On the 23rd of this month, I'll be offering my first(hopefully annual) subscription service. The name of the group is "serigraphia discordia".
Fnord
There are 4 different tiers:
Fnord
1st tier, Polyfather/Polymother - 1 member, auctioned off on Ebay a couple days before the 23rd.

  • choice of one 12x36 original piece of art, drawn on watercolor paper with colored inks (I'm going to reserve the right to make a print version of the finished piece, also, it could wind up in a gallery for display)
  • 1 copy of every print put out in the 12 month period of the subscription
  • subscription exclusive print, at least 1
  • subscription exclusive print variant, at least 1
  • access to exclusive Facebook group, where group-specific votes will take place(Polyfather's votes count as triple) as well as sneak peeks at upcoming work

Fnord

Rather than receiving a large tube every couple months, you'll be sent prints as soon as I receive my copies. I also will not be sticking to any kind of monthly schedule. I do have a solo show coming in the subscription period as well as a couple gallery shows lined up... not to mention the stuff I plan on doing myself.
Fnord
There will be a surcharge of $200 for international subscribers to cover the extra shipping costs.
Fnord
I have some other things planned, but I want to list here only what I can promise.
Fnord
The sub-specific Facebook group is being kept small to keep things orderly and in an attempt to keep anything sneak peeks contained in the group. All content posted in that group is to be kept within the group. If anything posted there is found elsewhere without express permission, exclusive updates will cease immediately and the group will be used for voting and other group-related issues only.
Fnord
I hope this answers any and all questions about the subscription. I'm really excited about what's to come. I've even started work on the first sub-exclusive print, featuring my favorite comic strip duo. I'll see if I can't preview that before the 23rd, until then...

    1. I'd be okay with splitting it up into two payments... I'm really trying to avoid having to send out, "where is my money?" emails :)

  3. Hope there is no surcharge for canadian subscriptions
    Hope will you choose who gets a subscription

    1. Canadian surcharge would be smaller...USPS messed with the prices a bit, especially when it comes to insurance.

  4. My question is similar to Harvey's. I'm guessing there will be a large demand for these memberships. Will you give them to the first people who order? Or will you be choosing who receives the subscription?

    1. They will be sold online... I don't have time to take and review applications or something like that. I'm not even sure how I would judge something like that.

  5. hey mark, with the potential demand of the sub, will it be a free-for-all on the 23rd? will there be an announcement of sale time and its first-come first- serve? or will you do some kind of lottery?

    1. Some time on the 23rd, most likely right after the Ebay auction ends, I'll post a series of paypal links... just going down the tiers. After one sells out, I'll post the next link until they are all gone.

  6. A payment plan of half now and half sometime around June would be great, but I guess that will be something we will see on the site on the 23?

  7. Hey, any chance you might reward your loyal fans who purchased your timed release prints with a presale? : )

  10. Ryan, 1st tier is already up on Ebay. I'm surprised Mark hasn't updated this blog with the link or posted about it. You can find it here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=151257754155
