Hey guys, here is a long-overdue progress update. First, apologies to the remaining sixteen people I still owe rewards to. I've been holed up in the Sears Cave the last couple months painting painting painting and little tasks like "making sketches" and "putting stuff in the mail" keep getting pushed further and further back. If you need an update on your reward, send me a message, or better yet, e-mail me directly (brandonbird@gmail.com) since I don't seem to be getting Kickstarter notices in my e-mail. The good news is that all of that distracting painting work is finally starting to wrap up.

At the start of this project I said I would make ten finished paintings. I've shown you five (1, 2 & 3, 4, 5), and right now I have another eleven in various stages of completion (that's right, there will be 16 Sears paintings total). Seven are almost done and I'll be rolling them out over the next month. The final four I think I will hold back for the exhibit (the other thing I've been working on is booking a space for the show, but no news there just yet. I have a location-specific idea I'm trying to make work).

In the meantime, here are some more reward sketches for you to enjoy:

 P.S.: I have been going through old photos from the Sears Trip and sharing them on Instagram under the hashtag #SearsTrip2013.
