Faces on the Ferry Kickstarter Campaign
Posted 9 months ago and submitted by Rachelle Meyer | Share link: http://illo.cc/76059

Faces on the Ferry is a multimedia illustration project that started in a tiny sketchbook on the NDSM ferry in early 2017. My concept has ambitiously expanded into making these miniature portraits into sets of seasonally distinguished silkscreen prints, and eventually showing these along with the film of the sketchbook as an art installation. I feel like it captures not only the area I live in (Amsterdam, specifically the NDSM in the North), but something about the special journey of the ferry and the various ways people quietly fill their time. I’ve already gotten a surprising amount of media attention, from drawing live on the evening news to being contacted by the transportation company to hang posters for the campaign on the seven ferry lines in the city. The Kickstarter runs until 23 June. Please have a look and sponsor me if you can!

I approached Rachelle last year with a handful of illustration and design tasks. The brief had a two-fold nature… the technical specifications were laid out quite firmly, and these were met with absolute precision. Design-wise, a few thoughts were passed on as guidance. This is where Rachelle really shines. She has taken this latter part, met expectations, and taken it further to become an enormously artistic and well-rounded deliverable. Her artistic interpretation added astounding value to the product. A rare cross between amazing illustration capability and technical delivery. Wow.
