The Idle Thumbs 10th Anniversary Committee

Recommended Posts

There was some cool art of Jake posted in a thread!  I decided to start a fund to get it printed on canvas and shipped to the Idle Thumbs office.

 

The response was amazing, and we were able to raise enough money to get multiple canvases!

 

The first canvas purchase:

"Video Games," by Blambo.  This canvas arrived at the Thumbs office on 2014-01-28.

"Hot Cyber Scoops," by atte:

Because this is potentially happening, I'll definitely touch it up a little more.

 

This is a weird place :tommy: .

Use the spoiler tag you absolute tit. On a big monitor like the one I and surely Jake have the image is immediately visible upon opening the thread.

Oh, sorry, I forget about big monitors because I'm on a small laptop one 100% of the time.

Fixed.  Also, I have nice high-res copies of the artwork and I've submitted them to the canvas place for digital proofs of how the finished canvas will look.

 

If you'd like to donate, please let me know by Monday night so I can be sure to get your names on the "gift note" I'm sending.

Also, won't Jake know exactly what's going on from reading the LDVG thread? Shouldn't you go back and edit that out in case he hasn't seen it yet?

Go on then. But only because Sean is going to be so pissed off that he hasn't got anything

The thread is much better now, you utter and complete muppet. Hopefully Jake can resist the monumental urge to smash open the spoiler tag like yet another of his inevitable conquests.

 

My donation budget is exhausted for this month but if the funds are still short after the next pay day I'll throw some in. :tup:

wonder how much it would cost to put a brass nameplate on the frame that says "Jake Video Games Rodkin"

 

Edit: "nameplateusa.com" has it for about 35 bucks.

I thought they moved Idle Thumbs to Campo Santo.

 

Did they? I may be entirely out of the loop.

Also, I guess that makes the decision much easier.

I e-mailed last night, asking whether the 17th street address would be able to accept delivery of an item with large dimensions.

If you still want to chip in but have not PMed me, please PM me by Monday night.  There are at least 2 business days left before 

I receive the digital proof and they start making the canvas

 

and more days before

i write the gift note
(which will be sent separately).

 

 

I will make a post on Monday night (or when donations are close to covering the cost - whichever is first) with some details of where we are and any next steps.

Don't fret, Tycho.  The gift note will go to some outlandish combination of names to properly identify the recipient and allow for package reconciliation.  The order form doesn't allow for such specifics.

 

 

We're 95% pledged/funded for the cost of the item (including my own contribution)!  All in less than a day!  I am so IGN.com by this!!

As I've already placed the order, any amount we go over will end up going to a separate purchase.  I will happily elaborate on my plans for that later.

 

 

Please keep your fingers crossed that PayPal don't decide to freeze my account because these payments are "suspicious activity" or some bullshit.
