Spectrum 24 artists! Here’s a nice surprise for you.
We’ve mailed out 300 packages today with your complimentary copies. Another big batch of books goes out tomorrow. Last year I gave away over 500 hardcover copies to artists, students, and professionals, all with the incentive to get your work in front of as many industry people as possible to get you recognized for the fine work that you do. In addition, it’s my hope that you get commissions and/or work out of being in Spectrum as well.
You all should start to receive them soon. I look forward to your comments when you do!
Thank you all so much for being a part of Spectrum. Whether you are an artist featured in the book, someone who has submitted, or a fan who purchases the book, you have my utmost gratitude for supporting us so that we can highlight and build upon this amazing positive community each year.

A few years ago, Gary Gianni began to work on a personal project; a fully illustrated edition of one of Lovecraft’s most highly regarded texts, The Call of Cthulhu. Gary Completed a full mock-up of the book by heavily designing the story with approximately 100 pencil drawings in preparation for the pen and ink finishes. Despite his intentions to complete the book, (George R.R. Martin wanted Gary to work on a small project of his!) and in spite of all the pencil work, it was set aside and never came to fruition. Now we have a unique opportunity to see this version in a beautifully produced book.
In addition, Gary is refining the design and many of the drawings to make this bonus book even more special. With your help we can give you this version as a free bonus for supporting the Kickstarter campaign with a pledge of $50.00 or more!
Thanks everyone for your ongoing support! Here’s the Kickstarter link.
