I have a opportunity for all of you crazy artists out there. I’ve doing a Kickstarter in a few weeks for a clothing company I’ve dreamt up called RaveNectar. The mission it is to appeal to the human sense of wonder by creating loud/beautiful/obnoxious/vibrant/insane clothing.
We’ll be using a new printing technology called ‘Sublimation’ that allows printing on every inch of the shirt, in extremely saturated colors, eg: http://imgur.com/a/G2V90
The other side of the mission is to support artists. The shirts will all be original art from independent artists. 30% of profit goes straight to the you, which will be about $8 per shirt. Each artist will also have a detailed profile on the website with bio, gallery & links back to their own sites, Deviant profile, facebook page, etc.
Here’s the splash page that I created with some sample designs I grabbed off of DeviantArt and one of my own (on the right): http://ravenectar.com
If you’re interested in being a part of this or have any questions, let me know! I’m looking for just 3 artists & 3 designs for the launch.
– You can email designs/ideas/portfolios to jordan[AT]ravenectar.com
– Checkout the template for the shirt here: http://www.mediafire.com/?97nx838jr98wrac
– Get a feel for what kind of designs I’m looking for with my DeviantArt favorites: http://jetlej.deviantart.com/favourites/
@alexmayle, I’m planning to launch within 30-45 days. 2 weeks for designs, then prototypes, making a SICK video for the Kickstarter and other marketing strategies. I want to own this, and then post exactly what I did so others can too.
I’ll try to think of some cool designs and maybe sketch one up in my free time. I don’t have any tools to work with other than pen and pencil, and maybe some coloring pencils for the basic idea for the color schemes, but if I find the time and energy, I’d love to!
I’ve been wanting to see this shirt for a while. A black and white colored man wearing a suit with a tv for a head. He shoots himself in his 90s television set skull, unleashing an array of beautiful colors. Butterflies, grape vines, just an explosion of beautiful energy colors and figures.
I am a decent sketch artist but I have a tough time getting what I have in my head on paper. If anybody could draw this it would be super awesome and make for an incredible shirt.
@jordan, Cool, I’ll try and get a design to you in the two week window.
And like I said, if you need music for the kickstarter I’d be glad to help out. I know you’re making one for the Montreal community as well, so whatever you need just let me know.
Your inspiration…? ;)
