Just a quick update to let you know that your books and pins are on the way! Yay!

It is such a wonderful joy to see so many familiar names on the shipping labels. I appreciate each and everyone of you for supporting my work. Thank you!


If you're one the few that hasn't filled out your Backerkit survey please do so I can get your pledges to you.


If you're not already apart of my newsletter, sign up here to stay in the loop about my next upcoming project, "Naiya and the Foxdragon", an illustrated novel coming to Kickstarter later this year.

Until our next project together, soon!

Pre-Orders & Surveys!
7 months ago – Wed, Mar 06, 2019 at 08:10:35 PM

Hi wonderful backers!

Things are running along smoothly and month ahead of schedule. Yay!

I've set things up with BackerKit so you should be expecting an email survey soon. This survey will allow you to be able to customize your add-ons as well as purchase more. There are a few limited edition pins remaining that you can grab through your survey as well as more books, prints etc.

I plan to begin shipping on Monday, the 11th, as many of the orders as I can. Any orders that are outstanding or require extra work I will move to after I get back from Emerald City Comic Con on Monday the 18th.

I've also opened up a pre-order store for a limited time if you have friends or family that didn't make it in for the live project this is a great place to get a book at a discount. **If you are a backer and would like any of the items in the pre-order store they will be available to you through your survey along with your pledge and you won't have to pay the additional base cost of shipping a separate package.

Thank you again for helping to make this book a reality! I look forward to getting them to you soon!

The Final 24 Hours!

We are in the home stretch and I want to send a heartfelt thank you to everyone that has backed this project so far. Thank you so very much!

It is incredibly rewarding to see so many excited to receive a book and pin of my work!

A few updates:

This morning I am sending off the files early for print. This is a bit abnormal for Kickstarter projects like this since I will not receive the Kickstarter funds until 2 weeks from now. I'm eager to get things started, to have my test prints in hand, and have put aside funds to do so just for you!

My Foxdragon illustrated Novel launches later this year in May here on Kickstarter so I want to be sure I have this project wrapped up promptly for you before we move onto the next thing!

I'll be setting up Backerkit to import your pledges and take any last minute add-on orders. This is the first time that I've used Backerkit but I've already been in touch with the awesome people there and feel great about using them to streamline the fulfillment process.

Thank you again and if you haven't already, be sure to share this project with your friends and family. A share goes a long way!

Have an awesome rest of your week!

I wanted to say thank you again for everyone that backed this project. It means the world to me that you are receiving a copy of my latest art book & pins.

As I progress through the fulfilment process I’ll be keeping you updated here. For the most part everything is already in motion for a smooth fulfillment process.

With Backerkit I will be opening up a pre-order page for you to add-on any last minute add-ons that you may have forgot while the campaign was live. I'll be setting that up this week and will let you know when the link is live.

Thank you again!

Have an awesome rest of your week!

100 Backers! 4K!
9 months ago – Thu, Jan 31, 2019 at 06:42:02 PM

We just passed the exciting milestone of 100 backers! And flew past 4k and are now moments away from 5k!

Thank you so very much for making this project such a success!

I've been working with my manufacturer on finalizing the pin designs and getting them ready to go. Here are their proofs as well as the card backing designs. I've decided to make these match last year's backing card design, but with an updated date. Your limited edition pins will be signed & numbered in gold on the front of the card, at the bottom.

Thank you again for sharing this project and have a great weekend!
