The PDF is done and has been sent to the manufacturer!

Hey everyone,

Here's our first real update since the funding ended. I spent the past couple of weeks heckling artists to submit their work and assembling the PDF to be printed. But after all that, it's done and sent!

 

 Look, we have a cover! 

 

Here are some work in progress shots and previews from our main artists (they're all finished in the book, but I've been posting these on Artastic's social media accounts):

 

 

81 new artists!

I'm excited to announce we have also included 81 artists + our main 12 artists = 93 artists total! :) Some pages were added, so there are now 84 pages. Lots of full page pieces!

Here are our new artists!

 

 

 

 

Next steps

Now it's waiting time for a proof. Once I check that and make sure it looks good, they can mass produce the book! Maybe we're a day or two behind, but hopefully all the padding from now until Dec 15 will be plenty to keep us on track. 

Also, in the coming weeks, I plan to make an official website for this project. There, you'll be able to find artists and all their links. If you happen to have ideas, send them my way! :'D

 

WIPs and art previews on social media

I've decided to keep the Kickstarter updates solely to notify you primarily on production status, because I know Kickstarter emails you and that can get annoying. ^^; However, I'll be posting stuff on Artastic's social media accounts. It's mostly be WIPs, previews, and fun photos of things (like when the book comes...). Follow us if you want some pretty art in your feed. :)

That's all for now. Thanks again for supporting this project!
