Two books now available

The Tortoise and the Hare, as well as The 10%+ Addendum (second edition), are now available from my on-demand printer, Ka-Blam.

The 10%+ Addendum, a print-exclusive sequel to the main story arc 10%+, has been re-mastered into a new format, now with RGB coloring that more closely matches the way I originally drew it.

The Tortoise and the Hare is a new, compact tale from Nature of Nature’s Art. Drawn with traditional media, this is a retelling of the original fable by Aesop, in which the Tortoise and the Hare agree to a race. The tortoise proves to remain the victor, although, as with other NofNA stories, not in the way you might expect.

As with other on-demand titles, please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.

The age-old showdown returns.

    Recieved the books yesterday, and both are amazing! Sadly, The Tortoise and the Hare has some printing errors (nothing too severe, though).

    I ordered the Tortoise and the Hare and just received it yesterday as well! The traditional medium is even more beautiful than I thought it would be. I very much enjoyed the story, though I’m still trying to grasp the full implications of the styles they both developed. It was interesting how, narration-wise, it read out so simplistically just like the old fairy tale (albeit with a lot of large words). The deeper meanings only became apparent from the characters’ interactions as well as the addendum. I don’t really like how there has to BE an addendum, but from what I understand, the nature of styles means that they’re understood instinctively, without having to be explained, so having expositiondumps in-story would make no sense. One of the limitations of the medium, I guess.

    I also had printing errors with mine. Most of the pages I didn’t even notice a problem, but whenever the text was up against the outer edges, the furthest letters would be chopped in half. I guess Ka-Blam loves to eat margins.

    Thank you; I’m glad you enjoyed the books.

    I apologize for the printing errors. My first proof was okay, and my second proof was okay, and the book went on sale. But when I ordered 5 of the actual product, all of them had clipped margins. Shortly thereafter, I sent in new corrections in hopes of finally squashing the issue, but I have yet to receive it.

    When I can be sure that this next proof is OK, I will send both of you corrected books.

    I have Andrey’s address from his previous orders, but I do not have yours, InvaluableValue. Please send me your address in an e-mail.

    If anyone else has received clipped books, please let me know, and I will order a replacement. Remember to leave me your address.
