The Books Arrived!
The books arrived this morning! A skid of 21 boxes was dumped in the driveway, and I spent an hour carrying them in the house one at a time, and then again carrying them downstairs and adding two layers to the mountain of stock in the basement.
I felt a little trepidation cutting open the first crate to take a look as it's been a while since I've sent a book to the printer on my own and I was scared they'd look awful, or some glaring mistake I missed would be sticking out, but they turned out great.
The fuzzy photo doesn't do them justice.
I'm very pleased with my first print job from Marquis Livres.
Anyway, I am finally sending out the digital rewards today. The bonus comics and the Wahoo Morris Sketchbook took a lot longer to put together than planned. I also went down a bit of a nostalgic rabbit hole as I was going through my trunk full of art going back to Grade 9 looking for interesting things to include. Please let me know if you have any issues downloading the Digital content. I'm sharing with Dropbox links and I've had the odd person unable to download links from dropbox.
And, tomorrow I'm going to start signing books, sketching, and shipping rewards. I'm hoping I'll have most of them out the door by next Monday with the exception of the bigger commissions.
Once again, and not for the last time, THANK YOU for helping make this happen! - Craig
