It still feels odd to make these updates with out Jim, but the art for the Bed Pillows has been found and are currently being inked by Sanny Folkesson https://www.patreon.com/sanny . Sanny http://www.furaffinity.net/view/15664765/ is helping out in a big way with the inking and finishes on some of the work that was incomplete. He will also lend his inking talent to a few of the last pages of the Skunkworks Collection and any other possible works outside those when the files are sent over.
Some of you may know that we were offered a Cameo opportunity in a movie last year. While only I could make it to the movie shoot, a lot of our artists sent material to be used in the movie. The Collected Skunkworks book and the Sheets where just some of the things we had hoped to get screen time in the movie. Unfortunately that was not to be the case, but thanks to Jim's family we where able to bring a few poster copies with us on to the set.
The movie we are slated to appear in is TED 2, which will be in theaters this May and June. Now that the first trailer has been out for two weeks we can finally start talking about it. We're still not sure if our scenes will be used, however our set up managed to get several minutes of screen time during the filming near the climax of the movie and are highly visible, assuming our scenes were not cut. Hopefully some of Jim's art makes it in as well.
We're working to get the Toys and the last comics all ready by the movie's release and are even trying to see about getting Skunkworks listed in Diamond's Previews comic catalog. This may be difficult since Diamond has a history of not being to friendly to furry comics, especially of adult nature, but if Diamond does consider listing the Skunkworks book we'll need a strong showing of at least 700 sales. Now 700 books sold may sound like a low number, but Anthro comics have always been a niche market, so be sure to keep a look out and spread the word.
However, this won't effect those of you who have already pre-orderd with your Kickstarter pledge. But for those of you that missed out on the kickstarter and would like to get any of the Skunkworks Pillows, Posters and the huge Collected book, they will be made available to you as well, and we will be happy for your support. All Profits go to Jims family.
