RCCC in One Week

I’m looking forward to RCCC next Friday, but examining my inventory of The Comic Book Story of Beer comps, I’m afraid I may not have enough to get me through the weekend.  It looks like I’m just shy of 20 copies and since the book won’t be officially released until Sept 22nd, I’ll have to go with what I’ve got.  If you’re planning to be at RCCC and want to ensure that you’ll be able to pick up a copy while supplies last, drop me an email and we can work out the details.  I’m also up for doing a sketch in the book beforehand if you order ahead of time.  During the con I probably won’t do much beyond a signature and a quick doodle, but if you want something more like the examples below, please contact me this week.

It’s an  exciting time for The Comic Book Story of Beer.  Reviews are starting to trickle in like this ARTICLE on suvudu.com!  It’s great to hear that people are enjoying it!  Cheers!

The Elder Scrolls: Tales of Tamriel

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tales of Tamriel Book I: The Land is currently available and I spotted a copy or two at Powell’s on Burnside the other day.  I have a number of illustrations included and it’s a handsomely designed hardcover from Titan Books.  This book is sure to be appealing to anyone gearing up for the release of the video game Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited available June 9th.  Book II: The Lore will be out in September of this year and I’ll post more of my illustrations when that book is released.

3…2…1…ComicCon

I’ll be tabling with Periscope Studio at the Rose City Comic Con this Saturday and Sunday.  I’m currently stocked with copies of the freshly printed 13 True Ways that I will have available among my other books, prints and original art.  I hope to see you there!

13th Age Core Book Preview

The 13th Age Core Book is finally available from Pelgrane Press!  Buy It Here!  The book has been long anticipated by some patient folks (it was originally slated for release in December 2012), but all new to others.  The game has been available as a PDF for months, but the official book release was at Gen Con this past weekend.  It has been rewarding to see numerous snapshots of the cover pop up on the web posted by people who pre-ordered and received the book by mail.  I’ve seen very few pictures of the book’s interior, though, so I thought I’d make use of my blog and post a few shots of what you see inside when you crack that cover.  Much of the polish and beauty of the interior can be attributed to Lee Moyer who meticulously art directed the overall design, created the icon symbols and various tiles, and painted many of my illustrations.  In addition, Chris Huth is responsible for the stunning page layouts.  It’s a $45 dollar book, but at 320 pages and over 60 illustrations, this is a book that even the Archmage would add to his library of mystical tomes.

Here’s a Preview…

Those pictures with my hand may just seem like an opportunity to fulfill my dream to be a hand model, but I’m trying to showcase the Icon Ring that came with my comp.  An outer piece rotates and allows the bearer of the ring to randomly select an icon during key moments of game play.  A few of the illustrations showcase characters who in some way are representing a relationship that they have with one of the Icons.  Buy the book and try to find all the connections…then it’s time to start making up your own!  Game On!

“Available Wherever Books are Sold”

I received my author comps in the mail this morning on this official release day of The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaptation.  I’m very happy with the print quality and it’s satisfying to have it in hand after putting years of work into the project.  I hope you get a chance to read it soon and I’d be interested to hear your impressions.  Thoughtful reviews on amazon.com are also much appreciated.  Speaking of reviews, there are already two starred reviews from Kirkus and Publisher’s Weekly.  Go to graphicgettysburg.com to read the reviews, if you like.  Thank you for your interest!
