a dull moment
It doesn't look like much... because it isn't.
Things feel a bit chaotic right now. From endless "breaking" news updates, app notifications, texts, emails, and daily robocalls. This isn't healthy. It isn't sustainable. We thought "What do people really need in a time like this?"
It didn't take long to find out...
Stephen Colbert asked (and 155,000 people seemed to agree) so we answered. Introducing "a dull moment."
It's a remarkably bland rectangle. That's it. Absolutely nothing about it is made to stand out. You'll likely forget you have it hanging on your wall. But if it catches your eye by mistake, you'll remember just how dull it is.
The color was inspired by Disney's "Go Away Green" It is a gray-green (and kinda bluish) shade, formulated to blend in well among almost anything. The color doesn’t make this print truly invisible, but it does make it really easy to ignore.
This 17" x 22" medium quality photo paper is as dull as the design itself. Not premium, but not cheap either. Hi-gloss? Nope. Too exciting. The dull train stops at a perfectly forgettable semi-gloss.
The art is dull. The impact it another story.
100% of the profit from every piece sold goes directly to three incredible charities. Full transparency. No catch. No gimmicks.
What are the charities?
Partners In Health: Vlogbrothers Support Maternal Health In Sierra Leone (Previously donated $11,000 through past TEKSTartist projects)
(First TEKSTartist Project donating to this charity)
I selected these charities because I've donated to them in the past, believe in their respective missions, and trust the people behind them. While other events or charities may have the current spotlight, these issues remain unsolved.
Can I request a different charity receives the money?
Absolutely. Just make a note at checkout when you place your order.
Why buy this, if I could just donate the full amount to charity?
This piece was created to provide a moment of levity in turbulent times, and spread the word about charities I believe are worth fighting for. If you're here, and you've read this far the piece has already succeeded as intended.
BUT... If you buy a print and hang it it the impact grows. This print gives you a tool, a reason to tell the story, an excuse to spread the word about the charities it helped.
Your print can be produced and shipped quickly, or you can opt to receive it once things calm down a bit out there.
Is this real?
Yes, this is 100% real. You will receive an actual print, as described above. You will also receive a copy of the receipt when the donation(s) have been made to charity.
a dull moment was everything I hoped it would be!
