The Fulfillment Schedule: EVERYTHING you need to know about WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!

Hey guys, Lorenzo here, back to tell you how the production schedule will run from here until April. I know that many of you have never backed a Kickstarter before, so I'm going to go into quite a bit of detail around how it's going to work.

IMPORTANT NOTE! - If you're reading this in the week directly after the campaign ended, than please take a moment to CHECK THAT YOUR PAYMENT HAS GONE THROUGH. There are always a couple of backers whose banks decline the payment, but Kickstarter gives you a few days to get in contact with your bank and authorise the payment. Kickstarter will then attempt to take the payment again towards the end of this first week. If your payment is declined the second time you WON'T HAVE BEEN CHARGED, but that also means you will no longer be a backer and won't get your books.

I'll be receiving the full funds from Kickstarter in the next couple of weeks, at which point I'll send the 9,000 books to print , and I'll order the prints and all the packaging etc from the manufacturers. Once it all arrives at the warehouse I'll begin sending out the "surveys" (which will come to you via email from Kickstarter - it's basically a form asking for your delivery addresses etc).

IF YOU'RE GOING TO BE MOVING HOUSE WITHIN 16 WEEKS OF THE DATE YOU RECEIVE YOUR SURVEY, PLEASE DON'T FILL IT IN YET! Just wait until you have an address that you know the package can be delivered to for at least SIXTEEN weeks in a row, and send your survey then.

The surveys for the tiers will be emailed separately for each tier, as shown in the image below.

IMPORTANT: I'm going to send the books out one tier at a time, as detailed in the image below. What this means is that some of you will have your books earlier, while others will not receive their books until the end of APRIL. This will mean that you may well see people posting up pics on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook etc showing that their books have arrived, while yours may not come for a while, which I know is hard, but  I've delivered several massive Kickstarters before, and I ALWAYS deliver my campaigns 100% on time, something very few other creators do on Kickstarter. Staggering the delivery like this from lowest tiers to highest is the very best and fastest way to get this done. Taking a little longer to package those higher, heavier book packages is all done to ensure that everything is done PROPERLY and your books arrive SAFELY :)

I'm sorry I can't send all the packages out on the same date, but my team are committed to doing everything right, and that takes time. We want to personally package up each of your boxes, to make sure everything is perfect and safe for its journey to you. The packages will be sent out in batches of between 50 - 300+ a day, so if you see other people talking about receiving their books on twitter etc and you still haven't received yours, please don't worry.

Even if you think your package should have arrived, please wait until the END of APRIL 2020 for delivery. After then, if your package hasn't turned up, the fastest way to get it sorted is to drop me a direct message through Kickstarter or email me at and I'll get it sorted.

I'm not going to post another update until all the books are sent, BUT, if you want more tutorials and art while you wait for your books, just follow along with us on TWITTER, INSTAGRAM or our BLOG, for new stuff every day - SERIOUS AMOUNTS of FREE tutorials and resources coming for you throughout the rest of the year :)

Any questions, just let me know via a direct message on Kickstarter - I check my Kickstarter messages EVERY DAY, and respond to all messages within 36 hours :)
