Aspiring Muralists Fund

This campaign was created to help fund local artist Matt Ritter in his aspirations to do mural artwork for local businesses and property owners. All of the contributions made will go directly towards a 240 can set of quality paint that can be used to create and inspire imagery for local communities.
Matt Ritter is the Head Brewer and Artist for Catawba Island Brewing Company. Brewing up some of the regions finest craft beers and exceptionally professional labels and promotional posters. Being able to apply his creative skill with his passion for science has been a dream of his since he was young.
Matt grew up in Castalia, Ohio. At a young age he showed interests in the arts by sketching his favorite baseball players and comic book heroes on computer paper. When his dad found out his aspirations he bought him a long ream of paper, and has been sketching ever since.
His art took a more disciplined route when he was educated on the fundamentals of art at Margaretta High School by then art teacher Jon Eschels. Mr. Eschels taught Matt the basics of composition, design, color and discipline.
Since then Matt has been hard at work honing his skill. He has had several opportunites for mural projects and fine art projects. He completed a set of 12 paintings for a bakery in Norwalk, Ohio during the summer of 2011 with paintings ranging in size from 3foot by 3foot to 6foot by 9foot.  Considering he was using brushes it took him a great deal of time and he noticed that spray paint would make it much easier, efficient and would save on application costs.
He still enjoys to work on larger peices, just recently completing and selling a 7 foot by 9 foot painting of Johnny Cash using gathered acrylic wall paint on his own stretched canvas.
Recently he aquired a working studio in the heart of Downtown Port Clinton where he can often be found spending long nights and weekends trying to fine tune his skills.
Any contribution at all will help in some way to either fund his need for high quality spray paints to create murals, or even just a few bucks for encouragement.
The overall goal of this fundraiser is to earn enough to aquire a 240 can set of Molotow spray paint, some of the highest quality spray paint the industry has to offer.
Thanks in advance for any and all contributions.
Cheers!
