Letting folks know of a project I'm working on......
I know there is a lot of overlap in internet boater forum world, so am assuming that most of you have heard my stuff over on boatertalk or mountainbuzz, BUT also CA is it's own place (that I absolutely need to hit up sooooooon) so it would be ignorant of me to not post here too.
So, those who know, then you know already...
For everyone else who is too busy working or actually boating to surf multiple sites, here's the deal...
I have an art project that centers around the Grand Canyon.
The way I am processing pictures is a modern twist on a technique that goes back to just before Powell first ran the Grand Canyon (and the rest of the Colorado River). I feel that it best expresses the experience of a GC trip because of the historical connection as well as the focus and effort it takes to make the pictures this way (much like all the focus and effort it takes to do a two-week trip in the winter).
At the mid-point of this project, I have found that I've spent all my money but still have a long way to go. That's where the Kickstarter thing comes in. I'm asking for help. I have reduced the price of existing art work in the hopes that I can fund future art work. Most of the funding has already come from the art world, friends, family, etc. But, when I designed the rewards for those who find a way to back this project, I was thinking of boaters. That's why the $10 - $125 range is stacked with many options that are either chock full of goodies and super not expensive.
10 days left.
2/3 the way there.
If it does not get fully funded then it does not happen (and nobody gets charged, thus no real risk)
If you see something you like, then feel free to participate.
If you have questions, then feel free to ask me through the Kickstarter page.
If you know someone who would like the project, whether or not they want to be a backer, even if they just want to follow it to see how it progresses..... then pass the link along.
I hope everyone's summer is full of sunshine and good water.
