October 10 2014 - The Wonderful Wizard of Oz Illustrated!
or the past year, I've been illustrating
L. Frank Baum's novel the Wonderful Wizard of Oz
, and now I'm getting it printed as a nice hardcover book!! You can check out the Kickstarter and preorder the book
if you like, and I'd really appreciate any help in getting the word out! Thank you so much.
It was a very fun project, and low-intensity enough that I did ok at juggling it with Vattu and other things. It's a very fun book if you haven't read it; much weirder and more dreamlike than the movie or other popular adaptations... I tried to emphasize the sense of being lost in a vast, colorful place in the illustrations. There's about 100 of them and you can see them and some process at this blog here
October 1 2014 - Conventions in October
ey buddies. Book 3 is underway and I'm swamped as usual. Currently working ahead for my next convention: MICE
, this weekend in Cambridge, MA! I've never done this one before but it looks very fun and friendly and I like the work of a lot of exhibitors. After that, my last show for the year is Locust Moon Festival
in Philadelphia, on October 25. I'm in the process of nailing down plans for Spring 2015 shows. More traveling, forever.
is going well, and since we reached the $300 goal, I'll be sending out a big collection of sketchbook material in the next few days to EVERYONE who backs at any amount by October 2. Seriously just back some amount and then cancel before your card gets charged. I just want you to have this thing.
We're almost done with SCENE NUMBER 1 of BOOK NUMBER 3 of Vattu. Got some places to go with this story. Thank you for reading.
