Work in progress for Kickstarter reward.
“(continued from Common denominators, part 1)
Given that business is ultimately the means by which we are able to afford our own time to consume, to create, and fill all the spaces between, it is necessary to understand that without a thing (a skill, a product, a service, etc.) that is either of use or want to someone else, that we are left without the means to exchange our time for theirs.
We are ultimately dealing with the currency of time, all things governed by such. This stated, time seems rather an important, albeit abstract element to leverage.

Ideation Video, original sketches, Limited Edition folios, prints and more:http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/492770556/the-spoils-of-saint-hubris
As we enter the last leg of this campaign- we are including a signed, Original sketch on one of ten business sized cards from images related to the exhibition. Each deck includes an original, signed sketch. This miniature portolio will be printed in full color on heavy weight stock.

*Stretch rewards not included with other reward levels.
STRETCH INCENTIVE: #5 ORIGINAL INK DRAWING ON 8 1/2” x 11” HEAVY-WEIGHT PAPER of “Ambition”. I intend to develop the “Ambition” character as a dimensional sculpture for the second exhibition in “The Spoils of Saint Hubris” series where he will play a large role in this developing narrative. These 10 ink drawings will be essential in the development of this important sculpture and will be chronicled through my blog, and offered as one color, limited edition prints when completed. This is your opportunity to own the original drawing that inspires the sculpture and prints. *Stretch rewards are not offered in combination with other reward levels.
Image shown is the concept sketch only. The final drawings will be refined to a level of finish.
KICKSTARTER UPDATE: Those of you who have backed at the $30 level may be interested in seeing the proofs of The Spoils of Saint Hubris poster. This open-edition poster is being printed in 3-colors on 100 lb paper and will be signed by the artists (me:).
Special thanks to Spencer at Team-Eight and Will at Triple-Stamp Press for their work on this. Next up- we’ll be printing Limited (100) Edition versions of the the image, with a fourth color, on 140 pound paper, without the gallery information, suited for framing, signed and numbered. Updates shortly!
By request, I have put together the rough design of the “A Fruitless Endeavor” Limited (125) Edition Screen Print reward for my Kickstarter campaign. *The image shown is not the screen-print. Given it’s complexity, we are bumping up from 6 colors to 8. This is going to be a challenge to print and the final will deviate from the examples shown.
We will be printing with one spot metallic accent ink on 19” x 25” heavyweight French’s paper. Includes blind debossing. Signed and numbered by the artist. This reward incentive includes the folio and Limited Edition catalogue reward levels ($225 and $150). That’s a lot of Limited.
