The idea for the project came about as a result of discussions with professionals including artists, musicians and gallerists.

"Cedric's work is exactly the kind of work to have as a multiple because he's always been conscious about how fine art will look in reproduction, and keeps that in mind when making something—in the best sense, " says Jarboe a musical collaborator, and DIY authority in her own field of music. "When you have an artist that has that kind of intimate knowledge and awareness of production processes, combined with his skill and conceptual ability, it's the golden combination that doesn't happen everyday".

For a 17-year veteran of various artistic processes, this project combines Cedric's love of drawing and painting, the fine detail of printmaking and the result of making  high-end production work well on exquisite fine art paper. The project page on the Kickstarter website features a short video of his painting process which includes intaglio techniques and drawing to produce fine detail on the painted images.

The resulting five images have been photographed with high-end camera technology to preserve as much of their original detail and texture. The cards are produced through an extremely fine-tuned digital lithographic process and quality-checked individually. The fine art prints are digital giclee prints, also meticulously examined in a two-pass process that includes the the eye of a Master Digital Printmaker and a sign-off from Cedric. Everything is produced on an archival fine art paper stock that preserves the fine texture and organic anomalies of each of these pictures.

"What I am interested in—ultimately—is making pictures that evoke a certain kind of contemplative response in the viewer, just as it does for me. When I was painting them, I kept asking myself if I would be drawn toward the final result. I realize it's not for everyone and that results may vary. So really, I make these pictures to find more people like me."

Cedric hopes to reach and develop an audience with a newer set of collectors that are usually young, generally professional and have an avid interest in the arts.
