Getting closer...

Posted by Matt Dixon (Creator)

Has it really been one month since the campaign ended? I guess time flies when you're having fun! I'm long overdue for an update.

All is going well. The prints and greeting cards are printed and with me, all the packing materials are ready to go, and a new print run of Transmissions was delivered to me last week. The only thing missing before I can start sketching and shipping out is the new book!

I've spent a wonderful month concentrating almost all of my time on my robot artwork. I've never been able to devote so many hours to a personal project in a single stretch and I have all of you to thank for that. It's incredibly satisfying. I might be enjoying myself a little too much as it's taking a longer than I'd hoped to get the artwork finished up, but it's really important to me that this work isn't rushed. I'm still on course to ship next month as planned.

If anyone outside the UK wants their book in time for Christmas, please send me a message and I'll try to prioritise your shipment in the despatch queue.

Enough waffle! Back to painting robots! Here's the latest finished art for the book to keep you going..!

 I'm wondering if this might make a more suitable cover than 'Echoes' which I've been using up until now. What do you think?

      Hey Chris. That's good news as I decided to run with this image as the cover of Transmissions 2! The book should be back from the printer this week. Obviously I can't sign or sketch in those books until they're here but everything else is ready to go so rewards should start to ship towards the end of this week. The sheer volume means it's probably going to take a couple of days to ferry them all down to the post office but UK backers should have their books in time for Christmas.

      very late to the party but agree that this would make an awesome cover.

      Was just wondering if you've got a ballpark date for delivery to UK based backers?

      I love this new picture but I love Echoes too and chose it as my print of choice, I think they would both make excellent covers but I think the Robot looking upwards on the new one could really work especially if he's looking at the title :)

      Nice update, thank you. New picture is really great! Gets my vote for the cover also. I strongly feel that art shouldn't be rushed so if you find yourself running close to the time limit, please don't push it. I'd rather have a beautiful book a little later than one compromised by schedules.

      But then I'm not hoping to give it away as a Christmas present, it's just for me!

      Looking forward to it, Matt! And, if I get a vote I'd go for this new piece as the cover.. it looks fantastic!
