Rest in Plants pin Kickstarter almost over!

Posted by Arras Wiedorn (Creator)

I posted an update before about my new Kickstarter, but its almost over now! It's only at about 52% with just over a day to go, so it you get a chance, please consider checking it out, sharing it on social media, or maybe even pledging!

And now for something... A little different?

Hello!

It's not endangered birds, but it IS cool science-y art - my friend SEM (one of the artists of Losing Altitude!) and I are running another Kickstarter to fund some slightly creepy, yet educational enamel pins! If you like carnivorous plants and/or skulls, you might be in luck. Check it out here:

Besides pins, you can get some cool skull sketches from me, or even a gorgeous watercolor painting of a plant of your choice from SEM, certified botanical illustrator. We really hope you'll like this project!

Hello hello! It has been a while, but the website (including a store!) is finally live! 

http://www.endangeredartbooks.com

Currently I have stock available of books in hard and soft cover, playing cards, postcards, and acrylic charms (the thick-billed parrot and araripe manakin charms). Still working on digital books! 

What's with the name? You might notice that the website is not called Losing Altitude! This is because I hope to publish future conservation-themed collaborative art books (and other projects) under the name "Endangered Art Books." There will be some changes for future books (among other things, the books will be further along before any Kickstarter campaigns go live, I will be simplifying the writing style, artists will be paid a flat page rate in addition to royalties, I would like to use a fulfillment service...) but more on that when I'm closer to being ready to do another! In the future, I'm also hoping to be able to help other artists publish conservation art books and projects under the Endangered Art Books "label."

Also, you can now find Endangered Art Books on Twitter (@endangeredart) and YouTube (https://m.youtube.com/#/channel/UCckAjdjvlZPT1ojKAQYkP3A). If you have any questions for me - especially if you'd like to talk about conservation, endangered species, or you had a question for a zoologist - you can direct them there! (Yes, I'm planning to do video answers!) You can also email questions to info@endangeredartbooks.com if you'd like a private answer.

Hello everyone!

I thought you might all appreciate a little shipping update. I've got about 85% of the orders shipped out. There are a handful of backers who never filled out surveys, so if you haven't yet, please check on that! Other than that, if you haven't received your physical order within the next few weeks, please let me know!

As to everyone who has received their stuff, I'd love to see it! If you want to post pictures, you should tag me so I can see 'em! -->
