Health & Production Update

Hello friends and backers. As many of you have heard, Sean has suffered a severe cerebellar stroke, and is in the ICU recovering. As you may well imagine, this is a very scary and stressful situation for our family. The good news is, Sean is making incredible progress in his recovery. Every day he is more alert, stronger, and more coordinated. We feel very well supported by family (lots of folks here helping out right now) and friends and fans (all of your messages of support and love are almost overwhelming - in a good way). We have a long road ahead of us, but I am confident that Sean will be able to make a complete recovery from this. Many of you have asked how you can help. My sister-in-law has set up a gofundme, the link is here: https://www.gofundme.com/help-for-sean-aaberg-and-family

As far as what this means for the delivery of the Tarot Goblinko, we cannot be sure of our timeline at this time. Sean had completed 40% of the card artwork for the deck before this happened. He is expected to make a complete recovery, but we have been warned that it is a long recovery, to be thought of in terms of many months. As of now, the Tarot Goblinko is on hold indefinitely while we work on getting Sean back on his feet (and his markers) again. I know you all are pulling for him, and I thank you for your patience as we move forward through this.

      Get well soon! Don’t worry at all about delayed completion of the project, anyone who gives you shit should get kicked in the teeth.

      Sean is punk rock strong. The brain can be very plastic. The fact that Sean received fast and highly qualified medical attention will help in a speedy and efficient recovery . First few weeks will be the most difficult but realistically 3 to 6 months you will see phenomenal results . Depending on which area of the brains were affected different motor skills can be relearned. There are many stories of true punk rockers almost paying the ultimate price and coming back stronger and more interesting. People care about you and your family. They all wish you good health and happiness.

      I am one of them.

      Holy hell, he needs his rest, I'm okay with a delay in this case if he needs recovery time beyond the delivery deadline projected b6 you all

      I agree with @FoxMcGregor - I know that when Sean is ready to draw again he'll be back on this project. But until then just take care of family. Wishing him the best & speediest recovery.

      Thanks for the update, I know we appreciate it. Now, don't think about this any more. When and if Sean wants to get get back to the project then he can let us know then.
