In 2016 I started a Kickstarter to help fund a solo show at the Play Dead gallery in Southsea. Some of the pledges from that campaign were for commissioned pieces of art and today I was finally able to deliver the very last of those commissions. I don't usually hand deliver work because of the pressure of seeing your art being unwrapped by its new owner but as the pledge was from someone local I decided I would and I'm really glad I did.
Here are a couple of pics of the artwork. It is titled "The Fear Goes Away".
What a great way to start the weekend! My Kickstarter is fully funded which means a massive thanks to everyone that has pledged or shared the campaign page over the past three weeks. The funding will go towards printing stickers, badges, temporary tattoo sheets, limited edition prints, t-shirts, hoodies and art materials for my exhibition at the Play Dead tattoo studio and street art gallery in Southsea.
To be kept up to date with the latest details of the exhibition and dates for the preview night please sign up for my newsletter.
There is still time to pledge and grab yourself a bargain. The limited edition prints at £20 are nearly sold out, only 4 remaining of 20 as I write this and the "full bundle" is a great bargain where you get stickers, badges, tattoos, a t-shirt and a hoodie all for just £65 (save £20). Lots more combos to choose from on the Kickstarter page.
To find out more about Play Dead visit the Strong Island website for articles on previous exhibitions including Kazland & Funns and My Dog Sighs plus a special interview with owners Samo and Lex.
I've been given an opportunity to have a solo exhibition at the Play Dead street art gallery on the south coast of England so I'm running a Kickstarter campaign to help me pay for it.
