What's new, you ask?

Well, we're working hard and making some excellent progress. Nikolas is writing like mad and Chris is drawing like crazy. Chris has also been doing a lot of driving. For vacation he traveled to Spain, rented a car and drove to Italy, retracing Hannibal's route. No kidding. This was, A) a much needed vacation, and B) a great opportunity to gather some photographic reference of the real world locations he'll be illustrating. Pretty hardcore, indeed.

Some of his videos are available here (Lake Trasimene, and a Hannibal exhibition in Barletta), with many more to come like Cannae, Col de la Traversette deep in the alps, Trebbia, museum visits, etc.

Also, there will be some Livestreaming sessions coming up where the artist will be drawing LIVE. Be sure to subscribe to the SmileTitans channel to stay on top of that.

The winner of the art draw was Thomas Sample of England! You have some original art coming your way. To enter any further art draws, sign up for the newsletter.

Until next time!

Hello!

We're off to the races and are hammering out the first stages of the project. So far, so good! We will have some 'behind the scenes' material soon. For those of you who don't want to miss out on anything, please sign up to the newsletter here:

As you've probably noticed, we've partnered with a company called Backerkit to help manage our orders. You can use them to upgrade your order as well. If you'd like to add an extra copy of the book, a copy of Tales of the Punic Wars, or our Hannibal t-shirt, just visit this link:

(Speaking of t-shirts, we'll be shipping them out early before Christmas of this year.)

Thanks, everyone!

Enjoy your summer!

It was down to the wire, but, we hit our goal and we'll have our printed edition of Tales of the Punic Wars available for sale right after the campaign is over. Of course, everyone will get the digital version for free, but, if you're like me nothing beats new book smell. All backers will get a notification once our campaign is finished (so keep your eyes peeled!) where you can add it to your pledge.

It's crunch time, so if you were ever going to tell a friend about this project do it now!

Oh, and while I have your attention, someone please get #MakeCarthageGreatAgain trending on Twitter with a link to the Kickstarter.  

I think that would be hilarious.  

Thanks, everyone!
