I wanna team up with your kid to make something really cool!
Your kid + my mad skills = beautiful art!
So, here is how it goes:
You: Order the #kidcollab on my website then, email me with your mailing address and a photo of your child.
Me: I send out a small block of Linoleum, which is what I use to carve my artwork. When you receive the block, notice where the "top" of the block is and give it and the sharpie to your child and ask him/her to draw a cool picture. Tell them to fill the space (not to make something tiny in the center) and not too complicated, then mail it back to me!
Here is "Flying Cat" and this is perfect for me to work with, nice thick lines, the space is filled and it's rad!
Then, I proceed to make Reduction Prints with your child's drawing. I carve and print and carve and print (approx 5 times) and then have a super amazing finished product that gets framed and sent back to you to put on your wall. I also set your child's name in type and the year so you could do this every year and start a killer collection! (see Nico's "Octonaut" print above and Olivia's "Flying Cat" below).
So when it is all finished, I mail out to you, 8 signed, limited edition prints (7 sleeved and ready to gift to people and 1 framed and ready to hang on the wall). I will also send the block back to you so you can see how it ended it up. I will take pictures and post on the interwebs (with your permission of course) and I hope to have a show when I have a good size series of #kidcollabs!
