Good News For People Who Like Bad News

Although I am a modest, Modest Mouse fan, this post has nothing to do with them but the title. After pitching a few products to Deseret Book a couple of months ago, the verdict is in - No Righteous! 2. Wha wha. At least not now, perhaps in the future when more sales figures from Righteous! 1 come in and blah blah blah. The actual good news however is that DB IS keen on another product I pitched - The Book of Mormon Card Deck. So after finishing up the artwork over the last few weeks, the art is done and submitted, so the new card game should be on the shelves at Deseret Book by fall. Yay. - Also my wife and I had a new baby this week - Baby Greta. Yay again.

Oh, you're kidding! The artwork you did for Righteous 2 was so awesome! You made George Albert Smith look good. I'm sad it wasn't greenlit. :( The card deck looks awesome, though. I gotta get me one!

Sorry about the rejection (at present), when the first one sells out they'll be getting back to you. Congrats on the card game though, I'll have to look for it. I haven't seen the deck yet, but your work is consistently amazing, so it must be as well.

And MANY congratulations on the birth of your brand spankin' new baby girl. Somehow the birth of a baby always outshines other good news. What're ya gonna do?

Congrats on both fronts.

John wants you to teach him the game when he gets there. Looks great.

my favorite part in the Book of Mormon is when the Zombie with the crow calls the king of the Lamanites' bluff in that card game and he has to let all the nephites go.

great, great designs.
