creative together 8" x 8"
First - a heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our early adopters and Kickstarter Backers!! 6 days in and we're 14% funded.
I realized when I sent out my first email and posted about the campaign, Kickstarter may be new to many of you.
If you aren't familiar with Kickstarter. How it works is: we get NOTHING unless we fund it COMPLETELY. Also this means, your card will not be charged until October 5 and ONLY IF WE REACH OUR GOAL.
If you are considering becoming a backer, we greatly appreciate if you do it sooner rather than later. More support at the beginning of the campaign from backers who know me and my work, will instill confidence in additional backers who might be meeting me for the first time through Kickstarter.
Why did I choose Kickstarter? Because there are now several crowd funding sites, including ones where whatever funds you raise, you get. Launching a Kickstarter campaign is more challenging and I like a good challenge :-) No, really, Kickstarter was the first crowd funding site I supported. I believe wholeheartedly in their mission and have been backing Kickstarter projects since 2011. For me, there is nothing better than empowering an individual to build something themselves. And honestly I think this is just the beginning of what is becoming a new approach to our economy.
Crowd Funding = every single donation counts. This means a combined effort from a lot of people acting together, can make something happen that otherwise may never have been made. It's amazing. We get to decide what we want to see more of in the world.
THANK YOU again to our backers so far. You have no idea how much it means to have you believe in our project at this early stage.
I wil be updating the campaign regularly as we go along. This week I have added a video preview featuring a short segment of my interview with Los Angeles artist, Outi Harma, along with a new art print of the image above and original paintings reward choices for all our backers. Next update: another preview! along with a reveal of more creatives who have just signed on to be featured in future episodes.
