Out with the old, in with the NEW!
Out with the old, in with the NEW!

"HOME SWEET HOME" - A timeless message updated for the 21st century. Welcome visitors to your home with sweet sentiments as familiar as the welcome mat and as comforting as the smell of burnt cookies.  There's really no reason why we can't have our donut and eat it too, amiright?!  

Guests to your home will squeal with delight once they discover your weird, warm, welcoming message!
Guests to your home will squeal with delight once they discover your weird, warm, welcoming message!

The PERFECT GIFT for newlyweds, new home owners, and new neighbors (especially if they've got a sweet tooth).

This fun and funky watercolor charms at a glance, but also rewards the attentive viewer with wall-to-wall detail. The gorgeous, glossy 18 by 24 inch print fits in a standard frame for ease of exhibition.

I made this 50 x 30 inch drawing with an old-fashioned steel-tipped pen & India ink and then watercolored it with up 30 layers of color in order to achieve peak saturation. Watch the insane 2 min. video below for a time-lapse view of the drawing being made along with a chaotic tour of my studio/sketchbooks.

It's my hope that the funds from this campaign will help me to launch the next (4th) piece in my "BIG" series: BIG VACATION. Due to unfortunate "life" circumstances I've been unable to get to my studio to work on BIG VACATION for the past year. In addition to paying for the production and distribution of HOME SWEET HOME, the success of this campaign will also help me to complete my next, most ambitious piece yet so that I may offer it to collectors sometime in 2019. 

You, Apartment dwellers, Your extended family members, Renters, Your friends, Homeowners, Boarders, Couch surfers in need of an ass-kissing gift, Housewarmers, The collegiate set, Real estate agents (in bulk), Japanese hotel pod decorators, Tree house club presidents, Tiny home hipsters, Airbnb hosts, Harry Potter in the cupboard under the stairs, Keebler tree elves, Those in the Know 

Also available is a color-it-yourself print of HOME SWEET HOME where you can spend some quality time adding your own personality to the print.

I'm painfully aware of how expensive framing can be, especially when the print size doesn't fit into a standard off-the-shelf frame. That's why HOME SWEET HOME measures 18" x 24". It's a standard size which means you have a plethora of economical frame-it-yourself options available anywhere that sells frames (Michael's, Blick, Hobby Lobby, Target, Wal-Mart, Amazon, Ikea, Dollar Tree). A new method I recently learned about is this cheap and nice looking magnetic style frame. A alternative option to framing which I love is glossy lamination (not matte). It works beautifully. It costs about $20 and most Kinko's/FedEx/Staples stores will do it on the same day. After the print is laminated it becomes virtually indestructible (think about what happens to stuff hanging in your kids' rooms) and you can even write on it with dry-erase markers. If that's your thing. 

All of the paper used for my prints derive from majority post-consumer waste recycled paper. Additionally, my printing process utilizes environmentally friendly soy-based inks that contain no volatile organic compounds, opposed to traditional petroleum-based inks which are terrible for the earth.

Risks and challenges

I'm pretty darn sure I can fulfill all of the reward obligations people have pledged for in a timely manner (every pledge from my five previous Kickstarter campaigns: BIG CANAL, BIG HOSPITAL, 82 Donuts, BIG SCHOOL and ALPHABET CITY were all successfully fulfilled on time).
