Today is Christmas, right? I have no idea! Oh man, have I been busy. First off I want to thank everyone for ordering Christmas cards this year. I’ve never experienced so much positive feedback about any of my stuff before. It’s been pretty crazy, and I really can’t thank everyone enough for all of the re-tweets and links that were passed around. You guys are the best.
That said I want to super secret double thank all of the people whose orders may have gotten lost in the mail (Canada, I’m looking at you) or have shown up later than they would have liked. You folks were incredibly nice and patient with me, and I really appreciate it.
Along with the general problem of trying to pack and ship hundreds of orders, I also had some Pay-Pal issues. At one point my account was completely suspended for some reason. I never received an explanation, but it sure didn’t help get the job done. There were also some serious issues with the tracking and shipping sections of the Pay-Pal site, which is why almost nobody got a shipping confirmation from Pay-Pal. Other users had the same problem as well, so hopefully they will have this fixed before the next go-round.
Sorry to drop all this knowledge here, but I wanted to offer some explanation to everyone who experienced a hiccup with their order, and there was no great way to email everyone… Until now! That’s right. I’m throwing an email party every other month. If you bought something in the last year or so, you’re already invited and will get first dibs (and discounts) on all the new stuff coming your way- shirts, cards, new prints, etc. That will also be the ONLY way to receive bonus sketches with your orders. Wait… Bonus sketches? WTF?
Well, if you ordered Christmas cards in the first two weeks or so, you probably got one of these little Inbred Elf watercolors that you see below. So if you like these little drawings and you want one of your very own join the email party (you can sign up on the side bar too) and I’ll send you an email the next time I have some bonkers-ass product that will blow your mind.
I think I ended up drawing about 248 elves in a two week period (around 104 color and 144 BnW.) If I sound like I’m bragging, it’s because I am. It was a crazy and exhausting exercise, but a lot of fun too.
HAVE A HOLIDAY!
