Botanical Mechanical Livestream

Dear Insane Children, 

It’s been a whirlwind of days – showing off the highlights of China and Shanghai. Seeing it fresh through the eyes of uninitiated American tourists… I can’t help but be impressed by all the progress and development made since when I first arrived in Asia 15 years ago. But enough about that…  After a week of carting my parents around the local wonders of Shanghai and surrounding provinces, I’m finally getting back to the care and feeding of our Asylum!


I’ve set up a YouTube livestream for June 13th, 2019 @ 9AM (Hong Kong Time). That’s 6PM on the 12th for those of you on US PST.  Here’s the timetable: 

And here is THE LINK <— hit that to set a reminder! 

We’ll talk about all the latest developments on Alice: Asylum art, narrative, and design. 

Don’t be late! 

Backerkit Emails!

Font Lord says all the Backerkit emails for the Rutledge Asylum Tags have been sent out. 

If you’ve not received one but think that you should then go through this checklist: 

1) Make sure you’ve actually been charged. Several people’s charges have been declined. If your charge was declined, there’s still time to resolve that – just contact Patreon Support and they’ll help you out. 

2) If you’re certain you’ve been successfully charged, then Check Your Spam Folder. Better yet, do a Search of your entire email for the word “survey” and you should see something from Backerkit.

3) If you’ve been charged AND searched your email AND still don’t find your Backerkit survey email – THEN (and only then!) you can hit THIS LINK to PM US. 

Tag Delivery Process

Asylum Tags are being manufactured now. We expect that process to end around June 28th. From there, the tags will start mailing to Insane Children around the world – probably around the start of July. Once mailing starts it’ll take 10~30 Business Days for delivery to most places in the world. That means you might expect your tags to arrive between the end of July and mid/late-August. 

There is tracking on all these shipments but we ask that you not PM US about tracking links until early August. In 99.99% of all cases, the items we ship out arrive without issue… but shipping stuff from China demands a little patience as delivery times can vary widely. 


I look forward to seeing you all during tomorrow’s livestream!

From Shanghai with Lulu,
