Hell faithful farmhands,
First off, I want to thank you for your patronage in joining me on this venture and for your patience. A lot of you have been asking, wondering, and wanting to know more about the annual sign-up incentives that I ran as a promo for joining me on The Farm. Outside of my already demanding schedule, running this Substack is both a joy and a challenge. So in efforts to keep you best informed I appreciate your patience as I take my time to properly roll out all these incentive goodies.
Everyone who was within the first 500 annual sign-ups should have received an email with instructions to fill out a Google Form so we can collect your info for fulfillment. Please fill out this form out ASAP. If you have missed or misplaced this email, please email my team at email@example.com so we can get that info from you.
As for an update. Below is a breakdown of each incentive type with notated updates on each.
First 500 Annual Subscribers: Free download of a digital copy of one of my early out-of-print comics. ADDED BONUS: Descender Enamel Pin & Mazebook Temporary Tattoo
So I already shared The Nobody and my Ashtray’s. Currently in discovery of what potential other out-print-comic(s) I want to share and scan for the future. Sourcing production for pin and and tattoo are underway.
First 200 Annual Subscribers: Name entered into a lottery to be one of 15 subscribers to get an hour long Zoom with me in my studio to ask me anything. ADDED BONUS: Descender Enamel Pin & Mazebook Temporary Tattoo.
I want to make the lottery as fair as possible. So I will be using a random generator to select the lucky 15. Once the winners are chosen you will be personally notified. I also want to explore a way to record the live AMA so all other subscribers can watch afterwards.
First 100 Annual Subscribers: Exclusive FISHFLIES Signed Mini-Comic/Ashcan (not available anywhere else outside my Substack). ADDED BONUS: Descender Enamel Pin & Mazebook Temporary Tattoo.
Figuring out how I want to execute and print the FISHFLIES ashcan. I want to make it special and give you all something special. The long story short is I am also still in the discovery stage regarding this.
First 50 Annual Subscribers: Name entered into a lottery to win one of 5 pieces of original art from FISHFLIES. ADDED BONUS: Descender Enamel Pin & Mazebook Temporary Tattoo.
Like with the Zoom call, I want to make this lottery for the first 50 is as fair as possible. Once the winners are chosen you will be notified personally.
First 25 Annual Subscribers: A quick headsketch of one of my creator owned characters of my choosing. ADDED BONUS: Descender Enamel Pin & Mazebook Temporary Tattoo
The fist 25 have been notified of their contribution. I am about halfway done with all the sketches. You will be notified before art is shipped.
If you all are curious what those sketches look like, here is a handful I recently wrapped up.
I hope this update is helpful for you all. Overall, rolling out incentives at this scale is a huge undertaking and I appreciate your patience as I get all my ducks in a row. The one guarantee I want to make to you all is that these incentives will be delivered by no later than a year from my launch date. So to be more concrete no later than August 31, 2022.
Thanks again for being with me on this journey! -Jeff
Thanks Jeff! Will the Fishflies ashcan be available for purchase to Substack subscribers?
Has anyone received an email, including the first 25? I thought I had a good chance of being one of them but I could be wrong. Regardless, this subtrack has been well worth it without the subscriber incentives. I just haven't seen an email at all regarding any of the incentives though.
