KickStarter incentive rewards are on their way. The signed first edition books (the $150 incentive reward) have been dropped off at the post office except for three that I’m going to deliver locally in person. I sent them book rate, so in some cases it may take up to a week for people to receive them depending on your location—and US Postal service willing.

Scan 6cropped72I have mat board on order for the people who selected the matted or framed prints (the $50 incentive and the $300 incentive). The piece I’ve chosen to print is from one of my favorite periods of Danny’s work: His graphite drawings. Dan did a great deal of these drawings, but very few have survived. Most of them were all in one collection that got destroyed. I chose this particular piece in part because it represents an uplifting period in Danny’s life, and because the graphite drawings are so rare. The original belongs to a collector in North Carolina who sent me a very high quality scan along with permission to reproduce the piece. What’s interesting about this drawing, is it was done on bright white paper that has ambered over time. The highlighting wasn’t visible until the paper aged. Aging has actually enhanced the effect of the art.

I’m hard at work on the first of the $500 incentive pieces (an original piece of my own artwork) and I’ll be picking-off those projects one at a time until they’re all done. The $1,500 incentives will require special handling, as it’s an original piece by Danny Allen. Only two were offered, one was checked off – but the other one was also chosen and paid for, but the donor neglected to check the box (if you will).
