A KickStarter campaign was used to try and establish Julian's new cricket bat label. However, the set goal was not met and it was seen as the marking of his final making days, "Without the establishment of an academy, the opportunity for me to continue in my trade and to pass on my skills to a new generation has passed by and, although this is sad for me personally, it’s time to hang up my tools and move on to other things."[3]
