The thing we love most about Kickstarter is its ability to help bring a great idea into fruition—especially when it's in support of a local artisan. While the crowd-sourcing site is filled with hundreds of innovative ideas from around the world, we found our favorite NYC-based projects that take the concept of art and design to a whole new level. From portable paintings you can wear on your wrist to an iPhone app that delivers digital prints to your door, check out the creative ventures we can't wait to kickstart.
