Just received my package today! (in Australia) :D I'm guessing I was one of the last few. Worth the wait though. The goodies were fantastic to open up :3
Received my book and other items today. Everything looks great. Love the sketch. Thanks again for having this kickstarter. Your packaging was excellent. Wish everyone was that consious about secure shipping. And the delay actually works out for me as this can be a nice fun present for my wife on x-mas. :)
@DianaSprinke, thank you for the update. It was just the amount of time between them, and hearing that others had received their books, that caused the worry.
@Keith and @Charles - Sorry guys! I have 12 books left to ship out and they are all books that need sketches in them! Sorry it's taking so long the sketching part is getting to me for no good reason. I'm hoping they'll go out before Thanksgiving.
@Charles, I'm wondering the same thing as the last update, over a month ago, said there were only 35 left to do.
When should I expect to receive my rewards package?
My copy arrived today and I absolutely love it! The packaging was wonderful, feeling like every time I looked at another aspect there was another toy or goodie hiding behind something. Seriously, you did a wonderful job on the whole thing, and that's with only having had a few spare minutes to leaf through the book.
Also- Yay! Postcard sketch! It's stuck to the fridge (in its plastic sleeve) using the Order of the Stick Kickstarter magnet. It just seemed appropriate somehow. :)
I was one of the lucky few who got a AWESOME! postcard with a hand drawn bunny on the back. I love it so much, and I can't help going AWWW at the stickers, the book and like everything else.
I'm SO glad I backed this project
Did I miss the PDF delivery?
Can we get an update, thanks.
:D :D :D :D :D :D So freakishly happy! Thank you for the adorable kitty sketch + goodies on top of ze amazing book! Everything was wrapped so carefully- arrived in perfect shape. :) I'm so happy to have been able to contribute to the adorable/beautiful/amazin' quirk that is your art. Thank you!
Note for 'Cat Stripe Green' - While walking around a book store, I saw some journals with stripes on them. I thought to myself, you know what would make this more interesting? If cats were hiding in those stripes.
I understand you.
Book arrived today - it looks great. Congratulations on producing the book you wanted to.
I am thrilled because mine just arrived and inside was an adorable bunny sketch! Thank you so much, I love everything about this project!
Got mine today! The book turned out wonderfully and I loved all the stickers and goodies. It was all packaged really well which is much appreciated! Congratulations on such a successful project!!
Mine arrived in Australia today. It's wonderful, and the extras were great. Thank you. Hope you've recovered!
By the way, cable knitting starting with A = Aran.
Got mine today! Absolutely gorgeous and fun! Thanks again!
Thanks for the update!
Crossing fingers! Very excited to see it.
Good things come to those who wait!
*Runs to check the mail*
Lol, I'm so slow. Please forgive me. I'm hoping to move alot of packages this week!
Eagerly checking mail everyday!
Woot!* Mine came today. It looks great! Thank you!
*(see what I did there)
Hey guys! I'm going to start shipping the packages on Wednesday this week. I had a few traveling issues and some family problems to work out. But things will start moving soon! Woooo! Some special surprises to finish befor package get shipped.
Kitties are too lazy, laying all over the packages.
I'm still waiting for my package as well. I hope I get it soon. I'm really looking forward to it!
Have the rewards begun to be shipped out? Haven't heard any update lately ... =/
Congratulations! Happy box arrival. Is there anywhere I can buy the Saiko and Lavender comic set? I couldn't afford it at the time but if you have any over I'd love to buy a set. Thanks.
Any information on what is happening? Also, will we be getting the Q/A update?
@Gwen - I'm hoping to have everything I need to send out the rewards to backers before the end of the month. The second sticker sheet is holding me up a little. =D Sorry about that.
Is there any update on estimated delivery dates for rewards?
@Keith - Sorry things have been a bit busy. I should have an update here soon. Trying to get the stickers sent off first before tackling the questions.
Any update on the replies to the questions?
Ask for 1,000 get about 10,000. I think people love your work,ALOT.
Congratulations! I am not shocked at all to see that you got so much money pledged. You deserve it. You have some of the cutest/best artwork I have ever seen! Hopefully this will inspire you to keep going (I would love to see more work from you in the future).
Hey, awesome! I'm happy to have pledged to the project! I really like it, and you really, really deserve all of this. Hopefully the book will do well in print as well.
So, some questions then.
As someone who hasn't really followed you before (sorry, sorry!), do you also do more "serious" work, or do you prefer to keep it light and fluffy, so to speak? Why do you think that is?
Also, what got your started on your art and career? Do you think there's any one clear thing that started it all, that you wouldn't be here without so to speak?
Finally, though it's probably a bit early to ask or say, are you planning on any other projects at the moment? And as a follow-up, would you use Kickstarter for further projects instead of more traditional publishing? Do you think there's any real downsides to crowdfunding as opposed to those more traditional means?
So, a few questions, would be great to see even one answered. They're probably a bit serious, sorry about that. And again, congratulations for this, I'm really happy to see an obvious talent succeed!
I am not sure if we were supposed to post questions on here yet but if so these were a few I came up with. I may have more post later on but I figured this could get things started. : 3
How did you get started selling your creative pun art and cute animals?
What inspires you most as well as on a day to day basis?
How many animals do you have an what are their names?
What is your process when you’re creating your art and comics?
What digital programs and non-digital media do you use?
What do you like to do in your free time?
What, if anything, are you a fan girl over?
Do you plan to continue what you’re doing now into the future or do you have other plans?
Oh man, look at you shooting up to 9k!!! go go go go 10 hours and counting down!
This is totally awesome! Congrats on the successful Kickstarter :D
Hope you reach 10K!
Over $8,000 and less than $700 to $9,000. Everyone get questions ready.
We can try for the standards like:
What artists influenced you the most?
What piece have you done that you hate so much you never want to see again?
or we can ask fun questions:
Ninja or Zombies?
Would you rather go barefoot or wear platform shoes?
They sky's the limit, so get your questions ready!
THERE YOU ARE!
I've been trying to find the artist who painted the Cat vomiting rainbow color kittens for a long time. I saw it in The Hideout years ago and asked the staff if they knew they artist and they said they'd "get back with me." Which did not happen. I'm looking forward to this art book!
Just saw your ad for this project on MSPA. Was already a backer, but that amused me to no end.
I've seen you at a few cons in Tx and I LOVE your artwork! The puking cat makes me giggle! I'm so glad I stumbled upon Kickstarter and your project tonight. ^_^
Just wanted to say that I really like your art. It's an interesting mix of strange, cute, and unique ideas. Can't wait to see the final art book. ^_^
I say siamese or popular sticker sets!!!
I have three posters of yours and I absolutely adore your art. I am happy I am able to back this and help with this awesome project! :D
Ok, after seeing all this stuff you're adding to this project, and how obviously passionate you are about this I just doubled my pledge. This stuff looks amazing, and if this is anything to go by, you will most defiantly succeed in future projects :D
Just got on board with this project. My wife and I both love cats. I'll suprise her with the book as a gift. I'll probably up my pledge before this is over to try to get a piece of original artwork.
As a cat owner and knitter, I have to say that I absolutely LOVE the knittens!
