...and with that last description, Spellbound's full art order is complete. John, Tom, Meg, and Lloyd would be proud *. Time to ping some artists and see if Alex tries to drown any of my kittens.

* This will make more sense in time, though a few of you might make the connection earlier.

Man.. if this was a few years in the future, I'd offer my psychology consulting services for those effected by "The Crafty Event".   :o

* Shakes head...

I think I get the reference, it's a little out there though so I'll keep it under my hat for the time being (you know... for fear of being exposed as a silly twat who overthinks everything).

It'll be fun to see who gets the reference in the finished piece. (This isn't the "WTHIT?!?" piece BTW - just the last one I put together, and the symmetry with the inspiration made me chuckle. As I mentioned to Alex, I was humming a particular theme song as I wrote the description, and it's oddly fitting for the whole of this project.)

Good - my theory about your reference doesn't relate at all to the "WTHIT" piece, but rather to the project as a whole (while also being linked to a specific art piece within).  It also relates to your state of mind at this stage of the project.  See what I meant about being a silly twat who overthinks everything?

Also very much appreciate your outline of the state of how things are done when putting together this kind of book (as well as the more specific state of Spellbound - especially with it not being a typical project (in so many ways)).

Many thanks, Sir Craftypants McCrafterion the FirstCraft (That word string just popped into my head. Best not enquire too closely)

The update is appreciated, and The Thirst has been slaked for the moment. Give it a few weeks and I may be forced to begin eye-twitching :)

[What is true is that today marks a major step forward for the project in that we've essentially locked the content in place and the rest of the process is mainly a matter of knocking down those dominos.

How big are these dominoes? Should we get a bulldozer  to help you out?

I can sympathise, but may I propose some kind of gentleman's agreement that none of us should post in this thread unless there's been an actual recent Spellbound update?  Otherwise, we run the risk of getting people excited over nothing...

Can I post back in two weeks to say "I agree"? ;)

For everyone's sanity, I'm going to lock this thread. We'll swing back around to this as soon as we can.

Don't worry - not abandoning the project, don't everyone freak out or anything - just keeping things from going sideways, again, in this space.

P.S. No, this is not license to start a new Spellbound thread. Leave it be for now. I'll post an update when I can.
