Update #23

Rickshaw Cart - first batch is complete!

Update from Dave here ... I have just completed the first batch of the Rickshaw Cart design, and late last night recorded a video to tell you about it. (Bonus - the video contains a 'walkaround' view of our workshop, with three of my assistant printers working ...)

      Derp. Teach me to comment -before- watching the latest video in it's entirety. Sorry! *eyeroll*/*sigh* :P

      I'd love to see updates from both Jed and Dave (as time permits), long after the kickstarter ends. Both seem like genuinely awesome people, and it'd be a shame to lose track of them and what they're up to.

      Also, a couple of silly questions: First, I could have sworn it was mentioned in a video that they'd be selling either the woodblock prints and/or the giclees after the kickstarter ends? I can't seem to find it now though. If so, I won't feel too terrible about passing up on the bathhouse triptych for a friend, as I can pick it up in the new year once my wallet recovers. If not... :( Second question, is it possible for backers higher then the $10 mark to get that colouring book? Either as a very sweet bonus, or as a paid for add on? Thanks :)

      These videos are great and they are the highlight of my day! I will miss them when the kickstarter is over. I love the idea but I think it is the videos that truly won me over. Thanks for taking us on this journey with you!

      wonderful videos. Dave's passion for his art is moving and inspiring and his long vision is powerful. I am excited to be able to stay plugged in as you follow the project in the documentary format.

      I love these videos, it will be sad when the kickstarter ends and they eventually stop, but im glad to know that work will continue and that even when all this is done ill be able to keep adding to my collection of woodblock prints for many years to come.

      Yep I agree with all the above. This is a fantasstic collaboration and I look forward to each update as much as the finished pieces. Thank you very much.

      This is one of my favorite Kickstarters that I've backed to date. The updates are great, showing us how such a labor of love came to be.

      I also love the fun cartoon on the main page of explaining Kickstarter in both English and Japanese.

      I'm thinking of upping my pledge because I want more of the awesome art.

      Good stuff. And agree w/Joshua.

      I love Dave's videos... That one was great, thanks for making it!

      Thanks for the update! Wish I had enough money to purchase and frame all of them.

      Creator Kimberly on August 28, 2012

      You know, before I saw this project, I was not much of an art appreciator. I might like a design, but I wouldn't have thought of buying it, and I didn't really care whether it was printed this way or that, or viewed on the computer.

      This project, though, has shown me just how much value there is in giving each piece individual attention, by making it by hand, and the difference in quality is pretty big. I've checked out a lot of the Mokuhankan website, and by now I'd call myself a woodblock print connoisseur!
