Back in June, Bruce Timm emailed me about a fresh stack of originals that he pulled together for me to scan for possible upcoming projects. When he mentioned that there was over 400 pieces we both got nervous about shipping them in the mail.
Vicky and I drove down to the LA area to scan and photograph the originals to make the process smoother. We arrived back home with enough material for three new Timm books. Pretty exciting!
This picture is of our makeshift office at the hotel. You can see a stack of originals on the scanner, and even more in the binder. There is another full binder that you can’t see in this picture. Bruce makes all of his art on standard copy paper. This is his favorite type of paper to work on.
Since this trip, Bruce has discovered more artwork. Another photography trip is in our future!
The first all-new book of three is planned for the fall 2023 at the earliest. I will share the details about exactly what each of these titles will focus on in the future. In the meantime, we hope you continue to enjoy The Big Tease and Naughty and Nice.
It has been quite the week! Here’s a breakdown of some of the things that we have accomplished this week.
Thanks to Kathy and Vicky, plus our summer helper Rachel, all of the Naughty and Nice: The Good Girl Art of Bruce Timm and Pencil and Ink by Frank Cho books have been packed. The last of the U.S. orders ships today. The international orders all go out early next week.
Vicky and I worked with Tyler Jacobson to build and launch his art book Kickstarter campaign that went live last Tuesday. It’s been amazing to see so much support for Tyler.
I’ve been working with an artist and writer to finish a new book that is going to the printer today. This is an unannounced project with two new people who I have never worked with before. I’ll share the news about who they are and what the book is in the coming months.
Kathy even managed to squeeze in some Arthur Adams scanning.
I’d say we have had a productive week!
Next week we will continue to work on Tyler’s book, plus we have another book that has not been announced that is almost done. I’m also starting to think about getting started on the next Al Williamson book. There’s plenty going on to keep us going throughout the summer.
Back in 2012 we released Naughty and Nice: The Good Girl Art of Bruce Timm. The original printing is shown at left. The revised Big Pocket edition is shown at right. Both sold out quickly.
People have been asking for years if we would reprint this book. Well, good news, we will bring this book back back in print in the fall of 2021. We’re currently wrapping up 5 other books before we can turn our attention to Naughty and Nice.
We’ll be using the Big Pocket cover, which is our favorite image of the two options. The new printing will be 9 x 12″ and we will have a hardcover and paperback edition. More news about this coming in the spring of 2021!
