My advance copy of Spectrum 11 arrived!!!! Holy cow it looks great! Spectrum is one of my favourite books, and of course this year I am actually in it, hehehe.... Even without the obvious bias, I think that this is the best edition so far!
It features "Hunger Pains" and it looks just perfect, it is such an honor to be in there with many of my favourite artists - just amazing. They even spelled my name right - yay!!! (I'm always uber-paranoid about that for some reason). It also plugs my website, has my contact info, etc. Wow!!!
It's not in stores yet (most stores at least) but should be in the next couple of weeks - just about every bookstore I've been to carries it. I'd highly recommend it to ANYBODY who is interested in fantasy art - it truly has some of the year's best pieces in there. I have several editions of it going back many years, and they are some of my favourite books.
I do plan on getting some signed copies in stock eventually, but I have no idea when I'll do that (I'm trying to figure out how I get them through the publisher with my contributing artist's discount). They are taking preorders HERE at Amazon though (and of course if you are ever interested in having it or any other book I'm in signed, just email me and I'll give you the address info).
And of course, things are progressing nicely with my book - very slow, but moving right along. I still don't have a release date for sure, but it should be early next year, perhaps spring. I will update with info as I get it - I'm not yet taking pre-orders, but I will let you all know when I start accepting them =)
Let me see - other than that, not a whole lot exciting going on - I did just send out a very exciting contract though, but I'll have to fill you all in on that later ;) I finished some wonderful new first edition canvas prints last night - they all turned out beautifully - I can't wait to share them! I will post them later tonight, along with a TON of "SALE" prints - just in time for the holidays! I'm also working on my yeti/kushtaka/walrusboy painting - you can watch me HERE!
