    He sent me a 'What Would Bob K Do?' sticker and included a bookmark type thing with this artwork on it. It quickly got claimed by my daughter but it's super cool! I'll have to get the book, too.

  4. When you say it's for adults, does that mean it's inappropriate for children? Or just intended for Adults? If it's not inappropriate, I'd buy it so my kids can begin to learn the lingo.

    It's not inappropriate at all. In fact, I read it to my 8 year old a few weeks ago... Little shit still didn't go to sleep.
     
  6. Awesome! My 4 kids will love to learn what daddy is talking about all the time...

  7. Awesome. Congratulations on the additional coverage @Big A! You may need to look at a second printing.
    Love my copy, the artwork is amazing.
     
  8. I have my copy at home, It's a good read.

  15. Holy smokes, I turn my back for a second and you guys start talking about me :rolleyes:

    Today pushed me over the top... I'm sold out! This is where I get all excited and print a bunch more... then they sit in my basement for the next 20 years :D

    Huge thanks. It's been a bunch of fun. And yes, you can read it to your kids (well, there's one reference they might not understand, but it's pretty safe overall). I didn't set out to make a kids book, it just kinda turned out looking like one.

  17. I've posted a lot of this in the Friday Art Show, but I'll throw a few things here to give ya an idea of the flavour (that's flavor for my American friends :D). I don't claim to have any sort of clue what I'm actually talking about, but I had some fun making it...

    Bathroom reading at its most dubious.

  19. I'm actually a little oversold right now, yesterday caught me by surprise (in a good way, thanks @Ryan) so I'm talking to the printer about getting a really short run printed just to cover the sales I have and maybe a few more. Might be a couple of weeks before I have more, but yes I'm going to start a back order list. Thanks Pete.

    @Big A

    How do we get on the BO list? I got interrupted yesterday with work (gasp!) and missed these before the HAMB members made them a collector's item. I need one!

  21. Late to the dance? I know the feeling, that's usually me.

    Head on over to aisforabone.com and sign up to receive emails from me. I'll keep you in the loop. It might be a few weeks before I can get any new copies.

    Looks plenty cool so I just signed up to your email list too.
    I think this book would look really great on the shelf next to my Don Montgomery books! :D

  26. Alrighty folks, it's official. I pulled the trigger and just ordered the second print run.

    The website is back up and running and ready to take orders, but the printing won't be done for a few weeks. I'll be shipping 'em as fast as I can get 'em, but I ain't no big box webstore it's just me.

    Those of you that signed up should've already received an email from me, check those spam folders.

    That's my hot rod fund I'm spending to get more printed, so order some up so I can get back to buying parts, pleeeeeaze! :D

    Thanks guys, and thanks again to @Ryan for letting this fly.
