Any update on the new second deskmat design?

The artist is quite busy at the moment, so itís taking longer than expected. Iíd say it should take about a week for the artwork to be finalized.

I keep coming back to look at the deskpad. This might very well be the first deskpad that I'm going to get with a GB.

Would you consider adding two 1.5u Super and two 1u Alt keys to the base for tsangan compat for mac users. similar to that of GMK minimal?

This is the first RAMA cap I consider buying, good lookin', black with GID :thumb:

However, I have to concur with the following statements:
I think the the  visor should go all the way to the top, like the suits in the Alien movie
...
Real life space helmets so far are fixed to the suit, while the astronaut's head can be turned inside. Thus, the visor should provide a wide field of view.

...
Well, imo I still think it needs to dissociate itself from looking like a motorcycle helmet
Having read the latter comment, the design now looks like a cross between space- and motorcycle helmet to me :p

I like the current design, but it is more artistic than realistic - whatever you prefer :thumb:

Thanks for the feedback! Iíll try see what I can do about that visor then :)

Hey all!
Sorry for the slow-ish updates. Iím out of town so itís pretty hard to be on top of things.
Group buy date has been finalised for February 25th as it slots in nicely between sets. Iíve tried to minimise conflict between this set and others so this date should work well!
Final deskmat art for the second deskmat is coming along, but the artist who I used for the first original design is moving slowly. Iíll update this thread and post when I do get that in.
Pricing for everything including kits, RAMA, deskmat, etc. will be coming very soon, Iím just needing to make some very small tweaks.
Thanks again for the support, have a nice day :)

Hey everyone,
Wanted to just post a quick update today:

1) Just received a sample of the artwork for the second deskmat, will update with renders soonô️
2) Getting quotes from GMK in the next week or so, I'll figure out pricing soon after, just waiting on one final kit render to finish.
3) Pricing for everything else, i.e: deskmats, artisans, RAMA, etc. is being finalized
4) Artisan collabs are being finalised, got some exciting stuff planned!
5) Other miscellaneous collabs are also happening, keep those eyes peeled

Thanks again for all the kind words of support so far :) Canít wait for this group buy!

Bumping to let you all know that the novelty kit needed some minor tweaks to be able to be manufactured by GMK. You can see the old/new renders and compare them to see the difference, although it's quite minor.

We also have the wonderful Salvun working with us to bring a brass engraved and coated keycap. See pic below :)

Awesome looking kit! Very interested, although is there a reason the spacebar kit is mod coloured not alpha coloured? Looking for a split space 65% I'd have to get the 40's kit for it to match correctly.

EDIT: I think it is just my crappy monitor, my bad! Great looking set

New novelties look great! The only one I'm not so keen on is the space helmet one ó If I didn't know the theme of the keyboard I'd be confused about what it's supposed to be.

1) There should be! Need to confirm everything with Yohan first
2) In the process of getting a coiled company onboard as we speak. Definitely would like one :)
