I’m delighted to announce my next 11 by 17 inch signed print will be a collaboration with artist J.H. Williams III. Above is a first look at the art, as sent, which I’m extremely happy with. The title will be “Drawing The Sword,” and I think the subject should be obvious. Text will be taken from “Le Morte d’Arthur” by Sir Thomas Malory. The print run will be 500 copies, signed by both of us, and will sell for $20, not including shipping. I’ll have more information, including an on-sale date in the coming weeks, but I’m aiming for the end of May at this point.
For those who don’t know, J.H. and I worked closely together on PROMETHEA, as described on my website HERE and HERE, and we continue to work together when we can, currently on Batwoman in DETECTIVE COMICS, beginning with issue 854. You can see some of the art on his website. J.H. is great fun to work with, and was an obvious choice for a print collaboration, and I’m glad we’ve finally gotten to it!
In the past week I’ve done the lettering and design work, and sent test copies to J.H. for his approval. He’s happy, so I’ve ordered the paper and will begin printing when that comes in. Next I’ll paint spot color on each print, sign them, and send them to J.H. for his signatures. When I have them all completed and back in my hands I’ll set the on-sale date. If you’d like to be notified of that, and be among the first to get on-sale and ordering info, you can sign up to my Mailing List. Information about the previous print collaborations with Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman and Alex Ross can be found on my Buy Stuff page, along with other things I have for sale.
I’ll be blogging about the creation of this new print in the coming weeks, too, once it’s further along. Stay tuned!
