Since July I’ve been saying I had a third signed print in the works, this one a collaboration with an artist rather than a writer, but I was reluctant to say who until I had the art in hand, in case anything went awry. Well, the art came in last week, and it’s this stunning piece by Alex Ross that far outshines the meager concept I gave him. The print will be called “Comic Book Dreams”, and will have quite a bit of lettering on it. I’ll be showing that, and writing about the evolution of the print in the coming weeks, but right now I have to get them printed, painted, and off to Alex for signing. I’m hoping to have them ready for sale the last week of November.
In other print news, a third printing of “Alphabets of Desire” is complete and on the way to Alan Moore for signing, so that one will be available soon, too. And I have a second printing of “Before You Read This” printed, but it still needs to be painted before I can send it to Neil Gaiman for signing. I’ll be working hard the next few weeks trying to get all three prints ready for sale by the end of November. If my blog posts are on the light side, you’ll know why. Back to work!
