As the swag for the 2015 Insane Charity Bike ride was ridiculously slow in getting to people (completely my fault, for reasons I’ve touched on here before), I wanted to double-down, and make sure the swag for the 2016 event got out faster than ever before.
And it looks like it’s on track to do just that!
The Army of Dorkness buttons and the Cloisonné pins are done, and with Fulfillment Gurus David now. The Munchkin Charity postcards are done, printed, and just waiting to be signed…and then I send those off to David, as well:
The last bit-o-swag is the Pat Rothfuss limerick mini-print, and that should go to press this week:
(Pat’s limerick will go on the obvious black space. Want to know what it is? Well, you shoulda backed the bike ride! KIDDING! There’ll still be a chance for you to see it – the uncolored version of the mini-print will go in the brand-new charity coloring book, which you can get by backing next year’s ride!)
Anyway, once the mini-prints come back from the printer, they go on to Pat to be signed, then I sign them, and then the 2016 swag is DONE!
Thank you all again for making the 2016 Insane Charity Bike Ride the most successful yet! And if production stays on target, it’ll be the quickest we’ve ever gotten swag pout to backers!
Gene Wilder’s passing Struck me quite a bit harder than I thought it would. So on the spur of the moment, I drew this: Other people seemed to like it, so that was very nice. I didn’t have time to finish it off, but I now sort of want to work this up for the new Charity […]
Today I finished inking the limited edition Insane Charity Bike Ride 2016 Munchkin Charity postcard (it lets you start a game of Munchkin at Level 3). Name? HIGHER PORPOISE! (I’d like to think Andrew Hackard has taught me well, when it comes to Munchkin Puns. Hopefully, this makes him proud. And “proud” is not a […]
Hey, all, This weekend, I’ll be a guest at Atlanta Game Expo/Southern Fried Game Expo, at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel & Convention Center. It’s a short trip for me, and my schedule’s light. But I’ll be there! Bring on the Chicken and Waffles! I’ll try and make myself available throughout the con, but at […]
A quick update: With nine days to go, I’m amazed and delighted to say that you guys have raised 94% of the fundraising goal for my Insane Charity Bike Ride 2015 that I sort of feared might be impossible to hit! Suffice to say, I’m pretty confident I’ll be wearing the duck, again. This has been a busy summer, […]
For various reasons, July was busy as hell. Unfortunately, that put me behind in training for the Insane Charity Bike Ride 2015. It also put me a month and a half behind plugging and hyping it. It’s approximately six weeks until the ride…and I’ve lost six weeks of training. I’m trying to catch up now, but […]
Maor Inktober! Plus: Munchkin Postcards! What would a pumpkin drink? Early-morning warm-up sketch! Daughter, Age 5, loves drawing with me, early in the mornings. I find this Daddy/Daughter Drawing Time one of the most delightful times of my day. Here’s what she drew, this morning, at the same time, by my side – Obi-Wan and Anakin on Tatooine: In […]
60 Miles via Duck! So, last Sunday, this happened: I did in fact bike 60 miles (and survive) with a duck on my head, and plush tentacles wrapped around my body like the loving embrace of a Great Old One. And you guys got together to raise an astonishing $13,500 for the CSA Fairshare coalition. (Overall, the […]
The Last Insane Charity Bike Ride Update: Tour De Duck 2014 – IT’S BIKE TIME! OK, guys – with four days to go until my 60-mile charity bike ride, we blew past $10,000 raised! This is, to put it bluntly, stupefying. And there’s still time for you to make a donation/pledge! The Bike the Barns ride raises critical […]
Insane Charity Bike Ride UPDATE 4! Nine Days to Go! HOLY CATS, you guys! We hit $7,500 raised for the Fair Share Coalition, thanks to a hugely generous donation from Joshua Berne. And then we hit $8,500! And now we’re on our way to $9,000! EDIT WE JUST PASSED $9,000!!! (Sept.6) And pledges are still coming in from around […]
