Follow-up: Matt Kish's One Drawing for Every Page of Moby-Dick (discussed here) is now complete.

If you're a fan of the art, a book is on its way, or you can buy some pieces on Matt's Etsy shop.

Nota bene: follow-ups belong on the front page if anywhere at all.

Awesome, thanks for posting this update....I missed the first post, and I'm maybe 1/4 way through the book right now.

Super illegal, I'll just close this up now.

We were wondering when you were going to get around to doing that.

And by "we", I do mean me, and the mouse in my pocket.

I'll just check to be sure he's still there.

Yep, still there. Good mouse.

I didn't post this on the front page because the original post was just a little over a year ago. I thought it would get deleted as a double. Sorry for the mistake. I thought MeTa was the place to post follow-ups to old posts that didn't have sufficient new content to warrant something on MeFi.

Within the last year or so the feeling is that if a post doesn't merit a post on the blue then don't make it, but that meta isn't really meant as a secondary option.

I'm not sure I agree with this, but I do understand why this is the case.

I'd say you should post it again, since it may not be new links, but it is for sure new content.

Reminded me of this long-forgotten gem of a comment by aws17576, which included a link to their beautiful hand-written and -illustrated treatment of the book's epilogue that aws17576.

Reminded me of this Orson Whales post from a few years ago. Thanks.

We should probably add that to the 'new post' page at this point.

I thought MeTa was the place to post follow-ups to old posts that didn't have sufficient new content to warrant something on MeFi.

It used to be but the mods have made it clear in recent months they'd prefer not to fill MeTa with non-Mefi-related followups to old posts.
