Magical Mystery Journey with Igor

Hello! My name is Igor Brezhnev. I am an artist, author, tinker and thinker. I tell stories and invent toys for your senses and mind to play with, to learn and experience something you have not experienced before.
I would like to invite you to come along on a magical mystery journey with me exploring perception, mind, inspiration, storytelling and life. With your patronage I will be able to make and share more art, write and publish new books and build large scale mind bending installations.

It has been nearly a year since I've started this Patreon thing. For the most part 2016 for me has been filled with commercial graphic design work and getting my book (www.dearestvoid.com) out there, so my Patreon didn't get much sharing or attention from from me other than posting rewards and an occasional update on the progress of promoting my book. 2017 is just around the corner and so here's my long winded vision for the next year.

I'm hoping in 2017, provided the(my) world doesn't end, to get to work on three distinct art projects.

Project One - work title "Geometric Landscapes":
Produce 10 to 20 large scale (6 feet by 3 feet or something quite close to that size) mixed media pieces mixing the incredibly complex geometric patterns with organic photographic and drawn landscapes. I have not had a chance to work with large pieces in a long while and feel it would be great show. Most of the proceeds from a show would get me materials for new projects and maybe even a stable live-in art studio. Also I'd like to use portions of the sales of these pieces to fund other creatives and support causes that I find of immense importance.

Project Two - work title "Motion Patterns":
A series of animated shorts with the geometric patterns and organic photographic and drawn images. I now have a computer capable of animation and video editing and look forward to doing those. Most likely a collaboration with ambient music makers. I'd like to offer these shorts for everyone's viewing and listening pleasure online and at events to rest their minds.

Project Three - work title "The New Labyrinth":
An interactive installation art piece "The New Labyrinth." Based on geometric patterns I've been playing with since 2012, the first iteration of this installation will be a kinesthetic and visual invitation to mindfully walk the geometric pattern - about 60 feet in diameter, with pressure sensors and LED lights, eventually adding auditory component. This one is really the project that I want to see happen, but it'll take a while and some money and access to land to complete.

Why do I want to make these projects?
I feel that I can contribute opportunities to rest and challenge people's minds with these pieces. I am also very interested in which ways these geometric patterns and colors affect our thought patterns.

What the money is going toward?
For the moment the money will help in getting materials, tools, workshop/studio time to build small scale prototype models of these artworks, as well as having support for those times when commercial work is thin to keep the momentum of creating art going.  

What are the rewards?
As a reward I'm sharing print ready PDF files of prints from the Imperfect Geometry series - one every month. I might add more rewards if there's more participation. Most likely I'll still work on promoting both of my books and writing more, so that work-in-progress will land on my patron-only feed. I'm also loading up the public post queue with artwork I have completed in the past decade for everyone to enjoy and maybe occasional piece of writing from my two books.

I also would like to invite you to participate in the process. Patreon is an amazing platform to engage the creators, ask questions about art and processes behind them. 

Thank you for you support!
