Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you know how things were progressing here in the busiest year yet. I am just literally waiting for the proof copy of Unpleasant Tales to drop through my letterbox (or more likely for me to slog over to the post office and pick it up). When that happens, and I am satisfied that there is nothing wrong with it, the book will be good to go and I will take a large celebratory drink of relief.
With Unpleasant Tales finished, I have started working on the art for Sylvow, Tallest Stories, Bloody War and Blind Swimmer. I am not used to working on so many at the same time and I am starting to feel the pressure! But at any rate, look out for these titles in the not too distant future. So far, I have solid concepts and layouts for all except Tallest Stories (which is still just an idea, basically). I am hoping to get all these complete by September – but we shall have to see whether or not I manage that.
A word about Automatic Safe Dog: I am doing something here that I have never tried before and involving a second artist, who will be collaborating with me. This eccentric novel certainly deserves the treatment and I think that will help produce a truly maverick cover design for it.
If you want to place orders for any of the forthcoming books, just a reminder that we do have a reservation system. Essentially, just drop me an email and I will make sure you get copies of the books as soon as they are released.
Ok, back to work . . .
