More art on Patreon, plus custom map progress

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to take a quick moment to tell you about a new project I'm working on and how you can keep up with maps and gaming project in the future, plus an update about custom maps.

I now have a page on Patreon. Patreon is a site where you can pledge to support artists whose work you like. There are a ton of cool musicians, artists, and game designers on Patreon. I recommend you check it out. When you sign up to support an artist, your pledge is processed whenever the artist publishes a new work. Like Kickstarter, you get some perks based on your pledge level. You can always opt out of any particular artwork and adjust your pledge at any time. If you want to be the first to see what I'm working on and get exclusive stuff from me that might not be published anywhere else, Patreon is the place to go. If you want a sample, check out this free map and post-apocalyptic RPG.

I'll still likely use Kickstarter for larger publishing project (in fact, the next one is in the early planning stages now).

Also, a Seattle Doomsday Map update: there are still a few people who haven't received their custom maps. I'm working on them steadily, but progress is slow. If you're really regretting purchasing a custom piece of art, contact me and we can work it out. I don't want you to be unhappy.

Thanks again for your support and your time!

Sincerely,

Tony Dowler

Custom map update and a new project

Hello everybody!

Some folks have been asking, so it's time to give you all a little update on the custom maps, plus another interesting project I'm working on. I spent the weekend doing final touch ups on four of the custom maps, and they are now ready to go to their owners (and one is already delivered). Here are a few little previews:

I'm having a great time with these, but I'm a bit behind  at this stage. Custom maps are hard! I foolishly decided to modify my core technique and had to toss a couple of failed experiments. So the conclusion is--maps are getting done slowly but surely! Also, when they are all done, I will make a PDF of them and provide it to all backers.

Also, I'm working on another project. This doesn't have to do with  art or gaming, but it does involve ancient manuscripts, a daring smuggling operation, and the city of Timbuktu. I've been working this last month as the manager of a crowdfunding campaign for Timbuktu Libraries in Exile (http://igg.me/at/LibrariesInExile/). I'll let the project page tell the story:

In 2012, under threat from fundamentalist rebels, a team of archivists, librarians, and couriers evacuated an irreplaceable trove of manuscripts from Timbuktu at great personal risk. The manuscripts have been saved from immediate destruction, but the danger is not over. A massive archival effort is needed to protect this immense global heritage from loss.

We're raising funds to preserve these threatened manuscripts from loss. If this is of any interest to you, I urge you to check out the Indiegogo campaign (http://igg.me/at/LibrariesInExile/).

Thanks again for being the best bunch of backers in the world!

Sincerely,

Tony Dowler

We are Shipped! Plus a bonus PDF!
