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.
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.
The Spectrum 25 judging event was held on February 24, 2018 at the Flesk Publications offices in Santa Cruz, CA. We were joined by the exceptional industry talents consisting of Terry Dodson, Tyler Jacobson, Tran Nguyen, Karla Ortiz and Chuck Pyle who spent the full day reviewing the Spectrum Call for Entries submissions. The group got along exceptional well as they made their anonymous votes followed by the group discussion to select the nominations for special recognition.
I had the pleasure of interviewing four of the judges. I hope you enjoy them along with a video highlight from the day.
