Update #11

Wow.

Comment

Ok, I'm seriously blown away. Thanks for all your giving! For all the posts, for all the support! thank you! You are making this possible.

I'm getting super excited about getting the new music + the "thank you" stuff to you! I am fully expecting to make ( and dare i say, exceed?) the goal and... Yeah, i'm stoked about it! 

As it goes, I now have  talented artists on board designing and developing the special artwork for the CD's. These will be super cool, wood-cut prints (which is a style of printing that is very hands on, gritty and consequently often used for bookplates) to decorate the handsome CD sleeves.  Oh, I can picture them now:) I've included a concept sketch for "fiction" that is somewhat the type of thing I'm talking about. 

Thank you for your complete participation, your giving to make this project a reality. We are just about there; we can make it:) tell everyone that this music et al is going to be super sweet. I mean, tell everyone!!

Thank you very much,

Travis O

    Undying appreciation AND the digital and physical copies of "Library Card" PLUS a custom reading room up-cycled coffeetable. I've been creating things out of old pallets lately, so if you want something unique, one-of-a-kind and handcrafted to fit into your living room or patio pick this reward and I will create a special table (or bench or bookshelf...) from old patina pallet wood. I can't ship these so I guess that means this reward is for local delivery only, but I may be coming your way so lemme know, we can maybe work it out.
