Emerald CIty Comicon 2024

Just because everything happens at once, while finishing the kickstarter I've also been manning my table at Emerald City Comicon. Had a great 2 first days. If you're in the Seattle area, come out to say hi and get a book signed!

100% Funded!

We've reached our fundraising goal for the Megastructurese Kickstarter! Thanks to everyone who helped make this possible! Now let's create a buffer above the goal so a few last minute cancellations (which always happen) don't affect the outcome.

Emerald City Comicon 2024

I'll have my table at this year's Seattle Emerald City Comicon selling prints and books. I'll also have a promo copy of the Megastructures book if you're in the area and want to see it in person before pledging to the kickstarter, hope to see all you locals there! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/artofsoulburn/megastructures-the-visual-encyclopedia-book-2nd-printing

76% funded

2 weeks left in the Megastructures book kickstarter! We've done really well, but as the chart below shows, we're plateauing and we need another burst of pledges to reach the goal. I've managed to get an Ad with a major group that loves this kind of stuff, but it's going live Feb 29th, which will be 1 week before the end. I'd prefer not to leave the kickstarter to the last week to cross the goal line, so let's see what we can do before then.

I've added a few extra pledge levels, for example the ability to get 2 copies of the book plus bonus book for a reduced rate. If you've already pledged for the book, thank you very much, but if you have a friend who also loves this stuff, would appreciate dropping them a private message to see if they'd be interested in getting a copy too. The book will hopefully be out right before christmas, so a christmas present to a friend would also be great (take advantage of the double trouble rewards that include a discount). Anything you can do to spread the word would be fantastic.

Let's make this thing happen, we're so close, we just need that final push! Here's the link:

70% funded, Starship Hulls book interior

Really happy to see the Starship Hulls bonus book getting the love, far more people are buying the book + bonus book bundle than just getting the main book alone. Here's a sneak peak at the interior (Work In Progress). Let's get the kickstarter funded, https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/artofsoulburn/megastructures-the-visual-encyclopedia-book-2nd-printing

67% funded, we're 2/3rds there!

We've just hit the 2/3rds funded mark on the Megastructure book second printing kickstarter! Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this project, as a thanks for hitting the 67% mark, all books will ship with a free pdf copy so people can enjoy it both in physical and digital form. 

So now comes that last 33% to the all or nothing goal, and pledges have slowed down considerably (which is a very normal thing BTW after a big surge at the beginning). So please consider buying a copy of the book, or sharing the kickstarter with any friends you think may be interested in getting a copy of the book. And social media posts and reshares are always appreciated.

34% funded in 1 day!

Wow! We raised over $10k on day 1 of the new Megastructure Kickstarter. That's more money than we raised the first day of the original successful kickstarter, so that's a good sign :) Thanks to everyone for such a sign of support! As promised, here's a brand new piece of never before seen mega art, the Dyson Sphere, which will be featured in the bonus book. Let's keep it going, 34% funded, let's get to 100!
