Update #22

Dagger Drawn Is Drawing to a Conclusion!

6 comments

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!

Update #21

Great Success for Daggers Drawn! Now to get your Reward!

7 comments

I would like to extend my sincere thanks to all the backers of our Daggers Drawn Book campaign! As you know it was a great success, allowing us to created a first class publication.

I have been hard at work assembling the book. It is currently planned to be 10 x 12 inches, 192 pages, with 108 pages of color. There will be approximately 250 cartoons and covers from The Economist as well as the names of over 1400 Kickstarter backers. 

As a supporter, you will get a collector's edition of Daggers Drawn in a specially designed hard slip case. We are expecting the book to be delivered from the printers by the end of April 2013.

Now some housekeeping... you will soon get a survey from Kickstarter that will request your mailing address and other pertinent questions.

More importantly you will get a second email requesting that you join Backerkit, a post-Kickstarter fulfillment program. This will help me to help you get your reward. Using Backerkit I will be able to manage the nearly1500 different orders while allowing you to track your items, make special requests etc. 

If you would sign up it would be a great help to me.

Once again, Thanks for the great support for Daggers Drawn.

Best

Kal


Update #20

Kal will paint your Caricature!

4 comments

With just a few hours left in our great Daggers Drawn campaign I wanted to create a special reward to see if we could reach our stretch goal of $100k. 

I am offering to paint an 8x11 caricature in watercolor of an individual. There are only 3 of these available. The price is $1000. If we sell all three we will surpass our stretch goal!

Thanks again to all of you for joining the Kal team.
