– Eeeeee! It is actually happening! Below is the update from RRParksCards – he has been a big part of this project; in fact, he has been the engine. Last year, this was an idea I had and wanted to do, but it was MUCH smaller, and did not have sketch cards. After much cajoling, he convinced me to try this and I’m incredibly happy I did! Lindsey Greyling (Leg Day Cards) did the stunning subset AND has been my morale support, because a project this size (well for me it is big), it was very scary. There is no turning back for me now, though! I LOVE doing this. Below is the update from Mr. Parks himself, and now this project from Long Dog Card, Leg Day Cards, and RRParksCards is on its way to the post office!
À bientôt!! Ingrid Hardy – Long Dog Cards
– Alrighty all you wonderful patient collectors (and even the not-so patience collectors) I’m just about done with product assembly and paperwork. ALL of the DRAGONS sets are now assembled and shrinkwrapped. In fact, that photo above (without the flames) is the stack of DRAGONS Master sets all packaged in their holographic stock packaging and shrinkwrapped. So what happens next? I’ll be processing out all the paperwork, mailing addresses, special requests, orders of original production art of Ingrid Hardy and Lindsey Greyling (Leg Day Cards) … and THEN comes the shipping labels. Everything I need is here and ready. So my PLAN is to do paperwork and labels all day tomorrow July 26th) and either tomorrow or the next morning (July 28th) will put ALL Kickstarter pledge packages in the mail so that EVERYTHING is mailed during the month of July … THIS month … NOW!
This DRAGONS project was such a fun card series to be part of along with Lindsey Greyling all under CAPTAIN Ingrid Hardy who has overseen everything about this trading card adventure. This is Ingrid’s first LARGE SCALE trading card series she’s producing … after publishing her three volume classic THE ART OF SKETCH CARDS book series. And she really included ALL the bells and whistles such as base set, subsets, lenticular 3D flip card, linocut card card, etching card, 3 different autograph cards, 3 different relic cards, 3 special ‘gold foil’ cards, holographic stock subset and more … INCLUDING a wonderful roster of DOZENS of talented sketch card artists. ALL of this, including 3 promo cards, can be found in the master sets (that picture above… again, without the fire). I hope you enjoy the cards!
If you have any questions about shipping you can direct those questions to me since I’m the one doing the shipping. My email is RRParksCARDS@yahoo.com … my Facebook is ‘Richard Parks’ … and if you DO need to message or email me a question be SURE to include your backer number and/or the name you used on Kickstarter so I can look up your information.
THESE are the cards we’ve been waiting for, and the are sooo worth it! From Arie Monroe, these are for the Dragons set, and they are d-d-d-done and have been shipped to RRParks! As soon as they arrive, packs will be put together and start shipping out.
Arie did a stunning job on these (as did ALL the artists! g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s work from everyone!!), my thanks go out to Arie and EVERYONE!
Thank you again for your patience! This will be an awesome set!
There *might* be another update tomorrow with another photo, but the end is near. One last package of cards is STILL on the way (supposedly has been shipped days ago, so it should arrive literally any minute). RRParks’ contribution to the set is almost done – one last thing to finish and then there it is.
Thank you for your patience on this set! it WILL ship this month, which means the packs will be on their way to you in less than two and a half weeks. Dragons is like a new recipe that is a bit more complex than what you’re used to cooking, and you are taking your time to get it right and make sure it tastes as good as it possibly can.
Merci! Will be updating every single time there is something to share! Gosh I cannot wait for this set…
Dragons is Ingrid Hardy’s (Long Dog Cards) project but I’m responsible for certain special card assemblies and shipping. So am posting an update here so everyone knows what’s what and when’s when 🙂
Am still waiting on a couple artists to get their sketch cards to us. WHILE I’m waiting I’m assembling the relic cards, autograph cards, linocut cards and etching cards. The linocut and etching cards are all completely assembled now. And this afternoon I completed assembling the RELIC cards with genuine artificial real faux dragon skin. And here’s a photo of ALL of the relic cards:
Every relic card is unique … no two relics exactly the same.
NEXT on my agenda is to finish the Dragons autograph cards … hopefully around the time I’m done with those cards the final sketch card artists’ packages will be arriving in the mail. THEN I’ll build the Dragons packaging, process the paperwork, and mail out all parcels. As per usual, will provide tracking numbers for each package.
Our original plan was to be shipping in June … well, I hadn’t planned on having ‘delayed artists’ and until the sketch cards are here I can’t collate and process everything. So we’ll be shipping in JULY. No need to message me asking if your parcel is mailed yet — you’ll get a tracking number from Richard when the parcel(s) are mailed. Just please note: I’m responsible for shipping and Ingrid isn’t.
For collectors in the US … ‘Happy Fourth of July’! And for collectors in England you can celebrate ‘Happy Treason Day, you bloody ungrateful colonists!’ 🙂
A brief update on the Dragons project! We are now officially a teensy bit late.
Still waiting on a couple of artists. Those cards should be here this week though, and the MINUTE they are here, RRParksCards (the partner-in-crime on this project) will be putting together the sets! I’m going to make a rough estimate that the sets could well ship out to you in two weeks or less.
My deeeeep apologies for this delay – stuff happens! I do hope you all understand. We are super-responsible, and want this set to be beautiful! Speaking of which, RRParks will be sharing a photo of his part of the set, and I cannot wait to see that.
So do stay tuned – tomorrow there will be visuals. The set and project really are nearly done! Please reach out to me OR to Richard Parks if you have ANY questions!
As of July 1st, 2023, this site is under construction at the same time as it will be used. I do not have the time to put things in suspension while they get finished – that’ll never happen 😄
I came to DreamHost because Hostgator was not working for me – it’s a great host, but the site was not working. Going on WordPress.com was a disaster, so now it is here! AALLLLL the links to everywhere for Long Dog Cards, PiP Podcast, Kickstarters, all that stuff will always be here, as usual, even if things are also updated elsewhere.
Please continue visiting as new art, sets, available come to fruition – the WILL be a store, it’s already nearly done, as well as my Etsy store – as a new page will be constructed over time with links to all the small publishers, resources to other resources… all that nifty stuff.
Thanks for visiting – I hope to have this spruced up soon!
