Spread the word, Indiegogo campaign is live!
As of last Friday my Indiegogo campaign to raise money for my art book is finally live. For those of you who don’t know what all this is about I will explain.
For the past two years I have been working on my ‘Boroughs project’ officially titles ‘Discoveries: Montreal’. For this project I have visited and photographed each of Montreal’s 34 boroughs, driving, -biking and walking, to capture the iconic and quirky details that give each borough its distinct character in a tapestry of villages that make up the island’s rich landscape. With all these picture i have created 34 art works representing each borough on the island.
To keep the series together I want to create a 96 page art book that will include high quality images of all the pieces as well as information about the artist and some insights in the creation process. In order to be able to publish the book Ii’m going to need some help that’s why I started the Indiegogo campaign.
Indiegogo is a crowd funding site that helps artists raise money to realize their dreams. With contributions starting as low as $5.- there are some great rewards, ranging from personalized cards and high quality prints to acknowledgements in the book and signed copies.
I am very happy to announce that we’ve managed to get our first funds already! The campaign will run until June 23, 2013 so there’s plenty of time to get on board! Even if you can't give any money, there are plenty of other ways to help me achieve this goal. Please share this project with all of your friends, family members and acquaintances both on and off-line. Use Facebook and Twitter (or any other social media site), blog about it, talk about it with your colleagues or your hairdresser, tell as many people as you can! I truly appreciate all the help I can get!
