    THE BUREAU (Ltd Edition of 100)

    - YOUR PERFORMANCE EVALUATION - Want a nice BUREAU rarity? We're offering a one-of-a-kind item that will be exclusive to this Kickstarter. You'll receive the PRINTED BOOK, the MUSIC, and the PDF. You will also receive a customized Performance Evaluation, written by me, assessing your work over the past year. A survey will be provided for you to indicate name, or name left blank, and an option to advocate on your own behalf for (fictionalized) work done over the year, if you so choose. This will be an opportunity for us to discuss goal planning, your adherence to the company's core mission, other humor. Each evaluation will be unique and numbered, and the printed book will be numbered to match. Expected return: 1-3 months to finish out the assessments and compile everything. Item will be on official Bureau letterhead with processing stamps and other indicators of authenticity. We appreciate your compliance on this matter. Limited to 100 employees.

    Includes:
    • PDF download of the book
    • Printed Book (88pgs) with MP3 (320kbps) download of the music
    • Performance Evaluation (each customized)
    • Numbered Title Plate (1-100)

    YOU DRAWN INTO THE BOOK

    To add to this one-time offer, you will get a Performance Review, AND you will be drawn into the final art of the story. There are a few significant crowd scenes in THE BUREAU, including THE AUDITORIUM, MORNING MEETING, and THE TRAIN. There are other scenes that might benefit from a person (perhaps yourself) staring out at the reader. I'll ask you to provide 2-3 images for reference, along with a short survey. The rendered art of you will be mixed into the panels, and will be either photorealistic if appropriate, or caricatured in a way similar to the art I did for THE POGOSTICK (with Al Columbia) or TEDDY. A Performance Evaluation will also be included, along with all the other reward items (Music, the Printed Book - which you'd then be included in - and PDF). Your action in the story might even be included in the Performance Evaluation that gets drafted. Limited to 15 Employees.

    Includes:
    • PDF download of the book
    • MP3 (320 kbps) download of the music
    • Printed Book (88 pgs, first printing)
    • A custom card in your copy, indicating your panel in the book
    • Performance Evaluation (each customized)
    • Your image included in the book itself - Welcome to the story!
