It's been about a week and a half since The Unselfie Project on Kickstarter launched and it is gaining momentum. Not only has it caught the attention of Philadelphia tech blog, Geekadelphia and weekly newspaper, The City Paper, I was interviewed about it for Italian art and design blog, L'identità aumentata. The Unselfie Project surpassed it's goal in the first six days of it's launch!
As pledges come in, I am seeing that not only are they coming from backers all over the United States but the rest of the world: Austria, France, Netherlands, Qatar, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Sweden, Turkey, Norway, Portugal, Italy, Denmark, Australia, Latvia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Canada, UK, Germany, Belgium...to name a few. The Unselfie Project has gone global! This is super exciting stuff and I am absolutely amazed about the response and attention that the project is getting.
I want to thank everyone, all over the world for their support of this endeavor. Thank you for spreading the word and backing The Unselfie Project. It is absolutely energizing and motivating for me and I am so proud of the success that is has garnered so far. There are 18 days left of the campaign. I'm excited to see how far and wide it reaches and am thrilled to begin drawing. The creative energy is flowing! Keep spreading the word and the Unselfie love. You are making it possible for me take back the art of the portrait one bad selfie at a time! THANK YOU!
