Shipping Update: Over Halfway There!
about 3 years ago – Mon, Aug 03, 2020 at 10:58:22 PM

Hey, everyone--

I just wanted to give you a quick update on how things are going with shipping. I've got just about 100 orders left out of 300. I'm averaging about 10 orders per day (minus weekends), so it looks like it will be about two more weeks before the majority of the orders will be out the door. 

Books and artwork being readied to ship.

It takes about 5 hours a day to ready a batch to take to the Post Office, in part because I'm drawing a sketch in every single book, and on the packages themselves. I've got a process that makes this as efficient as I can, but there are only so many hours in a day!

A safely delivered parcel! (Thanks, JG!)
Some sketches inside the covers. (Thanks, Simone!)

However, I still have a backlog of commissions to complete, as well. There's still about 12 left to go, and I can only manage one or two per week while I'm also shipping books. So, I'm afraid if you're waiting on artwork, your order will be lagging behind a bit, at least until I get most of the other orders out the door. However, I promise you it will be worth the wait. I'm taking the time to put in the love and attention each piece deserves.

Here are some samples of the commissions I've completed most recently:

Skyline Redux (11"x14", ink & watercolor)
"Pissed and Armed"
"Office Ambush"
"Stop, Thief!"

If you're waiting on a commission, and you'd prefer to get your books sooner, please email me, and I'll arrange to get your books out ahead of time.

Thanks again for all your patience!



P.S. If you'd still like to reserve an ink drawing with your order, the currently updated catalogue is here: Email me if you see something you want to snag. However, be forewarned that since I'm currently shipping books, I'm choosing sketches to go out with each new batch, so the list of available sketches is shrinking rapidly. I update this page every day after I select artwork to go out with each new batch.

Reminder—Claim some art!

Hey, everyone—

Here's the updated catalogue of ink sketches. I'm taking reservations on a first come, first serve basis. If you see one you like, please message me (or email me at [email protected]) with the number of the one you want, and I'll reserve it for you. 

Here's what's available so far:



Shipping has commenced!

Hey, everyone--

I'm proud to announce that the first batch is now on it's way!

Over the weekend my wife and I processed orders, printed shipping labels, and stuffed envelopes for 32 out of the 294 total orders. 

Here's a sneak peek at what the process looked like:

Prepping orders.
Signing books!
Documenting the commissioned works.
Packaging up the commissioned art.
(Our cat decided to help, too!)
All the orders packaged and ready to go on Sunday evening.
Orders boxed up on the way out the door to the post office this morning.

It looks like we can average maybe 10 a day or so, though maybe that will go up as we develop our system and become a little more efficient. I'll be working in batches as I work on the remaining commissions, so it's probably going to take about a month or so to get through all 294 orders. I'll send you a tracking number through BackerKit when your order is in the mail.

I'd be delighted if you let me know when you recieve your books and artwork. I want to know if they arrive safely. (And please share on social media and tag me if you can!)

I'm looking forward to getting your books out to you. Thanks for your patience! 

Stay safe out there.


The Big Day is here!

Look what arrived today! The new PS books are in the house! (or in the driveway, at least...)  

SIX pallets worth of books!

Shipping will begin this week!

I've been plugging away at the commissions for the project as well. I've been emailing everyone individually as I complete them, but here's a look at some of my favorites so far...

I'll give you a head's up individually when your books (and artwork) are on their way.

Thanks again for all your patience and support! I could not have done this without you!

With gratitude,

Hey, folks—

Just popping in to share some great news. The advance copies of The Art of Paradigm Shift just arrived from the printer today and they look fantastic! 

I'm super excited to give you a sneak peek of it:

The rest of the books are now on their way to the port in Korea, and are estimated to arrive the first week of July. 

In the meantime, I'll be finishing up everyone's artwork. I'll share some of that with you as I go. And don't forget to reserve your ink sketch!

More soon,
