Sneak a peek!

Update

I am now merely 80 prints from finishing, sore and tired but extremely delighted to be nearly done. As the printing continues, I have now a good print and a good photo of all the panels and so you may, yes you may, sneak a peek at our Peace Puzzle. I am uploading a large image in 72dpi so make sure you click on the image and view at your heart's content (about 2000 pixels wide). Say it very quietly "yaaahoooooo" shhhhhh...
Peace Puzzle 2015 - 160 international artists

Remaining Tasks

As I finish printing I am also putting together the book, going faster now but there are only 24 good hours in any given day or I would be going faster yet. Oh, and I sleep too! Seriously, very close now to being completely finished. Here are the tasks remaining, each of them taking a wee bit longer to complete than to list:

-Finish printing (roughly 3 days)
-Finish image composite in high resolution and send to printshop to make posters (by weekend)
-Finish colophon/book and send to Create Space (Amazon) to proof and print (another week or soish)
-Stamp all prints with our official Peace Puzzle 2015 stamp (half day)
-Collate 160 sets (the other half)
-Wait wait wait for book and posters to arrive back to me (...)
-Mail out 160 neat packages plus the backers (non-artists) packages (roughly 4 days)
-Go hiking in the Sierras like John Muir and come back six months later enlightened, skinny and with a long beard (six months)
