New stretch goals!

Posted by Gerben Valkema (Creator)

Hi everyone!

Now that we’ve unlocked the previous 5 stretch goals, it’s time for some fresh ones. This time, I want to focus on the actual book, let’s make that even more amazing. I’ve already upgraded the paper to an even better stock, but now, let’s put some more art in it! 

  • If we reach 8000 (that’s just around the corner), I will make another drawing to include in the book. Not an official Inktober drawing of course, let’s call it an ehm... Inkember drawing? Works for me. This drawing will only be included in the book and will not be posted on social media, so it’s only for you. 
  • At 9000, I will make another drawing for the book, and I will videotape the making of that illustration, from sketch to ink & color. This drawing will also not appear on social media, likewise for the taping, that too will only be accessible for backers. 

In the meantime, every one of you already made sure we flew past stretch goals 1-5. That means everybody who ordered a physical copy of the book will get 1) their book, 2) the set of postcards, 3) the sketchbook, 4) the signed art print, 5) the second signed art print, and 6) the sticker. Also, I’ll raffle off 5 preliminary sketches to 5 lucky backers. 

If we reach 150 backers, I’ll throw in another 5 preliminary sketches to raffle off. 

Besides announcing the new stretch goals, I would like to take a moment to thank you all. You are so amazing for backing this, it really warms my heart to see so many people helping out getting this book out there. I cannot put into words how much I am blown away by all of your support. Thank you all so much for joining, you are all awesome...! 

Like I said earlier: every time we hit a new stretch goal, everybody who backs -or already has backed- will get the new goodies, completely for free. That means you! Everybody benefits from more backers, so tell your friends to join in!
