Our Art of Tyler Jacobson Kickstarter Campaign Ends On August 5th!

Our Art of Tyler Jacobson Kickstarter campaign ends on Thursday, August 5th.

All of the book and print pledges come with a free signed mini-print and access to a streaming time-lapse video of the book cover and slipcase painting. We have a deluxe signed edition and trade hardcover on offer, along with some beautiful signed premium prints.

This art featured today is a thesis piece done by Tyler while he was in college. This book will show examples of his earliest drawings all the way up to his most recent paintings.

Here’s the link to learn more:

Jeffrey Alan Love Signed Books!

Hi, all,

We had a driveway visit with Jeffrey Alan Love earlier this week. Jeff was kind enough to sign more copies of his Notes From the Shadowed City and The Thousand Demon Tree books. We have them available on our Flesk website.

It was nice to catch up with Jeff and to hear about a pair of book ideas that he has. He’s a great guy and wonderful to work with. I look forward to publishing more books with Jeff in the future.

Spectrum: The Gift of Community

Hi, everyone,

When people learn that I’m an art book publisher, the number one question that they ask is if I am an artist.

The answer is that my gifts lie elsewhere. Instead of being an artist, I have this fortunate position to be able to bring people together, to help raise the awareness of the art community, to be able to make books on the artists whose work that I love, to share who these artists are with others, and to raise artists up, while playing a part in putting the spotlight on them. In addition, I am humbled by being able to participate in running the Spectrum awards ceremony. This ceremony goes far beyond simply handing out awards. We get to recognize the entire fantastic art community on stage, in a prestigious theater. This was a dream for Arnie and Cathy Fenner to be able to to one day. And now this vision has become a reality where hundreds of people can participate.

Fantastic artists, on stage, in the spotlight, being recognized for outstanding achievement, among their peers, the fans, and the community. It’s unlike anything else.

So no, I’m not an artist. I was not given that gift. But, I’m ecstatic that so many others have this gift and that I can help share your gifts with others.

I hope you can join us at the Spectrum 26 Awards Ceremony that will be held on March 30, 2019 at the Folly Theater in Kansas City, MO.

Thanks for making so much beautiful art, and thank you for allowing me to be a part of this community.

If you are interested in submitting to Spectrum 26, you have until Thursday, January 24th.

Stoke Out Santa Cruz A Success!

Hi all,

The Stoke Out 2018 charity event was a big success! I’ll write more about it later, but for now here’s me and my buddy Gary Velo and his son “J” after a busy day of volunteering. (And some dodgeball action afterward!) Dozens of volunteers made it possible to help hundreds of families today. It was a good day.

Enjoy,

John

Art of Al Williamson Book in the Works

I’m back to working on the new Al Williamson art book. Here’s a picture that I took of a stack of X-9 originals in Al’s studio to whet your appetite while you wait for me to finish the book.

Much of the detective work has been done. I have all of the art that I need with few exceptions. I just need to get scans of a handful of prime EC originals, and a few scans from Creepy, Eerie and House of Mystery–then there will be representation from just about every area that Al touched.

I haven’t set a release date. It’ll be done when it’s done. I’ve been wanting to do this book for the last 8 years. I’m pretty happy to be sitting here with Kathy as we chip away at it!

Enjoy,

John

My first book!

Scanning assistance: After the release of the Franklin Booth book, Gary Gianni asked me if I could scan his art for use in an upcoming self-published book of his. I scanned the original artwork for the 40 story pages for Corpus Monstrum by Gary Gianni, published by Hieronymus Press in 2002. Jim Keegan designed the book.

Many more to come!

Enjoy,

John
