All houses sold! Buy the limited edition art book instead!
Hey, I’m Bert, an artist from Belgium and I go by the name Musketon. ‘Vector City’ is my personal art project in which I want to combine my love for illustration and architecture.
My goal is to create a high-end, detailed and limited edition art print by drawing a city of 100 houses. Houses of 100 different people from all over the world. The result will be an amazing and colourful blend of different architectural styles!
Why am I doing this? I want to bring people together in this project by involving them in the process of creation. Vector City is a project of connecting people with each other via drawings. If you back this project, you will be a citizen of Vector City with only 99 other people from all over the world.
What You Will Get...
By pledging 150€ (166$) you'll not just get one, but two high-quality art prints signed and numbered by myself. The first print is an overview of all the houses from people who backed the project. The second print will be a close up view of your illustrated house. Two prints? Great deal!
In exchange for supporting this project, I came up with several rewards in different price ranges that include perks such as:
- A limited and high-quality art print of the city (1 out of 100).
- A limited and high-quality art print of your house (1 out of 1).
- A postcards from Vector City.
- Pick a street name.
- Become the mayor.
- Advertising on one of the two billboards.
- You receive a time-lapse video of how your house is coming to life in Adobe Illustrator (like video below)
- The prints will ship out with a certificate of authenticity.
- Once the goal is reached I will release a series of stretch goals.
Some more info about some of the perks...
You will receive a postcard from the major of Vector City with a personal note on the back as a thank you for supporting this project.
Each of the 10 streets of Vector City will have a custom designed street sign displaying the name of the street.
Want to be the Mayor of Vector City? You get you head printed on all stamps!
All postcards will be sent out to people that supported the project using custom designed stamps. When you support the project by being the Mayor of Vector City I will create a vector portrait of you. That portrait will be used on all the stamps. Pretty awesome, right?
There are only two billboards in Vector City that are available for advertising, choosing this support will get you 1 of those billboards! Each ad campaign will be created by me.
For each house I create I will make a time-lapse video of the process.
I need your help...
By supporting this art project, you buy 1 of the 100 drawings of houses I want to create, which eventually will be used to create the print of the final city. At a pace of 2 illustrations per day it should take me around 60 days to accomplish my mission. Sounds reasonable! Right?
Just like a real city, a grid divides the available surface into 100 individual spots which are then subdivided into 10 different streets. Each street has a custom sign and name and each house will be numbered.
My main focus is to bring this art project to life, which requires a minimum of 6000€. The funds from this Kickstarter will cover the materials needed to produce these high-quality prints
Quality of the print...
- Dimensions: A2 print (420 x 594mm)
- Maco silk 250g
- 0,23 mm, coating: matte print.
- CMYK uv-resistant.
Updates and Timeline...
If you want to stay up-to- date on the progress of the city, you can subscribe to a weekly (online) newspaper (The Vector Times).
Every house in the city will be posted on my Instagram account where you can follow the progress of this project. I will personally email you when your illustration is done and include a time-lapse video of how I created it.
The goal is to finish the whole project within 60 days so that every print can be shipped in the beginning of December. That way it makes a perfect Christmas present!
- Passports: You'll get a personal passport from Vector City with a portrait and basic info of yourself.
This is not my first crazy idea...
As a self-employed and passionate artist I am always on a mission for new projects that can make the world a bit more colourful. Here is what I did with Mazda :)
Thank you so much for your consideration in supporting this project. I'm thrilled for the opportunity to share more of my art with you. And create Vector City!
Risks and challenges
With my knowledge of Adobe Illustrator and my title of Adobe New Creative there are close to no risks when it comes to being able to deliver my artwork on time.
The project could get delayed due to unforeseen circumstances that are out of my control, such as my computer that might explode, or monkeys stealing my postcards. But chances of that happening are zero to none so no worries!
Potential changes in the delivery date will be communicated carefully with every one supporting the project.
As a public artist persona, my reputation is at stake. If I were to fail at fulfilling what is expressed in this project it would be a disaster for me. So rest assured, you're supporting a highly accountable artist.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
