Update #9

Awards Being Packaged, and ArtWalk Update

1 comment

Hi Backers and Fans,

A lot has happened since our last update!  Thanks to those of you who stopped by our display at the Mission Federal ArtWalk on April 28th & 29th.  It was great to see you, and we're sorry we weren't able to spend much time with you - we were swamped with visitors!  This was what we like to call a "positive problem."

We spent the day visiting with people and selling art!  The two days of the show were a great success, and we sold over half the work on display, and snagged a few large commissions as well. Read more about the event (and see photos) on our most recent blog post here:  ArtWalk a Success!

Take special note of the photos of the display - the handmade walls, shelves, and other display materials were funded by you!  Each of the white pillars contains a 12v battery and power inverter, and has an outlet installed on the back so we could plug the art in and light it up. The letterpress prints were funded through kickstarter, and almost half of the work on display was finished with materials we were able to purchase because of this project's funding!

Also on that blog post is our public "THANK YOU" to those of you who backed us. So go to the website and read the blog - we give kudos to you, and we say this again: we couldn't have done it without you.

Here's an update on the rewards and our progress on getting them out to you:

Thank You Print:  Rachel is working on the design for the woodcut block.  We've got the materials, and will probably be printing these in a few weeks, and mailing them out the last week in May.

T-shirts: We've got them!  We had about 25 orders through kickstarter, and had 50 shirts made, so if you or someone you know wants to snag one of these, let us know!  They are still priced at $25 each. We'll be sending them out by the end of May.

Letterpress Prints: Rachel has hand-numbered and signed 75 of the 300 prints we had made, and they are nicely packaged with a protective backing and sleeve.  We'll begin hand-delivery to those of you we run into in San Diego over the next week or two, and otherwise ship them by the end of May.  If you or someone you know wants one of these, they are $35 each.

Pendants: We've got some of them done, and are finishing up the rest over the next two weeks. If you're expecting a print and a pendant, they will come in the mail seperately (as will the t-shirts).  And like the others, we'll ship them out by the end of May!  Our post-kickstarter price for pendants is $75 each.

Commissioned Artwork ($150+):  Some of our backers at this level came down to ArtWalk and picked up a piece of art as part of their pledge - congratulations!  We completed one commissioned piece this week using a beautiful slab of Hawaiian koa, artisan papers, and hand-made copper-toned fittings.  For those of you that are still thinking about what you'd like to use your kickstarter funds for, keep those wheels turning and let us know what you're thinking!

Don't forget to check out the article about Work of My Hands in San Diego CityBeat magazine - it drew quite a few people down to ArtWalk to see our work.
