I really have not received it yet, I wasn't sure when you sent out the rewards with the prints, so I figured it might still be in the post! These things happen, any luck with the tracking #? I was trying to look and see if I gave you my work or home address, but can't figure out where to look. Thanks for following up with me!
Kickstarter is live! Take a look :)
Crystal, everything went out a few months ago, have you really not received it yet? I'm gonna see if I can dig out the receipts and get a tracking number for you, if not I'll be messaging you and i can send another package. I'm sorry you had issues but we'll fix it for sure, no worries!
Hi Horatiu, I have yet to receive my hardcover and print...do you have the tracking info? Would love to support the new book, but am hesitant until I get my first one!
Danielle, I just sent you a message. I'm not sure what happened to yours, the last batch was sent quite a while ago. Let me know and as I said I'll send you another one and get tracking info for the both of us. My sincerest apologies!
I have sent a few messages but haven't gotten any response. I have not yet received my awards and I know via the comments that some have. Will mine be sent soon?
There is only a handful of books left to go out, unfortunately because of sketches and getting the higher levels all separated and getting the one off prints done they are some of the last to go. I'm hoping by the end of next week the books should all be out and sent.
I'm gonna get started on building the mailing list for all the PDFs this weekend as well :)
Thank you for your patience, Im almost done sending everything out :)
any word on the pdf going out?
Ah, the print is what's held mine up! Can't wait to see the finished product, the ones that have been received have been received so well ;P
Any news on how far you've come to reaching the end of fulfilling your KS, Horatiu? :) The delay has been more than a year now, after all. :)
I never posted back but thank you. Wonderful stuff. Adds to my collection nicely.
Even if I havn't received the product yet, I am still looking forward to your next project, Horatiu. :)
No, pdf's have not gone out yet. I've been busting my butt trying to get the books out as soon as possible and trying to find the right packaging for the prints so I just haven't had time yet. As soon as everything is out and on it's way I'm going to sit down and start sending out all of the pdf books. It's just a matter of me not having enough time haha. But no worries, I should be getting to it asap. I only have one more round of books to send out and pack and all should be done. It's just been taking a while since I mostly have to do it at night after school and work.
John and Ryan, I am so glad you guys like the book! I'm glad I could deliver a quality product and I'm hoping to step my game up even more on the next project. Definitely learned a lot through this, both from a business and time management perspective, but also from a print perspective. A lot of trials and errors on this book led me to learn a lot about putting together the best product I can.
got the hardcover Saturday. Very nice work Horatiu! Almost don't want to remove the plastic :)
Horatiu, just got the book today, it looks spectacular! I did have a question about the pdf though, either I missed an email with instructions, or didn't receive it. I really don't want to destroy the hardcover, it's too beautiful. Is there any way to get it at this point?
Awesome! Can't wait to see the book!
Yes, they're in, and I've been packing them the past few nights. I'm shipping out the first wave tomorrow and getting more packing supplies so I can hopefully send out the rest as soon as I can. Everything should all be sent out by next week at the latest, it's just a matter of timing some runs to the post
Any word on the hardcover editions yet?
Hye Horatiu,I just got it this morning! It's a "magnifique" book!;oD Your french is good too!
Half the books are out and on their way already. All that's left are a number of hardcovers where the cover got messed up and the printer is redoing them. The envelopes and contents are all ready minus the books so the last part should be on it's way as soon as I have the books in hand :)
I just got mine in the mail today.
either for me. Nothing in the mail box. The boat had maybe sunken between States and France?:oc
I haven't gotten my book yet. Was wondering if you'd sent it.
Danielle, resending it now. Let me know if you get it, if not just shoot me a message with your address and I'll make note everything is up to date shipping wise :)
I didn't get the survey...are you able to resend?
It's surely lower than shipping to the rest of the world but don't know more...
To be completely honest I have no idea what the shipping rates are to canada. Is it a lot more than shipping in the continental u.s.?
Nice! Is Canada international? Because, if so, I forgot the extra 10$...
Just got it! It is finally happening!
Surveys sent! :)
@Horatiu: Thanks for the update! Does that mean that the surveys will be sent next week?
Everything should be out and in your hands by the end of january :)
Putting in overtime to ship everything out as quickly as I can. I'll also be contacting everyone abut the commissions as well as draw the winners of the commissions and get those done too.
Hoping to have this out to you guys post haste!
Thank you for all of the patience, and I'm sorry for the wait, a lot of lessons learned for sure from this. Thank you again and you should have the books in your hands with sketches shortly :)
Well, it's 2013, time for an update....
Have you got any updates for us, Horatiu? :) We are eagerly awaiting your comic books. :)
Did you get the proofs back?
Me too! Sorry for the lapse in time from my last update. But I am excited to start printing the books :)
Well I'd say that's pretty big news. That's great, and thanks for the update. Really looking forward to the book!
Book is done, sending out files for the test book today :)
Horatiu, how are things?
Wow. Just checked out your tumblr. Amazing stuff, man.
I have to admit, it's a bit of a tease to keep seeing all of the great work you are posting on your Tumblr, I'm looking forward to getting my copy!
Thank you so much for the support guys! I always meant for this to be a book about the art, something that is more than just panels, so I'm striving for the best quality, even if it takes me a little bit longer. I just finished 2 more pages yesterday so I'm feeling good about getting this done soon. It definetly has been a huuge learning experience, and I'm really trying to make this something I could truly be proud of. And in all honesty, this is the piece of work I am most proud of out of everything that I have done!
Horatiu, I hope everything is ok. Definitely take the time you need.
It's great that you are truly happy with how it's turning out, and I'm happy to be a part of your growing and learning experience. You've got great things ahead in your future. Wish I had a fraction of your artistic talent.
That sucks. I'm glad that you've marched on through, and that you've found a great way to vent that thanks to your art.
A little slower than anticipated. I couldn't have forseen some of the personal things going on that hurt my progress but after all of the bad stuff I'm finally back in the game. The book is mostly done, and I'm planning on cracking down next week to fully complete it.
Good news, it's gonna get extra pages of story, which I hope you guys will enjoy :)
If people are interested in a preview, I can give you guys a link to check it out. Trust me, I'm so anxious to get this done and in your hands, as well as my own. It's been my first project that I can say I'm fully happy with and excited for. A true growing experience as an artist and writer as well!
How's it coming along?
How exciting! Even if I don't end up winning a commission, it'll be great to see your finished works. :D
Great! Be sure to do an update with some of the new pages so we all get an email about it!
Plugging away at pages, got a few more in the basket! I'll keep you guys posted when it's done, so I can do the drawing for the commissions as well as email those who got commissions and start on those
