Risks and challenges

Where are we now?
Currently, I will be taking a short break before finishing up the last story arc in the webcomic. It should last another 10-15 episodes. The remaining time will be used to turn the comic into page format, fix some old paintings (some of them are nearly 2 years old) and polish the art to the best of my abilities. Which I couldn't do in a weekly upload schedule.

How many pages will the book have?
Purr.. A rough estimate of the page count would be... average 30(low estimate) panels per episode times amount of episodes which is around 70 divide by average panels per page... 5... (30 x 70)/5 = 420... But judging by how I tend to work... It will prolly hit 500 maybe 600? I don't know, mew'll see... its gonna take a while to finish but I'll get it done.

Printing
For printing, I will be working with a really experienced printer in Singapore so I will be able to make sure everything will come out purrfect!

Plans for the campaign and beyond
I will be using Kickstarter's updates tab as a way to document the entire creation process of the book and rewards. Things from the book cover and reward design, painting of the rewards, signing the bookplates to printing, packing and shipping of the rewards. And of course, this includes any errors/mistakes or delays that may pop up! I hope mew will join me on this adventure!
