Kickstarter - Make 100 - Limited Edition Custom Giclee Print FUNDED!
The campaign has now finished but I'll be leaving the information below.
I'm launching a Kickstarter January 2019 for the Make 100 project. I plan to Make 100 Limited Edition Custom Giclee Prints.
Here's the link to the project.

I have set a modest target of £500 with pledges including £1 for a donation, £25 for an 8 inch square open edition print, £50 for a limited edition custom print and £500 for the original artwork.
I chose this particular piece for my #Make100 project as it’s a very important to me. It was the first piece that made me realize that I wanted to be involved with art full time. It’s named Order Increasing as it was the impetus for me to outline a plan to achieve that goal (and it's politer than Get your A*se In Gear Simon). Now I hope that it will not only get me closer to that goal but also inspire others to take a step towards what they truly want to do with their time and energy.
I want to offer this piece in a way that you can make personal to you. I hope, by offering it in a limited edition with customisation options, that when you see it hanging in your office/workshop/studio(toilet?) it will remind you to keep going and follow through on the way to making your plans a reality.
This project has two goals for me; the first is to raise some funding for me to put towards changing my career to become an art tutor, something I would find much more worthy than my current job; Secondly and probably more important personally, it will allow me to inprove my work/life balance and spend more time with my family especially my son.
I’ve always enjoyed the therapeutic nature of doodling. In the year before my son was born I spent much of my little free time unwinding with a pen or paintbrush, letting what ever was on and in my mind out onto a page or canvas. Many see doodling as a way to occupy your hands whilst listening to infernal hold music or zoning out in a lecture. For me it is a true art form when it’s taken to the next level.
I’m working with a well established printer that I’ve used in the past to create accurate reproductions of my artwork. Offered is an open edition 8 inch square print and a limited edition 12 inch square print on Hahnemühle Bamboo. - Bamboo is the world's first digital fine art inkjet paper made from bamboo fibres. Bamboo represents spirituality, naturalness and resource-saving paper production. Bamboo really highlights the sensuality of images.
Giclee is a museum quality print using archival ink and paper that will last over 100 years. This is an exclusive kickstarter print for the 30 days of this campaign and will never be offered again. You can switch tiers any time before the campaign ends. UK Shipping is included and Rest-Of-World delivery is £7.50.
The 8 inch square open edition print will be of one of the many pre-made colour schemes. The colour scheme documant can be viewed on my website - INSERT LINK - and many of them will be featured here and on my instagram.
The 12 inch square limited edition print with custom options will include the option to have one of the pre-made colour schemes, but will include the option to select and name your own colour scheme. Once the project moves to the next stage I will send out a survey for you to pick your print. I will include tools for you to send me the accurate information for your custom colour scheme and I will also send you a low resolution proof to approve.
Inspiration for your colour scheme can come from anywhere. You may have a specfic room or wall you want to jazz up and can match it to your decor. You may have a favourite artist and can pull colours from their work. It could be colours that remind you of a loved one or even taken from a photo of a puppy!
Selections will need to be confirmed within 2 weeks to allow time for the print run and distribution.
I'm also offering the original sketchbook page for £1000! I really don't expect this to get pledged... but should someone want to help me out that much, and if this piece can help me that much too, I'd be dumbfounded and incredibly grateful.
