"Rider Pride" Limited Edition Print
BONUS! Choose a FREE print from my collection as a thank-you for pre-purchasing this Rider Pride artwork!!!
I want to create the ultimate Rider Pride piece of art and give YOU and your fellow Rider fans the chance to be a part of it! This will be my most customizable piece to date, giving Rider fans many different ways to be a part of the artwork and customizing it just for them! My goal is to incorporate every historical moment, pay tribute to every Legend and celebrate every detail of what it means to be a part of Rider Nation and have RIDER PRIDE! Help me make this possible Rider Nation!
PERSONALIZATION (YOU'RE GOING TO DRAW ONE JUST FOR ME?)
Yes. Here are SEVERAL ways I can make this artwork just for you!
(1) YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES WALKING TO THE GAME! The first one is pretty simple. EVERYONE that purchases this print will have the opportunity to submit photos of themselves walking away from the camera while wearing their Rider gear. I will draw them into the artwork as if they were walking to the game. No exclusions. EVERYONE that supports this project WILL be in the artwork!
(2) YOUR NAMES ON JERSEYS! EVERYONE that purchases a print can ask for names to be added to the jerseys on up to 5 fans in the artwork they ordered. Once the prints are made, I will personally add your family names onto the backs of the fans in your print(s).
(3) YOUR FACE ON THE BIG SCREEN! If you support this project by purchasing an XL 24"x30" print, you can submit any photo you'd like and I will draw you onto the Jumbo Video Screen in the stadium! Yes, your artwork would be the only one that has YOU on the big screen! OR it could be a Game highlight of your choosing!
(4) Personalize it to YOUR OWN HISTORY! If you support this project by purchasing an XL 24"x30" print, you can ask me to draw any Rider player, game stats, game score and opponent on the appropriate areas of the jumbo tron video screen! You can make this GAME DAY any game you wish! It could be any of the Grey Cup games in our history, or maybe a Labour Day classic, or maybe a special game you shared with a loved one!
WHO AM I?
Hello fellow Rider fans! My name is Jeremy Bresciani. I am a professional sports artist with a love for Rider football. I grew up in Regina, in a large, hardcore Rider family and despite moving to Edmonton 30 years ago, and the Vancouver area 6 years ago, I am still, and ALWAYS WILL BE, a Rider Fan!
I have been drawing Rider pieces since 2010 with a focus on creating pieces that bring the fans to the forefront. All of my artwork is based on REAL fans. I have spent as much as 900 hours working on a single piece of art and have drawn as many as 504 real fans in full, recognizable detail, into a single piece of art.
WHAT IS THIS PROJECT?
I want to create the ultimate Rider Pride piece of art and give YOU and your fellow Rider fans the chance to be a part of it! This will be my most customizable piece to date, giving Rider fans many different ways to be a part of the artwork and personalizing it just for them! Ideally, I would like all of you to own a unique piece (a one-off just for you!) that is unlike any artwork your fellow Rider fan's may own. I will explain that in more detail below.
The first Rider piece of art I ever drew was titled "Three Generations of Pride". Although, I am very happy with that piece, I want to take the concept of "Game Day" to a new level. We have another Grey Cup, a new stadium and a lot of history I didn't touch on in my previous work. My goal is to incorporate every historical moment, pay tribute to every Legend and celebrate every detail of what it means to be a part of Rider Nation and have RIDER PRIDE! Help me make this possible Rider Nation!
AUTOGRAPHED BY RIDER LEGENDS!
I am honoured to say that Ray Elgaard, Jeff Fairholm, Don Narcisse, Bobby Jurasin, Roger Aldag, Tim McCray, Dale West, Al Ford and Dave "Robokicker" Ridgway will be signing 100 of the XL 24"x30" Personalized Limited Edition Prints! Anyone supporting this project by purchasing one of these prints will receive ALL 9 LEGEND AUTOGRAPHS on their print! GO RIDERS!!!!!
HOW LONG WILL THIS TAKE TO DRAW?
This piece will take me 3-6 months to draw and you will be updated on its progress every step of the way. I will do many Facebook Live feeds while I draw it and I will post photo updates on my Facebook page as well. You can opt in to receive these updates by e-mail, if you'd prefer.
HOW CAN YOU HELP ME?
This is a very large project to undertake. Having completed many even larger projects in the past for the Riders and many hockey teams, I know the time commitment that lay before me. This is the reason I set up this option to pre-purchase "Rider Pride" prints with the FREE BONUS Print thank-you gift! With a 2-year old son and a second baby on his or her way, I cannot afford the luxury of drawing for months on end without knowing if anyone is interested in purchasing the artwork or prints when I have completed it. If this campaign reaches its funding goal, I will be able to put the time into drawing this complex piece with the piece of mind that I can still support my family while I do so.
Please note that I am licensed by the Saskatchewan Roughriders which means a portion of all sales goes directly to the team.
Thank-you VERY MUCH Rider Nation! GO RIDERS!!!!!
