About this project
Particulars of the the perpetrator:
I am a professional fairy and fantasy artist and illustrator best known for painting fairies, kitsune (Japanese fox spirits) and fantasy women in fantastical costumes. I am the author of the books Watercolor Made Easy: Fairies and Fantasy, and Fantasy Fashion Art Studio.
The perks and premiums she proposes:
A pixie postcard set featuring my artwork. The set will start with a rainbow of 8 popular designs from my paintings. Cards will be 4x6 inches and printed with glossy full color front and back and rounded corners. The back of each card will feature a newly-created, thematically matched border design. If funding is successful more designs will be added!
The designs include: Gathering Poppies, Spirit of the Ginkgo, Lady in Green, Oak Fairy, Throne of Ravens, Wisteria, Dragon Sentinel, and Gears and Glass.
What precisely is a Pixiepocalypse?
A Pixiepocalypse is rumored to occur when a high number of pixie images are shared with the world. When you send pixie postcards to your pals you spread the magic, wonder, and mischief of pixies across the globe. No one knows what will happen, but perhaps it might involve rainbows and glitter!
This Kickstarter project would allow me to print more designs in a larger quantity than I normally would, with color printing on both sides. I will be able to fulfill rewards and have cards left over for conventions and wholesale orders.

About the Rewards:
Stickers: 1.5 inch glossy vinyl stickers come 4 to a sheet.
Prints: An archival photographic print reproduction of my paintings. Most prints have a small outer border. Not all the postcard images are available at large sizes because they were painted small. I will post a list of available prints at each size. After the funding period has ended you can let me know your choice.
Scrolls: Hand sewn (by me) fabric scrolls are approximately 8.5x25 inches are lightweight and can be easily hung on wall hooks and fit into small spaces.
Ink drawings: An original random black and white fantasy ink drawing on 5.5x 8.5 inch brown toned paper.
ACEO Paintings: An original trading card sized watercolor fantasy painting (2.5x3.5 inches). You will be able to provide a keyword and color as themes for inspiration.
Zipper pouch: 5x8 inch polyester pouch that's the perfectly sized for art supplies, pens, pencils, make-up or anything else you can think of. There are three designs available. Please pick the reward with your favorite listed.
Tote Bags: 13x17 inch light weight canvas tote, with art printed directly on it. Tote bags are machine washable.
Original Paintings: The original paintings, Throne of Ravens (8x10 inches) and Lady in Green (8.5x11 inches) are paint in watercolor over a detailed ink drawing. Each painting is matted in a cream color mat to fit in a 11x14 inch frame.

Risks and challenges
I am very confident in my chosen printer and I don't foresee having any any problems, although there is always a chance of printing or shipping mishaps. If that happens I will try to work out any problems with my printers. Shipping a large number of cards and and creating any custom rewards will be a challenge. I plan to tackle the rewards in batches in order to minimize complications. Any rewards that require custom artwork creation will be shipped at the end. If we are wildly successful I will have to log a lot of pen, ink, brush and sewing machine mileage this summer! I will be sure to give updates throughout the process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
