Help an Artist (Me) Keep His Vision

Project: Indiegogo #TrespassersEye- Steampunk and Cthulhu Madness
Mood: A little more hopeful than usual
Media: Looper (again) :-)


I've been talking about my Indiegogo Project for a while now and I have finally been able to make it live. Frankly it took so long because of the reason I've started it, my wretched eye. I've recently come to the disturbing realization that I am not really using my left eye anymore. The vision has deteriorated so badly that apparently my body is acting like its no longer there. I don't look forward anymore, my head is constantly canted to the left. That has also led to neck aches and very stabby headaches in my right eye (the "good" one) because of its over use. *sigh* Time to get this surgery done. Anyway, on to the Project.

I've created some new sprig designs and some limited edition numbered pieces that can be purchased through the Indiegogo Project. The cost prices are the regular gallery rates, but rather than the usual 50% going to the gallery, its staying with me and going to my eye surgery.

Perk #1 - Andrew's White Chocolate Caramel Corn Recipe
What!! Just a caramel corn recipe you say, well. Has anyone ever threatened you if you didn't make a snack for them? Tried to bribe you for a recipe? Well here it is finally and you don't have to wait for me to make it for you or try to bully me for the recipe. (These will be mailed)
Cost - $5.00

Perk #2 - One-eyed Demon Bead
For the past 20 years I have made a special demon/gargoyle decoration that I have only used for myself and my son. You could only get this bead if you were a close friend, but I have made a special edition one-eyed demon for this fundraiser. Available in red, white or dark brown clay, 7/8 inch (22 mm) tall. Plus the Caramel Corn recipe too. :-) *This image is of the prototype beads, I was not happy with the detail and I'm re-tooling the mold for greater depth and detail of the final product - picture update soon.
