I picked up my copies of "over there", the poster I designed for the Fringe Benefits and I'll be selling them in my store this Saturday, February 2nd, between 10-11am PST.
I have 25, total, but I won't be selling all of them. I'll be selling 15 on the second, keeping 5 for myself, friends and family. The other 5, I'll be randomly inserting with future orders.
My family and I returned from a holiday trip to visit family in Canada to our new house, close on it in October of last year, and it was a flooded mess. A pipe had bust while we were away, destroying all of the walls and floors upstairs. My work space is downstairs, as is my wife's(she is a fashion designer and has a lot of expensive, industrial sewing machines, not to mention giant rolls of fabric), the water just rained down from the floor above and ruined everything.
Movers have taken everything salvageable to storage and once the contractor gets a budget from our insurance, they can rip up all of the walls and floors, then start rebuilding. In the meantime, the wife and I have been trying to keep our spirits up and get whatever work done we can under the circumstances.
I'll be trying to raise some funds to cover whatever insurance doesn't... it looks like they will cover most all of the rebuilding, but personal and business losses are only covered up to a certain point.
So, I'm going to sell the Fringe posters at around market value to raise some cash. I looked on Ebay to try to get an idea what they are going for and then came down from that. I'll be selling them for $150 each with a sketch of your choice in the margin.
The remain 5 posters will be randomly inserted into an upcoming sale of a poster I'll be making specifically to raise funds to cover losses as well. That will be a timed release, on sale for 24 hours so everyone who wants a print and a shot at a free Fringe poster can get one .
Here's a peek at a potential sketch for the timed release:
