The Final Five

Well, this is it... the final five days of the Sam and Fuzzy kickstarter! I have been endlessly astonished by how well this project is gone. But I know everyone is really hoping we can hit some of those truly nuts stretch goals... so here is what I have come up with to help.

First of all... I have committed to more MONOLITHS! That means there are finally more hardcover omnibuses that come with an original illustration and personalized message in the inside. There are a few different kinds to choose from... black and white illustrations, spot-colour illustrations, and a random batch of cosplaying Fuzzys that I drew at Comic-Con. They've all been sold out until now, so we'll see how long these extra ones last!

Second... a few of the higher end tiers have been freed up as a result of people switching tiers. The original back cover Noosehead art is up for grabs, as is one of the completionist tiers that includes copies of my two long out-of-print minibooks.

And third... I have made a bunch of original marker illustrations! You can click the image below to view them all. If you see one you'd like to own, each one is available for a $100 pledge or pledge add-on. (Or, if you have backed at the Commissioner tier, you can get one of them as your included commission.) Just email me if you'd like to buy any of 'em.

Kickstarter Marker Originals! (Click to view 'em all at a larger size)

I am pretty happy with how all these turned out. I got to put a lot more time into them than I do with my usual sketch-off pieces, and it was nice to get to work with more characters and more colours!

And of course, if you like the the look of these drawings but would prefer to get a custom new one of a different idea... you can do exactly that, by nabbing the "COMMISSIONER" tier! It includes a drawing of this style, but drawn especially for you, featuring whatever characters and themes you'd like.

All right. Back to work for me. Thanks again, everyone, for all your support! We had one shot at making these books, and you are really turning them into something incredible.

Kickstarter Sketch-Off of Fate Tomorrow at Noon Pacific

We are in the final 7 days of the Sam and Fuzzy Omnibus kickstarter! My backers (who, typical of Sam and Fuzzy readers, are about the nicest bunch of fans a cartoonist could ask for,) suggested some pretty awesome, ambitious stretch goals and have been pushing hard to realize 'em. So I'm going to keep doing my part in the only way my cartoonist brain knows how... by drawing cool things to sell!

The COMMISSIONER (OF FATE?) tier includes a marker illustration of up to three Sam and Fuzzy characters. Now, the pledger can pick the characters and subject matter of the commission. But they can also have me select the characters and subject randomly using a die and this chart! The finished drawings look LIKE THESE:

So on Thursday (tomorrow), starting at 12 noon pacific time, I'm going to go ahead and draw a bunch of marker drawings using the chart, Sketch-Off style! You can watch me draw them on livestream, or just see me post the finished ones on twitter. And if anyone sees one they'd like to own, they can pledge the Commissioner of Fate tier and then request that drawing be their commission!

I'm not sure how many I can do (these drawings are a lot more complicated than my usual sketch-off fare), but I GUESS WE'LL FIND OUT!

The other original art news is I've added one more oversized original art tier. It's the back cover art for the Classic Omnibus, and it's a huge 11 x 17 piece that looks like THIS:

If you'd like to get it, you can nab it via the CLASSIC COLLECTOR tier.

All right! I know this is all a little more complicated than the way I usually sell my originals, but I really want to do my part to work towards that friggin' slipcase. Charge!

New Shirts! New Kickstarter Stretch Goals! NEW STUFF

Lots of exciting things happening today! First of all, I've got two new shirts on sale!

The long awaited ShipWrex (AKA: "The Oldest Profession") has arrived, as has the confusing and adorable Pokehog. If you want to get them RIGHT NOW, they are up for sale over at Topatoco! Alternately, you can get them as add-ons via the Kickstarter, and have them shipped with your Omnibus in December. Whichever option makes you the most happy is FINE WITH ME.

And speaking of the Kickstarter, I've lifted the curtain on our biggest stretch goals... new sections full of author commentary and concept art, and awesome-looking slipcases for the hardcover sets. How awesome-looking? THIS awesome-looking:

These are some big goals for some hefty additions, but as I have said a few times now, I have learned my lesson about underestimating the support of Sam and Fuzzy fans. There's still plenty of time to go, so let's see where this insane ride takes us!
