SAN DIEGO PREVIEW #1: Hobo the Elephant is on his way!
So if you've got a keen eye, you might be aware that San Diego Comic Con will see the debut of some new RED WINDOW items, in particular, RED WINDOW SPRING 2008 and RED WINDOW SUMMER 2008. These will be limited edition art catalogues, CONVENTION EXCLUSIVE, with left-overs being offered online afterwards via a nifty PAYPAL link when the time comes. The SPRING issue will feature some unused art that was developed as pitches for NEW YORKER covers, images that have appeared here in the past. The SUMMER issue will feature Hobo the Elephant. Each issue, and future issues, will run 8 pages in length and feature high-quality reproductions of my paintings. No story material...these will be like getting 8 prints in one package, if one were so inclined to cut up an issue and frame the pages. These books will be limited to 250 copies, signed and numbered, priced at $10 each. When they run out they'll be completely unavailable, as there are no plans to keep these RED WINDOW issues in print. This may be the only format these particular paintings may appear in.
Now, PLEASE DO NOT e-mail with requests for these yet. I appreciate you all and your patronage and loyalty but these will be for the con as an incentive for people to come and say hello and shake hands in person. If and when I have any leftovers, they'll be offered here as soon as I return from the con in July. The good news is that these puppies are done and in production now, so they'll be ready to go on Preview Night.
