  1. Instead of sleeping i spent a good hour or so cleaning up my tumblr so that all my inspiration posts will now be on a separate, inspiration-focused blog. You can follow it HERE. I’ve reblogged everything originally here to the new blog and have a long queue set up. I’ll be organizing the inspiration blog when it suits me…probably.

Vertebrae Anthology is now fully funded!!!
We’re at $12,091.
And it couldn’t have happened without the efforts and support of our amazing contributing artists, friends and family, as well as everyone who shared our page and contributed! To say that we’re happy and proud of the accomplishment is an understatement and we can’t thank all of you enough!
We can’t wait to update you all on the schedule for incentives and printing of the book, and upcoming events so stay tuned!
With that said, the Kickstarter has 24 hours left if you know someone who wanted to contribute to get a copy of the book, get some of our incentives, or just support it further!
Thank you all again for helping us all make this happen!
Best, Ash & Kate.

Just nine ours left of the kickstarter for those of you who still want a book!

Seven hours left before our campaign is officially over. If you’d like a book or another incentive be sure to back before times up!
