Phase II For Munich Artists Playing Cards – Let’s Go to Haeppy Art

Phew!

We threw an official party for the Munich Artists Playing Cards yesterday at Einstein Kultur.  It was a gorgeous day yesterday and some very nice Munich Artists avoided the temptation to join Mother Nature and tromped down into the cellars of Einstein Kultur. (Who would believe we would have a summer day in the middle of October!)

I’m grateful that we had a sponsor for the cards and artists willing to come and build a sculpture using the clips created by Oliver Rennen.  I’m grateful that our two musicians played great music during the event and Elasse  did her magic (I will share her work once it shows up in my email.)

I’m grateful to the Einstein Kultur for letting us have the art happening in their space and for V who took care of all our technical requirements (She gave us some really cool lights, handled the music and the video installation.)

Haeppy Art

This weekend our playing cards will be for sale at Haeppy Art.   I will be having a select number of posters of playing cards also for sale.  The other artists who will be showing their art at Haeppy art can be found on this blog post.

If you have the desire to own a pack of Party playing cards in a tin box is 18 Euro including tax.  here is what they look like with the box:

5 Days Left in Our First Munich Artists Kickstarter

Hi Munich Artists!  We are at 94% for our first Kickstarter.

This is a quick message to ask you to donate to our Kickstarter so we can reach our goal. This is our first time crowdfunding and we are so excited that you have been helping us out.    To reach 100% we need to sell a few more card decks or have someone pick our 150 Euro package which still have one card proof left.

I have a few more artists bios to share with you.  As I mentioned on our Munich Artists Card page, some very generous Munich Artists participated in our projects and have together created a wonderful deck.  I want to thank each and every artist for their hard work creating our first Munich Artists deck.  This is a collaborative project and each artist of the artists below has helped to make the deck a reality.

Alexandra Ritter
Angela Smets
Ines Seidl
Janine Voelkner
Elizabeth Hughes
Berit Opelt
Süyümbike Güvenç-Noris
Penelope Richardson
Isidora Romani
Angelica Zeller-Michaelson
Maximilian Lückenhaus
Brigitte Pruchnow
Emmy Horstkamp

If you would like to see the individual cards, here is a small slideshow of the deck:

NOTE:

To help artists,  will be trying three other crowdfunding projects before the end of the year. One through Generosity, one through Indegogo and another project on Kickstarter.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Süyümbike Güvenç-Noris Creates 4 Munich Artists Playing Cards

 

Munich Artists – Süyümbike Güvenç-Noris 

We are very lucky that Süyümbike Güvenç-Noris agreed to use her talents to make four Munich Artists playing cards.  I met Süyümbike Güvenç-Noris at a workshop in North Schwabing where she showed us the marbling technique used in Turkey (She was born in Istanbul.) Süyümbike joined Munich Artists at the Food Lover’s Market and 500 Artists Say Hello and now she is one of the first set of artists to create Munich Artists Playing Cards.

If you would like to see more work by this Munich based artist, please visit Suyumbike’s website.

We are so happy that people are supporting this project and would love for you to buy a deck of cards and join us at 500 Artists Play cards.  Funding starts at 30 Euro and gets you lots of good Karma points. If you are a performer, you can also attend by sharing your talents.  Email emmy at emmy at kyfio dot com and I will schedule you a time.

Munich Artists Playing Cards

To help us reach 100%, we added the printer proofs to our backer gifts. The proofs are the only ones we will have from the printer for this deck of cards.  We have 1 proof left if you are interested in this type of collectible.  (First proof of the first product by Munich Artists Playing Cards series will be worth something someday.)  I will post a photo of the remaining proof in our Kickstarter so you can see what is still available.

Do You Want to Be Happy? Kickstarter Video #3 – Lucky Lions

My daughter Anna and I went out and made this video for you.  She’s an artist and  I try and show her as much as possible through Munich Artists how artists can collaborate, work together and support each other.  She is supporting Munich Artists by participating in this video.

I think that every parent must help their child by supporting their passions and helping them be prepared for the “real world.”

When your daughter or son is an artist, this preparation includes not only the development of artistic skills but the basic understanding of marketing, sales, production and one’s own skill set and limitations.  Not everyone is good at sales. Not everyone is good at bookkeeping.  Not everyone is good at cleaning their studio. But, the basics skills can be taught and with practice, those skills will be strong enough to make the artist child a productive and independent artist adult.

My daughter (one her own) has begun to sell her drawings.  She asks me questions when she wants advice.  I don’t get involved unless I see she needs some assistance.  She is wading into the art world and I want to make sure she sees productive, collaborative adult artists working together  (even when things are not so easy.)

Each one of us has our own path to follow when it comes to art.  The Munich Artists Playing Cards are a way of celebrating our artistic diversity and symbolically showing that our art may be totally different from one another but that together we all fit snuggly into the Munich art scene.

Please Support our Kickstarter.

The different Backing options in German are on the website right here.

PS: Our 500 Artists Play Cards event will be on October 16th. You need to purchase a set of Party Cards. The easiest way to do this is through the Munich Artists Kickstarter.

Maximilian Lueckenhaus – Moons Over Munich – For Munich Artists Playing Cards

Today, I’m sharing the artwork created by Maximilian Lueckenhaus for our Munich Artists Playing Card Deck. (Check out the Kickstarter if you want to buy a deck of cards and some bonus gifts.)

One of the cool things about our Kickstarter is that if you pick the 80 Euro option, you can get a limited edition print of one card printed as a giclee A4 print PLUS a poster of all the cards so that you can enjoy all of our artwork on your wall!

We asked Maximilian a few questions so you can get to know this multi-talented artist (He makes music and comics too!)

  • Who are you? Just Maximilian Lückenhaus
  • Where are you from? Munich
  • What brought you to Munich? first time: my birthday, second time: science
  • What place in Munich fills you with joy or inspires you?
  • high rooftops, deep cellar clubs, and the Isar
  • How would you describe your work?graphical, mysterious, and open-minded
  • Who is your favorite artist? too many of them, such as Richard H Kirk, Marcel Duchamp, Rene Magritte, Lorenzo Mattotti, Max Klinger, Loriot, ..
  • What art supply are you never without? imagination

We presented Alexandra Ritter’s cards in this post so go check out her print work and then head over our Kickstarter and purchase a set of cards and support Munich Artists!

 

Kickstarter Video #2

Please watch this video.

Now, please go to our kickstarter and pick a backing option. If you need to read the options in German, you can read the backing options in German here.

We appreciate all your help with this project.  You will be getting the link for the Kickstarter tossed at you for 19 more days and then we meetup for the 500 Artists Play Cards event on October 16th.  Then I will gladly switch modes and talk about Munich Stories and all the wonderful illustrators and writers I’m working with right now.

A Message from Alexandra Ritter

Hi, I am Alexandra Ritter! After finishing my studies in arts, I came back to Munich, where I’ve been living for 4 years. The best thing about Munich is how close it is to the mountains. Hiking in the mountains is one of the most inspiring things for me and I love drawing them using ink and watercolours.
Besides mountains, I practice figure drawing and I love nearly all kinds of printing methods to produce artworks with an illustrating character which I used in my 4 artworks for the Munich Artists Playing Cards.
