      Zaraay- Thanks for letting us know it never reached you! We had the USPS lose a big shipment of ours in February and none of them were scanned. Some have been returned to us and some are just missing. Yours was a part of that shipment.
      I'll make sure yours goes out with our shipment today - thanks for your patience!

      @Josh - thanks for reaching out! Many of our $100 pledges are turning up as not-received so I'm guessing this is was a mistake by our fulfillment company. No worries - we'll make sure yours goes out in our next shipment tomorrow.

      I had sent a message a while back saying I had yet to receive any of my pledge items, and was informed that it would go out with the next shipment, but I still haven't seen anything. Is there any tracking information or anything that might help me track down what's happened to my shipment? I was really excited for this project, and pledged for two books after backing idrawcars and getting a wonderful product from that, but I'm pretty disappointed that I haven't seen anything yet.

      After receiving my copy, I'm happy with the final result. However, I have a few suggestions for future similar projects:

      There's no need for all the directory and Twitter feed information. Keep that on your website, where the information can be kept up to date, and can have links so it's more immediately accessible. In a book, it's just wasted space.

      Have example drawings on their own separate pages, perhaps with some minor amount of text and instruction. A couple times I was drawing on a page with one of the examples, which are better than my crappy drawings, and someone leaned over and said "Cool! Did you draw that?" and I have to admit, no, it came with the book. It's kind of a letdown for both me and them that the best drawing on the page isn't anything I did.

      The pages near the back with just some lines at top and blank areas below are kind of pointless. I can get a blank book with quality paper for much, much less. The whole reason one gets this book is for the "page less blank" blue guidelines to start one off. You wouldn't have to create new pages of this type, just multiply the ones you already have and fill the book out.

      In short, focus on what makes the book great, the blue guideline panels, perspective guides, and figures, and take out the rest.

      The parts that do work, though, the handy size, the pages with blue guidelines (I especially like the figures and heads), and the cool cover (I got the black version) are really sweet. I like carrying it around, and I have an "I Draw Comics" sticker on my laptop. I've had a couple people ask "do you?", which then leads to an opportunity to show them my art and talk comics. Fun stuff.

      Overall good job. A couple tweaks and it could be a fantastic resource that I'd buy over and over.
