Inc Going Home

"At first, the planet seemed to move toward me rather slowly, but once I got close, it seemed to race at me at a startling rate. Clouds zipped past me, then mountains. I even clipped the peaks of ancient, towering coral."


The First Proofs Have Arrived

Our Printer, Mark from On The Mark printing http://www.onthemark.net/ has sent us the first proofs of the book. A proof is a test of what the final printing will look like before they pull the lever on printing all 1000 final copies. Overall, I'm really impressed with the quality, they're attention to detail has been really high, and the results are going to be awesome. Here's a little preview...

First, some of the pages...


Next, they sent a blank copy of the book itself to give an idea on how large and thick the book will be, as well as the binding details...


Here's the material for the premium edition...



And the test book open. I promise, the book you'll get will have stuff inside :)



On to the second proof, and then the final printing stage!

Inc Oasis Wall 3

I just can't stop painting images of Inc and Landis outside of the walls of the Oasis. Seems that the wall gets more massive every time I paint it :)

Story of Inc Kickstarter Ends In 24 Hours

Today's the day, last day before "The Story of Inc" Kickstarter ends. It's been a wild ride, and we thank everyone for participating. It's almost certain we're going to stay funded (baring some crazy calamity), so now the last day isn't about rushing to reach some monetary goal, the last day is about you and the book. We have worked hard to make the best book we know how. Something with a compelling story and great artwork. And we want as many people as possible to enjoy it.

So if you're still on the fence, consider one final time getting a copy of the book. If you love scifi stories. If you love robots and stark alien landscapes. Aliens and giant alien monolithic starships. And if you want a strong emotional story about a true odd couple that are both trying to find meaning in a crazy world. The book is $20 + shipping, and should be in your hands right before the Christmas holidays. We hope you'll join us on our final day, and again, thanks for watching, pledging and/or sharing this project.

Chapter 1 Of "The Story Of Inc"

Since we have reached our 100% goal, as promised, Chapter 1 of "The Story Of Inc". This is low res, 100dpi, jpg compressed, so expect the final book version to be cleaner and crisper, but this should give you a sneak peak on the direction of the story and the overall book formatting.

Thanks again to everyone who has contributed and allowed us to reach our goal, we're already half way to our first stretch goal, let's see if we can make it there (and beyond) before Tuesday Morning's closing!
