Done Done & Done


I've finished all my pieces for Ink Bloom! Once again, this thing is a monster. Jim and I have completed loads of art for this book. 30 Step-By-Step demos and an additional 30+ pieces of art! All original art from top to bottom makes this the most ambitious project I've worked on.

I can't believe it. Now what am I going to do...???

I guess I'll have to wait.

Finally Done

After many months of work I am finally finished with all of my work for Ink Bloom. The book now has about twice as much art as was originally planned for, and about 50 extra pages. That meant a lot more work, but I think the end result will be all the better for it, especially for the reader. The story is more engrossing and the visuals are going to blow you away. Plus, it will come with a DVD showing Chris painting. All of that for $26.99, what a deal.
We've seen some of the preliminary layout from the graphic designer, Guy Kelly, and they look awesome. We're both really happy with the work he's doing. It's very satisfying to see it all coming together.
Chris is finishing up his last couple of paintings right now, so once he's done we'll give you all another sneak peak of some artwork.
Finally, we had a great news article about the book in the November issue of Imagine FX, and Fantasy Art China is going to do a large article on us with artwork as well. Things are really getting exciting now. I can't wait to see this bad boy in print.
