Books and Art – Kickstarter Campaign

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to see some more tiny people. It’s been a year since I completed my last painting Undaunted Courage, and I’ve spent the time since working on my animal silhouette series. I’m happy with the way things are going, but I miss the figures, I really do.

So, how bout it? Wanna see me get back to people – the drawings and oil paintings? This week I launched my campaign to start a new oil series about literature. I figured since I ended on books, why not start back up with the same theme? Instead of painting random people, though, my new pieces will be focused on some of the most famous characters in all of literature.

  • Dracula
  • Jane Eyre
  • Holden Caulfield
  • Sherlock Holmes
  • Captain Ahab
  • Don Quixote
  • Atticus Finch

There are really too many to count, and I hope I get to paint a lot of them. BUT, I need some help. I can’t get back to painting unless my funding goal is reached. That’s the great thing about Kickstarter.com. After you help out by pledging, you get something as a reward. There are different levels, from just a few dollars, up to high amounts that get you things like original artwork.

So, if you’ve enjoyed my artwork in the past and have the time and means to chip in, please do so. Like I said before, I can’t do this project unless I reach the goal. I’m ready to get my sketches going again and break out the turps and oils!
