|Rock & Tin
|When you started posting Rock & Tin online in 2013, you posted “With no schedule, but posting as often as possible.” How did that work out?
|What was behind your choice of a simple method of visual storytelling for Rock & Tin?
|(Reminds me a little of Captain Underpants by Dave Pilkey.)

|What’s next for Rock & Tin
|Congrats on the full funding (and stretch goal) for Rock & Tin! I thought we could start the show off with discussing; What happens now?
|What sort of organization practices do you have for the fullfilment of the Kickstarter campaign?
