Special hat-tip to my very good friend Bill here: he reminded me while I wrote the script of the over-used (and implausible) trope of the android “calculating the odds” on the fly to the millionth decimal place.
We have new Fan Art by long-time friend of Artifice, Aikka. She riffed off my Black Butler quip from last time and reimagined the Artifice characters as characters from Kuroshitsuji. You totally need to check it out. (Maven is my favorite.)
We’re now at page 4 of my next webcomic, the superhero yaoi The Young Protectors. Please be sure to check that out too! (Commenters seem to think there’s something sexy about the close encounter on this new page. Are they right? You make the call!)
There’s still 18 days left in the Artifice Graphic Novel Print Drive campaign. And at $19,283 we’re super close to the next “bonus goal” target (at $20,000) where I release a video of my “bloopers” from making the Kickstarter video. (A blooper video my friends say shows “the real Alex”. Hmmmmmm.) Also, I’ve added a couple new rewards that make all four of the art prints available. If you haven’t pre-ordered your copy of the printed book yet and would like to get the art prints (or just laugh along with me during my bloopers), now would be a great time to pledge to the Kickstarter project.
***THIS IS A BONUS PAGE!***
And we’re now $45 towards the next bonus page!
Special thanks go out to long-time supporters Mordecai L. (who makes their 3rd donation to Artifice!) & Bernard S. (who makes their fifth donation to Artifice!) and a warm welcome and grateful bow go out to new supporters Nina D. & Molly G. for their generous donations over the last few days!
Big hugs go out to new friends of Artifice Natalia S. & Heidi C. and also to long-time friend of Artifice Tanya A. (who makes their tenth super-generous donation!) for their super generous $25 donations!
Thank you all so much!
So, we’re coming into the finish line here. Just a couple more pages. (Gosh!) As always, I really appreciate all your kind words and thoughtful insight in the comments. I’ve been buried under work for the past couple weeks and it’s always a huge bright spot to check in here to see what you have to say. I love y’all. Very much.
