Library Love

I’m happy to announce that The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaptation made a best of 2013 list, thanks to Library Journal.  We’re on a short list alongside enormous talents like Peter Bagge and Gene Luen Yang.  What an honor!

In addition, I received some pictures of the exhibit in Chicago that I mentioned in my last post.  I wish I could see these large scale prints in person, but the photos will have to do for those of us not in Chicago between now and March 2, 2014.  My thanks to the Chicago Public Library and the Harold Washington Library Center for hosting the show.

Below are pictures from earlier this year, but I thought I’d round out this graphic novel update with a snapshot that Jonathan Hennessey took at the Library of Congress National Book Festival in Washington DC Sept. 21-22.  Again, looking at the surrounding books…what great company!

I have more blog posts on a variety of topics coming this week/month, so stay tuned!  

Tableau of Merch

Here’s a little preview of some items that I will be selling at Emerald City Comicon this weekend.  You can find me at Table 2617 (or thereabouts) on the ECCC Level 4 Show Floor.  The framed image depicting a mantis attack in this snapshot will be on sale in the Krab Jab Studios Art Exhibit “The Gathering” on the TCC Level 3.  13th Age will also be represented on one of the TCC Levels of the Gaming Show Floor.

See you there!

PS. The Diabolist original art in the right hand corner of this image is spoken for, but for the time being you can still request a similar commission.

 

 

Sneak Peeks

Just a quick post to confirm that PAX was a great experience for me.  I witnessed a lot of enthusiasm for 13th Age while I was there.  People coming out of the demos seemed smitten. It is reassuring to know that I’m not the only one who wants the Kickstarter to succeed.  There are many people who already feel passionate about this game.  Lee and I did some collaborative sketching that I hope to share in the near future, but in the meantime there’s a new post by Rob Heinsoo on the Kickstarter, and he was kind enough to include this preview of a 13th Age page:

In addition, I took the display of prints that I had with me at PAX down to Guardian Games in Portland this afternoon.  They are currently on display in the gaming area.  So, on your way to storming the castle maybe you can take a moment’s pause to browse my modest exhibition.
