Sample book has arrived!

 

 

The quality looks good. I'm actually quite impressed by how the binding looks. It got a little squished at the bottom since it was all alone on FedEx, but no worries for the rest of the books. They'll be coming in cartons... lol.

There are a couple tweaks I have to make (the binding sucked in some of the text, so I adjusted that), but otherwise it looks good to go. I've sent the money for the deposit, so the manufacturer can start production. 

Also, I decided it'd be better to pay the extra shipping fees to get 200 copies over by air, and have enough on hand to sell over the holiday season.

So this is where we are now...

 

 

 

Things that are coming up:

Artastic website

For people who missed the Kickstarter or want one for a friend, the art book will be on sale again once the site is up. :) Maybe there will be a sale on Black Friday...!

 

Reward distributions

Blizz Edition: I’m going to distribute the Boundless Skies PDF sometime in the middle of the month. The surprise is a physical little surprise, so you’ll get it when the art book ships!

Platinum & Premium: I’ve relayed the commission info to the artists, so this is to say they’re working on it. :)

 

Artist features over social media

I think I’ll start running some brief artist features over social media, to keep people in the loop and spread the word about Artastic. Thoughts? Ideas? Send them my way~ :'D

 

As always, I love suggestions! Feel free to comment or message me. :)

Have a great day!

      @ Sawaii Hitomi: I'm think some simple design, avatar + a couple of art pieces (maybe not ones in the book to make it more interesting) ^^ if you have ideas let me know~!
