Wonderful first days!
Wow, thank you so much for the warm welcome to our Kickstarter campaign! We've had some generous donations already and I'm so happy to see some new and unfamiliar names alongside our dear friends and families taking an interest! Thanks ever so much to all of you for your generosity both in contributing and helping us spread the word about the project.
I just wanted to take this opportunity, as I'll be doing intermittently throughout our campaign, to give you a closer look at one of our incentive rewards. Here we have on of my limited edition screen prints which are available at the $75 level and above! This is one of four available designs, the other three of which I'll be uploading as the campaign goes on, so stay tuned! Each of these prints are derived from my original charcoal drawings and are hand printed by me. Numbers are limited, so if these look like your style I hope you'll snatch one up.
Thanks again for your support and interest! It's very important to me that you get something out of this besides my gratitude, however, and so I hope you'll take me up on these rewards. They're all things I have worked hard to produce over the years, in one way or another, and I'd love for this to be a mutually beneficial deal. I take your donations, word of mouth and interest very seriously. I know that many of us have our own projects to fund and ALL of us have far more pressing needs for our money. So even your passing the word on means a great deal to me, and I thank you very sincerely.
