Kickstarter Success

Totally after the fact as usual but I am incredibly pleased to announce that the Shove It! Kickstarter was a success and we ended up with 45% over the target fund raising amount. This means that the exhibition will go ahead as planned in June. Many thanks to Baykiddead and all involved for their hard work.

I myself made a small contribution to get hold of an awesome commemorative t-shirt designed by British illustrator Uberkraaft featuring the following image:

Here also is a full reveal of my design. I have ordered a few decks for myself and can’t wait to see how the real thing looks.

As for the paper toy you will have to wait for the exhibition.

Shove It! Kickstarter

A Kickstarter program has now been started by Baykiddead to help cover the costs of putting on the Shove It! exhibition that I introduced in my last post.
However they are not simply asking for donations – with Kickstarter rewards are offered depending on how much you contribute. For example if you pledge $75 then you can receive one of the decks from the exhibition. This time the pledge range is from between $5 and $10000. The project must reach its target of $6250 by April 3rd or all pledges will be lost.

Below is an updated selection of decks designs that have been submitted so far and also a widget displaying the current status of the campaign.
Every little helps so please contribute if you can. It’s a chance to help a great project and get hold of some amazing artwork.

Shove It!

A little while back paper pal Baykiddead invited me to take part in a very exciting project.
He told me that he was gathering artists for a group exhibition entitled Shove It! to raise money to build America’s largest free outdoor skatepark in downtown Des Moines (Iowa).
My job was to design a skateboard deck and accompanying paper toy.

The deck proved to be a big challenge as it a unique size and shape to work with and it took me a lot longer than I expected. Thankfully I just managed to finish my pieces before the deadline.
Baykiddead just revealed a preview of the first 5 designs, which can be seen above.
My design is titled “False Idol” and is my usual occult demon face affair.

Shove It! will take place from June 7th at the Polk County Heritage Gallery in Des Moines.
All the details including the artist line-up etc. can be found by clicking here.
There is also a Shove It! Facebook page.

I am extremely grateful for this amazing opportunity and hope that my contribution will go some way to helping realize this very worthwhile project.

去年の年末にペーパークラフト関係の友達Baykiddeadに凄く面白いプロジェクトに参加しないかと招待された。
そのプロジェクトとは、アメリカ最大の無料スケートボード場を作るための資金を集めるグループアート展。
展示会のタイトルは「Shove It!」(「ショービット」)で、今年アイオワ州の州都デモインで開催する予定です。
僕の仕事はスケボとペーパークラフトの2点セットのデザイン。

スケボのためのイラストは初めてで、サイズと形は普段描くイラストと全然違うので結構大きなチャレンジだった。思ったより時間が掛かったがどうにか締め切りまで2作を完成させた。
今週Baykiddeadはスケボのデザインを5枚披露しました。(上の写真)
僕のデザインのタイトルは「False Idol」(偶像)で、いつも通りのオカルトなイメージです。

Shove It!はデモインのPolk County Heritage Galleryで6月7日から開催される予定。参加アーティストなどの詳しい情報はこちら専用Facebookページもあります。

この凄いプロジェクトに参加出来て本当に嬉しい。スケートボード場が実現されれば最高です。
