Dagger Drawn Is Drawing to a Conclusion!

Posted by Kevin Kallaugher (Creator)

Greetings Daggers Drawn Teammates!

I am excited to share that I am closing in on the deadline for sending our book off to press and she is looking terrific. She is an amazing 200 pages and a hefty 10x12 inches in size. One of the last big tasks to complete is the cover artwork... I attach a rough sketch from my drawing board for you see. 

The book will be off to the printers in a week and I am told that I can expect the printing to take 3-4 weeks. After that point, I will be getting your books, prints and originals packaged on their way to you!

If you haven't already, fill out your Kickstarter survey and please sign up with Bakerkit. It would be an enormous help for me as I manage to get your 1500 packages of goodies to you!. You will get a reminder email from them with the details within 24 hours.

On a final note, I recently gave a TEDx talk on cartooning... you can listen to it here.

Thanks again and Spread the word!

      Sorry for the confusion. Just wanted to be helpful. :)
      And I myself had to spend some time searching for the E-mail with the correct backer BackerKit address.

      Just got an email from KAL for the backerkit - very helpful, very easy and I didn't have to open a backerkit account as if I was a project creator - which was what I got when I clicked on the link below. Thank you!!

      Was the Backerkit part of the survey? If so I missed it.

      Oh! Nice Backer FAQ here.

      Should help organizing backer data, I suppose.

      I'm sorry, I must have missed the update/request to sign up for Bakerkit. What is it? Where do I sign up?
