It’s a big week next week!! (The picture above isn’t relevant to anything, it’s just a context-free reflection of my fondest hopes and dreams.)
On Monday, my Roll-a-Sketch Kickstarter comes to an end. It has been a staggering success — nearly 250,000% funded as I write this! The potato salad guy got to 550,000% with his dumb thing, but I’m happy with this too.
If you would like a Roll-a-Sketch coloring book, or postcards, or a painting, or a custom mug — that’s a thing we’re offering too! — then you have a few days left. Thanks so much to those that have pledged (or ordered a sketch from me directly! Just a few more days for those, too.)
Then, later in the week, I’m heading to Indianapolis for Gen Con! I’ll be at Booth 641 along with a bunch of other pals! This will be YEAR THREE of attending Gen Con and I’m quite looking forward to it. It’s always really inspiring, walking around the floor and checking out all the cool, beautiful board games.
I keep meaning to try and set up some kind of event at Gen Con, a playtest or something, but nothing’s worked out yet. Maybe next year!!
Then…I come home to an ALL-NEW STUDIO!
For the last month or so, we’ve been working on getting a new studio built out in Westchester (in southwest Los Angeles).
It’s a big move and it’s got me pretty nervous… But I’m really excited to see it all come together. I hope to have a studio-warming open house when we finally get all moved in! If you’re in the L.A. area, save the date for “Oh, geez, soon, I hope.”
And since moving is expensive, here is an IMPORTANT CAMPAIGN UPDATE: If anyone wants naming rights to the workshop tables in the new studio (complete with engraved plaque), I have just added that tier to the Kickstarter, in these few final days. We will refer to a workbench in the new studio by your name for ONE FULL YEAR.
This MAY be a webcomics first?? But I wouldn’t put anything past Andrew Hussie.
