Hello good people!
13 Spade isn’t dead, promise!
Well, if you’re part of the crowd that ordered recently, you know that because you got your prints. But if you’re just passing through the site, looking at the blog and/or the Facebook page, I’d understand your conclusions.
These conclusions are flawed non the less, and I’m quite happy to say so.
The first reason explaining why there’s not a whole lot happening is that we had to put new print runs on hold. In July 2011, we were planning to release new art, but then something quite sad happened: we didn’t have the cash to finance them. We had the artists (I promise we still have all of the submission emails, and that we went through them), we had the pieces selected, but we couldn’t finance it. Needless to say, that was quite frustrating. Look at this poster and tell me you don’t want one?
The second reason why things seem to have slowed down is that we got really busy. Aside from 13 Spade, which is kind of an experimentation space, we also have our main job: Studio Ace of Spade. As the Studio got busier, we had to spend less time promoting 13 Spade, and working on it (this also meant putting #Project52 on hold, more infos on that over on the Studio Ace of Spade blog soon).
We’re sorry and frustrated to not be able to bring more novelty to 13 Spade right now. And we promise we’ll make that up to you soon.
