#737: Payback Time

September 13, 2012

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #735: Closed Off

These are the unfinished pencils at the moment… I'm a little overwhelmed by school and freelance work at the moment.

I hope to ink the strip in the morning or afternoon and update the image. Until then, you get to see how my pencils have loosened up recently. You can also see how I've — very recently — started to use Illustrator to do some of the precise/tight stuff that I don't enjoy doing by hand. Drawing with a ruler is no fun. I still ink this stuff by hand, though, so the finished pages look consistent.

So yeah. See you again later today, perhaps? Or Monday.

UPDATE (9/13, 10am): Well, you guys seem happy enough with the pencils, it seems, so perhaps I'll save inking them for a week when I'm not quite so overwhelmed. Thanks for bearing with me, humoring my rough pencils, and — as always — for reading.

Say hello to Kurt and Jason

Sunday, April 23, 2017

Hello! The Multiplex 10 Kickstarter project ends in just over 14 days. As of this writing, we are a little north of $12,000, so just over 80% of our base goal. Judging from my last two Kickstarters, we’re doing very well. The final week should pick up considerably over this past week.

BUT don’t forget that we still have a milestone goal of Jason reviewing every Harry Potter movie if we make that $15,000 baseline goal on/before Wednesday, April 26th, though! (Plus Fantastic Beasts if we make it on/before Monday, April 24th. But that seems kind of unlikely at this point.) I thought that was a fun premise… but it’s up to the Gods of Kickstarter now.

I also officially added our first (and, at this point, only) STRETCH GOAL. At $20,000, we’ll be able to do a few extra things:

  • Smoother, 4K animation
  • 5.1 Surround Sound mix (courtesy sound designer Ian Vargo)
  • AND… a theatrical premiere at the Somerville Theatre here in Somerville, MA. (All backers at the Special Thanks level and up will get free admission… and, of course, transportation is not provided.)

Thanks so much for all your support. I’m exciting at how the Kickstarter project is coming together, and I can’t wait to get started on the animated short. (Full time, I mean. I’m already working on it!)

Pledge your support today! If you haven’t already!
