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 […]
Every now and then, I find a little time to do something that’s not Munchkin. When I do, it’s usually Dork Tower*. But very so often, I get to play in another sandbox entirely. Last year, I was flown to Brazil for Comic Con, and got to hang out with some of the folks behind Cool […]
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 […]
When are we officially allowed to talk about this? Surely the Internet has set a date. I *really* want to talk about this. — John Kovalic (@muskrat_john) December 18, 2015 Who’s at fault when a movie gets spoiled? My take: Opening weekend, the fault is 100% on the person (here simply known as “the Spoiler”) leaking the spoiler. […]
Star Wars Openings, Past: STAR WARS (1977) – I’d read about “Star Wars” crossing the Atlantic, on a 747, possibly listening to Fleetwood Mac on the god-awful earbuds you rented from the airlines for $4, back then. I was 14, and the summer holidays were upon us. We were returning Stateside to visit my grandparents, and drive across […]
