For those of you new to the project I started a collaboration with 25 other people through www.kickstarter.com, a platform for artists to fund their ideas. 25 people agreed to send me something they had collected, along with $25 to make them a unique piece of art just for them.
Here is a list of the “25 People, 25 Bucks, 25 pieces of Art” items that have been finished so far, please check back soon to see what is next!
