Thanks to all who came out to my art exhibition reception on Sunday. I appreciate your support. It was wonderful chatting with everyone and reconnecting with folks I haven’t seen in a while.
It’s time that I tell you about a book that I’ve been working on in secret for quite some time now. If I count the very first rough draft and sketches from which the book spawned, it has been seven years in the making, possibly more. I’m happy to announce that the book is complete. Like my other books, this has been a labour of love and I can’t wait to share it with you! Unfortunately, I can’t make it available just yet because I’m not publishing it myself. I’m shopping this one around to literary agents, trying to find that special someone in the publishing world who understands what I do and can distribute the book to the world.
This announcement amounts to little more than an unveiling of a promise that a new book is coming. I wish I could say more, and when the time seems right, I will.
In the meantime, I can reveal a couple of the graphics that appear in the book.
This is how I draw many of the little graphic bits and pieces for my books — just floating freely in a sketchbook. I then scan the drawing and move it around in InDesign when it’s time to do the layout.
Stay tuned. This publishing journey has just begun.
Just a reminder that if you want to see, or indeed, buy original artwork from my published book “Dwellers of Lurching Swill”, it’s on display at Vesuvio Pizzeria & Spaghetti House until July 14. You can find the restaurant’s address and other info by clicking here.
