GO FOR THE GOLD! 4 Cover Art

GO FOR THE GOLD! 4 Cover Art

Surprise, another new book. GO FOR THE GOLD! is the name of the sketchbook anthology that we’ve been putting out through Meathaus in which a selection of artists share their sketchbook work. Issue 1 was a hand-made piece with silkscreened covers and photocopied interiors, and I’ve edited and published issues 2-4 using a print-on-demand printer. More info is coming soon on this issue which includes 39 international artists and is an impressive 379 pages long.

Above is the wrap around cover art that I illustrated based on characters from my contribution to the book. Click the image above to get a larger image that you can download and use as a desktop image.

Sasquatch and Sasquatch

Sasquatch and Sasquatch

Sasquatch’s Big Hairy Drawing Book made its debut at the 2011 San Diego Comic Con last week. I wasn’t there, but April from Chronicle sent me this photo of a sasquatch that came by the booth to check out the sasquatch related books. I don’t know if he left happy or not based on this photo.

Sasquatch Video Trailer

I’ve spent all morning posting this bad boy all over the internet, so I’ll finally slap it up here. This is a video trailer I made for Sasquatch’s Big Hairy Drawing Book. It makes sense these days for visual books to have video trailers with so many purchasing decisions being made in front of the computer screen. I wonder how many people will browse through the book in a store and buy it. I wonder how many people will watch this video and buy, or decide conclusively not to buy it, heh. Any way I loved the excuse to make a video, so here it is.

San Diego Comic Con

Sasquatch’s Big Hairy Drawing Book will be available to buy for the first time at the San Diego Comic Con at the Chronicle Books booth, #1506. Chronicle also has a special Comic Con page set up here with 25% off and free shipping. That page mentions “daily raffles” at the convention. One of your daily raffles will be this very, very sad original art of Sasquatch from my drawing book. All you have to do is show up at the booth and write on a raffle ticket to get a chance to win this original, sad ink drawing. It’s already sitting somewhere in California waiting for you!

I recently finished a book of illustrations about camels and gardening, more info on that soon. Until then, here is a small detail of this massive four page fold-out spread from the book.
