Incredible illustrator and designer, BUST contributor, and all around rad dude, Mike Perry, wants to create your dream space—he just needs a little of your help to make it happen. Perry just launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new project, named after his recent book of collected works, called Wondering Around Wandering. The project will be a three-month free (!!) community exhibition and event space brimming with workshops, screenings, open discussions, and more, all conducted by the man himself. A space like this is hard to come by in the big city, especially one that encourages creative discussions about art, design, and life, joined by super special secret guests along the way.
Some of the free workshops Perry will be offering include a type workshop and a drawing workshop where you can draw to your heart’s content and play games like exquisite corpse. There will also be a creativity workshop to help you get through those awful creative blocks and one to make your own zine with Mike and some pals—who knows, maybe you’ll come up with your own future mag; that’s how BUST began!
This very special space will provide a unique opportunity for artists, art lovers, and the creatively curious to freely explore the community, learn a lot, and get inspired. Oh, and did I mention donators to the Kickstarter, depending on their contributions, get to choose from an incredible selection of prizes if the campaign gets fully funded? Some goodies include Mike Perry zines, posters, t-shirts, books, original signed screen prints and paintings, a one-on-one drawing session, and even a slumber party! Wondering Around Wandering promises to be the coolest thing since sliced bread. What’re you waiting for? Head on over now to help make it happen, here, and be sure to take a peek at Mike's video for the project (featuring a couple of very cute dogs) while you're there!
Check out some of the sweet prizes you could get for donating, below.
