An Artful Lift-off: A Offer of Help

Team Phoenicia is pleased that we have been getting help and support of people making donations and buying ad space. We appreciate it deeply and we are getting some, but we have a long, long ways to go and not much time.

Scott Elyard has been a supporter of Team Phoenicia for some time. All of you know him from his renderings of the simulated flight of The Wind at Dawn and the IIP that we have up on youtube. While not only a very good at renderings, he's also quite talented at old fashioned art, pen and paper. He approached the team with a generous offer:

I will provide, for these three donors, color pen-and-ink originals or my art of a subject of the recipient's choosing. Work will be on high-gloss paper 8.5"x11", done with RapidoGraph® pen and watercolor or non-cloogging inks, and I will assume the shipping costs. These commissions will be done by no later than the end of this November, 2009.

Team Phoenicia must be paid directly the $200 or more by the 14th of September for this offer to be valid. We'll arrange the details after the payment is cleared.
From here.

Examples of his work can be found on Coherent Lighthouse.

We may be able to get him to do some animations for you. However, that will have to be negotiated and it won't be cheap. Trust us. We know. However, having the graphics has helped us at Team Phoenicia with getting sponsors immensely. For those of you starting businesses, trust us, a snazzy presentation makes a world of difference. We'll see if we can torture Scott a bit. He's tentatively agreed. We're sorting out details.
