THE "I AM YOUR ONE WAY TICKET" ART T-SHIRT PROJECT

 

I've always been interested in screenprinting my own tshirts with custom designs created from fragments of my own artwork. This is the fruition of that idea, but there's one problem - it's costly to get a quality product screenprinted as an independant artist.

With your support, I will be doing a small size run of t-shirts in both men's and women's cuts. This is also your opportunity to take advantage of being one of the first people to get one of these shirts. There are also some amazing perks available for those who love my original pieces as well. All of my perks and the original design for this shirt come from the in-progress series, Dream Fevers, more of which can be viewed through my Facebook page.

This particular project will help fund an artist from the small city of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, support the local businesses and help share art with the world. Like the design? Consider donating and being a part of something that will make my heart smile!

FUNDS
I have set a goal for this fundraising campaign at an amount that would cover costs associated with screenprinting and shipping the shirts, as well as fulfilling some of the perks. The quality of product I'm looking for isn't cheap, but the more shirts I run, the less expensive it gets. If I were to go over my fundraising goal, I would increase the amount of shirts produced, as well as the quanity of the t-shirt perks, adding some additional art goodies as well. Reaching my goal will also open the door to producing more art shirts and a variety of designs incorporating my own artwork - this is what my long term goal with this would be in getting the venture off it's feet.

I decided the best way to go about handling this particular project is with fixed funding - this means if I can't get the project funded completely, no one is out money and the t-shirts will have to wait to come to fruition some other time. I also chose IndieGoGo because it opens up my project to a broader audience, gives the world an idea of what I'm capable of, and takes care of the financial management of the project if I don't hit my goal.

ABOUT THE DESIGN
The design is based off the original piece, "I am your one way ticket". Halfway through the creation of the piece, I scanned it into Adobe Photoshop and finished it through digital painting. The design has been on quite a journey since then. Having a few shots at being printed, but none panning out, I finally decided to take the matter into my own hands.

PERKS

All perks will be shipped mid-to-late March, as the campaign finishes on March 15th. The bigger the perk, the longer the arrival. Everyone will receive their perks by the end of April.

Thank-You Perk: The Thank-You Perk package comes with a handmade thank you card with a heartfelt note, and some art goodies to keep for yourself, as well as a limited edition mini print that is signed and numbered.

The BOGO Perk: In this package, I'm offering an unframed, signed and numbered small print on lightweight watercolour paper along with the shirt in your size (or whichever size and style you'd like). The print will be from my Dream Fevers collection, This package includes the Thank-You Perk. 

The Perks with Original Pieces: The Double-Up Perks, the Large Art Perks, and the XL Art Perk all come with original pieces. These are a steal and the best value if you love my art or my style. The Double-Up and Large Art Perks contain never-before-seen pieces that will be released for viewing halfway through the campaign. The XL Art Perk has a predetermined size - but the content is up to you. If you take a look at the collection thus far via Facebook, you can see the style of commission. I can work from a photo, a loose concept, or you are free just to leave it up to me. The XL Art perk also contained a framed, limited edition signed print of "I am your one way ticket".

Above: An example from Dream Fevers called Emotional Overconsumption, and will also be the art print for the BOGO Perk

ABOUT JESSICA
Jessica Molčan is in her twenties and resides on the west coast of Canada on beautiful Vancouver Island. After completing her Bachelor's degree in English Literature and Visual Art, Jessica has continued to pursue her artistic endeavours as both a freelance illustrator/designer, and a practising visual artist, booking shows and selling pieces. Her inspiration is derived from her subconscious, fears and hopes, observations and the world around her. Jessica is continually striving to better herself and skill set as an artist.

Her pieces each contain their own haunted preservation of memory and can be read a variety of ways. Fascinated with the push and pull reaction, Jessica attempts to make her audience uncomfortable while still presenting a thing of beauty. This reaction has been consistent among Jessica's showings, and is especially true of the pieces most visceral, ominous and disturbing. It is the chase of this reaction that helps Jessica to keep evolving as an artist.
