Some drawings going out, plus book progress!
I've started cranking out character arts for the $100 and over pledgers. Many of these were drawn at Phoenix Comicon, and the rest I'll have to start drawing while on my couch watching bad movies. All of the $100-pledge folks should have theirs in the mail by tomorrow, with a few color ones from the $150 and $300 tiers in the mail as well. The color ones will, of course, take a little while longer to create than the grayscale ones.
I also received the ozalids for the SP! Book 1 reprint and DoA Book 1! These are the very rough print-outs of the books where I mostly ascertain whether pages are in the right order. I also got some blank dummy versions of the books so I can confirm the paper quality is what I want. I have approved all of these this morning, so the books should go into production shortly.
And now that the books are set in stone, I should have PDFs of them available soon as well.
UPDATE: Publisher tells me book production will finish on July 11.
