Exclusive Artifice Q&A Video Reached!
WOOT! We just cleared $30,000 (!!!) so that means I'll create a special video—just for Kickstarter backers—where I'll answer five of your most burning questions about Artifice!
(It also makes us one of the top 20 most funded comics projects in Kickstarter history—stunned WOOT! :D )
The deadline to submit your question (and vote on other questions) will be by end of day, April 15th. So if you haven't already done so
IMPORTANT LAST MINUTE BUSINESS
There are less than 56 hours remaining, so please make sure
- the credit card information you used to pledge is correct
- if you used a pre-paid card, you have at least $1 more than you pledged
- if you are located outside of the U.S. and chose a printed reward, you included the extra amount needed for additional shipping costs
The first two points are especially important. If you credit card is declined, not only will that cause problems with receiving your reward, but I also get charged a significant fee from Amazon. Which would make me sad. So please make sure that the credit card you used is current and, if it was a pre-paid card, that there is at least $1 extra in its "balance".
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE HAPPY WITH YOUR REWARD :)
I added a couple new rewards about a week ago that allow you to get ALL of the art prints sent to you. If that's something you'd like, you can login to your Kickstarter account and change your reward at any time.
PLEASE HELP ME GET THE WORD OUT THIS ONE LAST TIME
It's really important to me that everyone who wants to get a printed copy of Artifice (and the new Artifice bonus comic y'all just funded!) gets a chance to pledge. I don't want anyone to feel like they missed out because they heard about this too late. You've already done an amazing job in spreading the word about this Kickstarter project. But if you could let your friends know through reddit, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, etc. that there are only hours left to pledge, I would very much appreciate it!
NEXT BONUS GOALS
At $35,000, I'll commission another art print for you all to download as a high-res file (and for $100+/$150+/$175+/$250+/$450+ backers to choose to have sent to them as a physical print). I'm keeping it a "mystery" what it is, but it will be both safe for work and a little sexy. I think you'll like it. ;)
And if we hit $40,000, I'd be able to afford to commission a second Artifice bonus comic—a romantic flashback scene between Jeff and Deacon on Da Vinci 4 that would [SPOILER ALERT] also reveal how Jeff got the codes. Definitely be fun to make that!
THANK YOU ALL VERY, VERY MUCH
I suppose it goes without saying that the response to this project has far exceeded my wildest dreams. My friends keep sending me emails teasing me about how much I worried this project would never get funded at all.
But I want to say it: your amazing generosity has made what I was sure would be impossible possible. Your backing has already made Artifice—a comic with gay heroes!—one of the top twenty most funded comics in Kickstarter history. That's incredible! And I'd like to think it will make even more comics like Artifice possible. Which is of course what started me on this journey in the first place.
Thank you so much for helping me get the word out and for your generous backing. You all totally rock. :D
