Hello and thank you again!
Because we are just past halfway to the goal, I want to ask the obvious: if you can, double your pledge. If you can’t double your pledge, find one person to pledge the same as you. And one more thing: Kickstarter is more likely to feature projects with comments, so leave a comment and like this update. Thank you for everything. With your help, we won’t have to relaunch and can just do the project, but if we do relaunch, I hope I can count on your support again.

This artist and dynamo has been on tour for I’ve Got A Time Bomb for the past month. I am hoping I can go to Toronto and paint her despite her inability to sit still. And I hope it comes out at least as good as her own self portraits.
