Here is the link for his "project" on Kickstarter. http://kck.st/1O0fiws

 

He lost his job a couple of weeks ago, and while still looking for work, he decided to take the extra time, and work up art to get published as a coloring book for adults. (Not "adult" that way. It's just more detailed than the usual children's level coloring books.)

 

His artist page is on Facebook, where you can see more updates of his work. www.facebook.com/J.W.GordonARTIST

 

Have a look. Support, share and help him reach his goal.

 

Thanks in advance.

Most writers and artists salivate for the moment when some wealthy benefactor will support their creativity.  That moment is as common as the average black kid earning a spot in the NBA.   But for some reason the myth persists.   The more successful in the modern age are the self-publishers.  Attempting to crowd-source money for someone who seems to have traced lines onto nature is pretty slim.  Sure, it's geometrically pleasing, but does it really show talent above high school?  While $5000 might make trailer life easier, it's hard to take seriously.

Maybe it should be adult in "that way". I bet you would get more funding.

Wow, GeorgeJetStoned, way to be insulting!

I'll have you know, hes never traced a thing in his life.

I also don't appreciate the trailer trash reference.

Maybe your should follow the old addage that "If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all."

Let me be clear. Constructive critique is welcome, but I'm not about to tolerate those who spew their vitriol from drinking the hateraid.

Well, it wont let me edit my posts, so I'll just add a new one.

 

Kickstarter only pays out if 100% of the goal is reached. So, many people could be contributing, but have to wait the whole 45 days to have the amount taken from their banks. I hate when that's happened to me, so why would we want that for anyone else?

Plus, if we manage to get say 90%, thats enough to publish most of the goal, so why not publish what we can?

 

So, we are transitioning to GoFundMe....... http://www.gofundme.com/zge6m78


Peace & much love

I've supported Kickstarters, and I ran one for a greenhouse.
The money pays through Amazon payments within hours of a successful campaign.
No make? No pay.

They kept around 4 percent for administrative.
We made the goal just under the line. As in 30 minutes.
