Most of this week has been dedicated to getting the little bits of rewards paraphernalia squared away. The small prints, large archival prints and sticker sheets are out of my hands now, joining the bookplates and buttons in production somewhere out there in the printing cloud.
Wanna see what the stickers look like? Check 'em below the text. I hope you like them! I spent way too long on them and it was weird to be drawing those characters again.
I have magnet set samples on the way for the second time. I am beginning to think that my original plan for the magnet sets is simply not physically possible to do in the way I had intended, so I may go back to the drawing board with those. I promise you awesome bunnies planet magnets either way.
Goats IV book production is just about done; I've seen all the pages and we have a few final tweaks to make -- add a sentence here, move a page over there, slap an ISBN barcode on the back. We'll almost certainly be finished by the weekend and I will be thrilled and delighted to get this bastard out the door.
I still have to get working on Goats Silver V and start writing the Good Hitler mini. I'm thinking those two things are going to take up almost the entire week next week, which is fine, beacuse I should have sufficient guest strippage to last until then. After that, it's back to drawing SFAM.
The good news is that I think the bulk of the production work is going to be finished by that point and the remaining work is in the hands of folks much more capable than I am. So, I remain optimistic, which is a really strange feeling.
Talk to you next week! Make sure you do something fun this weekend, like eat a hot dog or steal a car.
