The Eye of the Storm
I'd planned on posting a Backer FAQ today but it seems as if the initial deluge of questions have subsided. This is wonderful, or not. I can't decide.
We've hit that inevitable part of every Kickstarter - the dreaded middle - where new backers and pledges start to slow a little. This is not to say we're not on goal, we are, but this is where you come in. It's time to start working Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, your friends, family, pets, sky-writing, ... paint yourself and run naked through the streets just get the attention of everyone so that we can do this!
Remember, the more money we raise, the more shorts we can produce.
Now, I have something rather unexpected. A new amazing piece of art. Both American and myself were in awe when this arrived in our inbox last night. It's just... well, look down.
The image is of Hilda Hewlett, an amazing pilot, instructor and entrepreneur. From Wikipedia:
Hilda Beatrice Hewlett was the first British aviatrix to earn a pilot's licence. She was also a successful early aviation entrepreneur. She created and ran the first flying school in the United Kingdom. She also created and managed a successful aircraft manufacturing business which produced more than 800 aeroplanes and employed up to 700 people.
As is the case with our other canvas posters, this will be $65 + $10 intl shipping. You can see a full-sized image here.
Below that is a concept of the art book everyone is keen on. I know I want one.
And finally, a thumbnail I expect you all to adopt to show you're a backer! (Use it everywhere!)
Going crazy at the keys,
