Howdy, Comrades! Hope you have all been well. Today I would like you draw your attention to a very worthy Kickstarter campaign being run by a dear friend, Ms. Angela Sasser (aka AngelaSasser or Angelic-Shades). If you know Angela you are already aware that aside from being an exceptional artist she is also an inspiring, well-researched, and well-spoken advocate for following one's passion and living/working as an independent artist.
She's exploring Kickstarter as a vehicle for pursuing specific projects and, as with everything she tackles, she is going about it in a well-researched, systematic way AND sharing her experience will everyone so that they can benefit from her process. In this case she is pitching a series of beautiful Art Nouveau Birthstone watercolors. I hope you will check out her campaign; here's the LINK. Here are a few of Angela's images, either directly or indirectly related to this project;
Whether you decide to support Angela's campaign is, of course, up to you. That is the beauty and strength of the Kickstarter platform for artists; it can be a very valuable tool in helping to decide what types of projects to work on and where to focus our efforts.
Keep an eye on ~ AngelaSasser's post to get the full scoop her experiences with this project. I guarantee you'll pick up some useful info.
PS. I had the distinct pleasure of chatting with Angela a couple years ago. if you want to hear a bit about her art, her interests, and her obsession with Assassin's Creed, our chat is here...
PPS. If you are going to DRAGON CON, be sure to stop by and say 'Howdy' to Angela in the Artist's Alley!
