About

 NEW YORK ISLAND

The full color illustration.
The full color illustration.

For four months I have been working on a illustration of New York and it is finally done. My goal was to capture the essence of New York in a fun abstract illustration. The illustration consists of the buildings, pop culture and history of New York from the past, present and future. The illustration was hand drawn with brush and ink then colored digitally. After hundreds of hours of drawing and coloring it is ready to be printed! I am offering a variety of print options including limited edition pieces. Great for decorating office spaces, game rooms, and dorms!

Risks and challenges

For this project, the risks and challenges are very small. The artwork is already done and the printing arrangements are in line. I just need to know how many prints to produce. I've fulfilled many print orders on my Etsy shop so I have abundant knowledge on how to ship artwork safely and efficiently. I will be adding signature confirmation to every order to make sure that your artwork makes it to your home without getting lost or stolen. If there are any problems or questions please feel free to contact me.

Instead of waiting months (or sometimes years) for the delivery of your Kickstarter rewards, this project will begin shipping within one month of the end of the funded project. At the very latest I will have everything shipped by July 1st 2015.

The biggest risk is not getting fully funded. That is why I need your help to get the word out and make this happen. Please reach out to anyone you think would be interested in this project and let them know about it.

Best wishes,
Nathan Doverspike
