Patron21

Patron21

I recently found out about this neat crowd-sourcing website called Patron21. Visual artists, musicians, performance artists and other creative types can offer subscription services to their fans to gain consistent monthly funding to work on their art! I am trying it out to see if it goes anywhere. Like kickstarter artists are encouraged to offer rewards at different price points. I often have people ask me if they can get on a payment plan or have people tell me that they want to buy my work but don’t have enough money. So what I am doing is giving patrons a dollar for dollar credit for every dollar they spend on the subscription plus a discount…so after a year or so they could have $24+ ($2 is the minimum monthly subscription) saved up to spend on one of my creations. Everyone who subscribes between $2 and $100 gets a 10% discount. The discount gets larger with larger subscription plans. For additional fun I’m going to send all patrons a free coloring page each month included in a monthly email letting everyone know what I’m up to.

This is what I’m currently working on. Right now it’s a collaboration with Jamie Flam, Vanessa Ragland, Caryn Ruby, Valerie Dambold and whoever else wants to join in on the fun. Initially I wanted a song of made up jibberish that I could make a video to. I wanted to be able to throw in a lot of ornaglyphs and create something that wasn’t a literal interpretation of something else. Later on Jamie and I both decided it would be even more fun and exciting to open up the project to anyone who feels like contributing. Guidelines are below. Let me know if there are any questions!

The Song: You can listen to it here. This was written and performed by Jamie and Vanessa. I just noticed the link is broken so if you want in email me: info@ornaglyphology.com and I will send an mp3.

What I am looking for: Original artwork that is inspired by the song. This can include backdrops, paintings, scribbles, doodles, cartoon characters, ascemic writing, paint splatters, photographs, short video clips (5-20 seconds), etc. I will be using almost everything that gets contributed. And I want to emphasize that all skill levels are welcome! Even if you don’t feel like you are creative please jump in anyways, this will be fun! Be as spontaneous as you want to be. I will be using images/video layered in with my animations to be part of the scenery/atmosphere. The submissions may even influence what happens within the video on my end.

Things to know:

  •  Original art only please. Art/photos should be high-resolution (at least 300dpi). Keep in mind that I will be altering and layering the artwork to fit within the video and to create a consistent atmosphere. Email me at info@ornaglyphology.com if you want to contribute!
  • As of right now there is no deadline. When I get closer to finishing my art I will have a better of idea of when I need art from contributers!
  •  My motivation for creating this video is fun, experience and learning. I have no plans on monetizing Grombulus (except maybe for fundraising for charity, those plans are in the distant future) so there’s no pay involved here. Anyone who contributes will be in the credits.

Chicken Lady @ Right-Brained Studio

28 Oct

This photo was taken about a month ago at Right-Brained Studio’s pop-up gallery The Candy Store. I made this giant chicken lady for a window display that never was completed due to lack of resources and storage space. Now she’s on display in Oak Park! If anyone is interested in acquiring this bird I’ll take the best offer. Or go here and buy her.

Almost there…

I haven’t posted in awhile because I’ve been plugging away at the music video. I need to have it done no later than two weeks from now so that it can be submitted to a film festival! This week was spent working on the art for the last two verses. Tonight I am going to edit what I have left. I may need more art to fill it in, but I am going to wait and see….not the best way to approach it but I’m down to the wire as far as time.  Next week will be spent editing all of the mistakes. This will be tedious and time consuming but not so bad. So…don’t expect to see anything new on here for a couple weeks!

Digital Masterpieces = Affordable Gifts

I haven’t been posting much because I haven’t created anything that I can show off (quite yet). I’m working on a bunch of custom portraits for the holidays as well as an animatic/limited animation project. I don’t want to post any current artwork because I don’ t want any recipients to accidentally stumble upon them. So I dug up this portrait of a German Shepherd I made for a client. Her name is Elsa.

I wanted to point out that I am offering digital portraits in addition to gouache paintings. The digital portraits are a great way to purchase original art if you are on a budget. Digital portraits are $35 (and then $10 for each additional person/pet/special thing that you want added to that particular portrait).

If you are interested in purchasing a portrait email me at: mintimindi@gmail.com with a couple photos of the subject(s). You can also pay me via paypal at that email. Once the portrait is complete I will email you a high-resolution copy of the portrait which you are then responsible for printing (which can be done in many formats).

If you are interested or have any quesitions do not hesitate to email me or leave a comment here. The deadline for digital portrait orders is Dec. 14th but consider getting them in asap because I tend to get a lot of orders around this time.

Since I haven’t scanned any part of the new projects I’m working on I thought I would post this video by my good friend Kelly Pelka, with music by Jim Shea. She alternates between images of her mixed-media artworks and photography.  It’s a great use of video to showcase her awesome art! Check it out!
