With both Mark Schultz and my invitation to the Stripbeurs Breda show in the Netherlands, Mark and I decided to put together a special sketchbook for the show. Mark Schultz Blue Book will contain preliminary work done for Storms at Sea, his Pulpette pieces, and additional unpublished work taken from his personal sketchbook. Many of these works are done in blue pencil. There will be no overlap with Schultz’s Various Drawings series.
We just wrapped up the cover, and I wanted to show it off! At top is the front cover, and underneath is the front and back cover jacket. Both pieces are details of finished works for Storms at Sea. The front cover piece was completed last week.
This paperbound collection will run sixteen-pages at 5.5 x 8.5″ in full color. It will be limited to 1000 copies and each will be signed by Schultz. The price is $10.00 / €7.00. We will debut the sketchbook in Breda on March 7, 2010. The US debut will be at WonderCon on April 2-4. I’ll also have these available through mail order in April 2010. These won’t be available through the book or comic stores.
