The backgrounds are colored and the bios have been written. I'm hoping to get some of them verified today and all of them edited, I'll need to call around and get some dates of births and deaths and stuff as part of that, but that shouldn't be too bad. What's bad is that there's a chance I may need to redo a drawing because nobody agrees about which picture is of Samuel Percival and which is of his son, also Samuel Percival. That's pretty heartbreaking because it's one of my favorite drawings, but so it goes. Today I'm planning on getting all the drawings scanned and formatted to cards. Plastic cases have been ordered and yesterday I was given some paper samples. The whole thing should be compiled, hopefully tomorrow or Wednesday, and sent post haste to the printer.
The plan is to have them in some stores for sale by the weekend of the 15th, where they should also be for sale on Saturday the 15th at the Art Show at Northern, which I'll be at, selling goods. If you're a backer, this is place zero to come get your rewards. Later this week expect to see a poll sent out to backers about how to get these things to you. I do also plan to hold some sort of presentation and Q&A somewhere at some point, which will also be a place to pick up your rewards. Or you can just call or corner me around town.
In the meantime, start your week by enjoying this rainbow I snapped a photo of, on top of my scanner. The fellow on top is Nathaniel Crosby III.
