This is like waiting for Christmas to come.
That period leading up to the publication of the piece one spent so much time and labor on feels like unwrapping a brightly colored package on Christmas morning. I’ve already experienced it 31 times over as I opened the emailed j-pegs from colorist Lovern Kindzierski of the 30 individual pages plus the cover.
Then there’s the last minute shopping: prepping the artwork to provide the endpaper image and producing the montage image for the back cover.
Last minute details.
A belated welcome to Craig Russell to our blog! We’ve got a series of fascinating videos/interviews of him working specifically on his next Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde, the 5th volume with the Happy Prince, coming out in April and to be premiered at MoCCA in NY end of April. We’ll post one a week of those and also have him comment in regular blog entries on his work.
The book is being solicited for now at comics stores.
We’re also busy at the office working on putting together the book to go out to the printer tomorrow. The artwork is stunning and Lovern Kindzierski’s colors just beautiful! Lovin’ every minute.
We’ve just updated our Coming Up section all the way to what’s shipping in June.
Check it out!
Includes Craig Russell’s new volume 5 of the Fairy Tales of Oscar Wilde after many a year hiatus…. and Geary’s next Treasury of XXth Century Murder, besides a bunch of new sets, AND a thick art book on PEYO done for a gallery presentation in Europe we’re importing!
