Silly question. Any info on the new one? Such as shipping. The lack of communication to subholders is frustrating. An email update would be nice.

This is what I'm talking about. I appreciate the update badassart. I would assume it would be easier to send out a mass email to subholders though, than to respond to each subholders email individually. I am aware this is going to take a while and I'm Ok with that, I'm along for the ride, but communication needs to be better. I didn't even know this was out until I heard it was available in the store.

Hey guys,

I'm making the rounds and getting stuff done. I just sent out a bulk email to subscribers with details.

We had two delays on printing. First, when the printer produced a giclee print (done for color matching with Laurent and to check everything out) they spotted something that looked a little off. Laurent reworked it and we went at it again.

After the first two colors of the background went down, the paper shrank some on the racks and it messed up registration. It probably could have been worked out by tuning the later colors but the results may have been questionable so the full run was trashed and we started again with new paper. Everything was racked in advance so the paper could acclimate to the temperature and humidity in the shop while another project was partially printed. This has worked out well and the printing is almost done. The guys in the print shop expect to ship these to me Wednesday or Thursday of next week. The subs all go first so they'll go out the first of the following week.

The woods are done separately so they're probably going to be a week later.

Thanks!

I believe that's a commission for the LD Fans Facebook group, not part of the MoT series.

That's correct. The next MOT piece is a Zeppelin. The mock-up has been done and it's really nice.

Here's a teaser:
