You know, if you love slice of life comics that really give you a lot of organic watercolory atmosphere and emotion, you should really order Enrico Casarosa's amazing new book THE VENICE CHRONICLES.. Enrico's a good friend and I've seen this book come to life quite nicely over the past few months. It's an amazing package, a hefty little hardcover with meaty woodfree interior pages graced with painting after painting of genius.

Amazon's got 'em cheap, so order today, along with some other things...;)

Hey all-

The good folks over at COMIC RELATED have kindly posted a few pages from TIGER!TIGER!TIGER! Volume 1. go check 'em out, then order your copy! The Diamond Catalogue order number is OCT08 3781. I just got my advances from China and they look just the way I wanted them to. Pics soon.

Here's a unique look at some of the "process" of fabricating hardcover books overseas. NOTES OVER YONDER and TIGER!TIGER!TIGER! are both being printed by GLOBAL PSD in China, the same company that produced the finished ANCIENT BOOK OF MYTH AND WAR, as well as Bill Presing's beautiful BELLE DUJOUR and BOOKPLATE BETTIES and Enrico Casarosa's upcoming VENICE CHRONICLES. I hear we'll get some pics of the binding process soon, so stay tuned, and order these books if you haven't already! AMAZON links on the right.

Just a reminder to order NOTES OVER YONDER and TIGER!TIGER!TIGER! Now's the time those retailers are placing their orders from Diamond, and Amazon counts as a "retailer". These aren't limited run books, really, but initial orders are the key hit for self-publishers. Ordering now helps me along with future projects in a big way, and your support means the world! Again, I WILL more than likely produce a very small run of "limited editions" of both of these books, but probably limited to just 25 copies of each. As for the affordable edition for your bookshelf or coffee table, though, Amazon has the best deals I've seen on both (NOTES OVER YONDER)(TIGER!TIGER!TIGER!) There's "Look Inside!" previews of both on Amazon, too!

musketeers of olde and late

Sometimes things slip through the cracks, but eventually they get done. Here are a couple of commissions I've neglected for way too long. And that, my friends, is why I usually shy away from online commissions.

Two More Benefits

Two more benefit auction pieces. I'll post more details on where you can get the WONDER WOMAN soon, but the elephant is for an Italian benefit calendar, Unione Italiana Volontari Ciechi, an association that helps the blind with their everyday lives.

TOTORO FOREST bidding open!

That's right! Go now to bid on your favorite pieces. Mine are priced with low opening bids of $100 each, and for a painting that size, that's a good deal if you snag one! All of the art is amazing, whether you bid on mine or someone else's...just get in there and help out the forest! Above you'll notice some Flying Tiger Air Buses, too...those are 4 more original art bookplates that you could possibly score an original of if you buy a $500 ticket to the event. Each $500 ticket comes with an original piece of art by one of the artists. ;)
