LAST DAY !!

My Dear friends

Well, today is the LAST DAY of my project on Kickstarter and all I can say is that I'm just so overwhelmed by the generous support I've received from you all.

This year I have the priviliage of being the Artist Guest of Honor at GenCon, the largest Dungeons and Dragons type gaming con in the US. When I got the news, I thought it would be awesome to have an artbook collecting my work. I didn't really know how I was going to make it happen right off the bat. I knew I had a lot of art, that was a given. I decided to get the help of a pro graphic designer, Spence Rossman (spencerossman@comcast.net), and he's been incredible, professional, generous and creative. The book looks great!!!

One of the tough things about any "extra-cirricular" project is that it takes your time and it takes money to produce. I had little to spare of either. As a freelance illustrator, I'm hopping all the time on jobs, and for extra spice me and my girlfriend moved right in the middle of things. So it's been a crazy ride to say the least.

Then I heard about Kickstarter, and the idea of having a streamlined venue for raising the money with pre-orders and other rewards made it all seem possible. And in the end, YOU MADE IT ALL POSSIBLE!!!! with your love of art and your geneous hearts! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I just sent the files off to the printer and I'll let you know when the book is ready!
Thanks Again,
Tom
