Hello and welcome to the Fifty Insects in Fifty Days project! My name is Will Eskridge and I am a contemporary animal artist residing in Athens, GA. I am inviting you to participate in this new art project to further connect with you and give you the opportunity to acquire exclusive art.
These paintings will only be available initially through my email list. They will not be available through outside galleries, etc. These paintings are available to you, my loyal collectors, first.
The Quick Rundown:
1. I will be making 50 original pieces of art for 50 days. One painting will be released each day for 50 days.
2. Each piece is just $50, but only for the day it is released. After that day, the price raises to $100.
3. The pieces will be sold exclusively through my email list. I will send an email with a purchase link daily at 9:00 a.m. EST. The first person to purchase gets it. (If you are already on my general email list, contact me and let me know you’d like to be added to the 50 Insects project)
4. That’s it! Easy and fun, subscribe here to join the fun! (Don’t forget to tick the “I Want Fifty Insects” checkbox before hitting “Submit”!)
1. How many pieces of art are you doing?
I will be making 50 total pieces. Each piece will focus on one insect. No insect will be repeated, i.e., this project will cover of 50 different insects.
2. Are they all just $50?
Each piece is $50 for the day it is released. After the day it is released, the price will then raise to $100 the next day at 12:00 a.m. I want to share my art in order to generate some buzz and excitement. Most of all, I am doing this because I want to start a relationship with you.
3. What size are the pieces?
Each piece measures 8 x 5.5 inches. The pieces are oil on wood panel. Each piece features a recessed hole on the back for easy hanging. You will receive an original, hand-painted, numbered, and signed piece of art. Depending on the insect, a piece may be vertical or horizontal.
4. Why insects?
60% of the DNA code of fruit flies and humans is identical. That means that most human genes and insect genes are the same and function very similarly. As my affinity with animals grows I am constantly amazed by our non-human cousins. Like my fifty eyes and fifty feathers projects, I want to explore the similarities as well as the differences among all animals.
5. Will you ship outside the U.S.?
I will do it if you will pay for shipping. Send me your address when you purchase a piece and I will send you an invoice. Shipping is included for U.S. addresses.
6. How do I pay?
I am accepting payment through Paypal. Let me know if you have another preference.
7. Awesome! I signed up, when does it start?
You will receive the first email with the first painting at 9:00 a.m. EST on September 17th, 2018.
8. Where can I see all of the art?
Right below! I will be posting below daily so you can watch the progress.
