can fulfill this campaign just as well. Thanks!
