The Bunny-Snail-Knight is the design I'm using for my special, exclusive Charter Member cards that I'll be sending out directly. What's a Charter Member, you ask? Well, anyone who has bought art, letter subscriptions, books, or helped with my hugely successful Kickstarter is eligible. This membership gives my ground-floor supporters a lifetime discount on art. If you are wondering how to become a part of this artistic juggernaut while its still pulling out of the station, visit my Patreon page at https://www.patreon.com/dsborden before December 31, 2017. After that, Charter Membership will be closed to new members forever.
