A big thank you to all of my Kickstarter backers!! Those who pledged $15 or more had the opportunity to be drawn into a team portrait of us all rocking out in space. How fun to have a galactic party!
I really appreciate how everyone came together to help me make my goal. And though this portrait took a total of 30 hours to complete, it was well worth me getting the time to energetically thank each person who contributed face by face.
(NOTE TO BACKERS: Please note that if backers did NOT successfully send me a particular photo by the deadline, they may not have been added OR they may be only included as one of the awesome astronauts rocking out in space. If backers WERE included, please note that only ONE person from your family may have been included as space was very, very limited. I spent 30+ hours on this and did the best I could based on the energy I had. I did my best to include characters from many of my webcomic colleagues, listing their webcomic after their name. If I missed you, it means that you did not send me an image to work with or I could not tell which webcomic belongs to you based on your Kickstarter name).
