“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

T'CHALLA_bookplate


I've not posted in almost a week because putting the finishing touches on a big project is restrictive and time consuming - but in a good way. Please be patient with me; I'll get back to regular broadcasting very soon.


So the deal is for those of you who bought a copy of PREMIER[e] at this year's HeroesCon: I owe you all a 'book plate' image of your choice. It was a way to help balance out the price per copy and Jason Schachter kindly reminded me that this was the case. Thank goodness for Jason and his steel trap of a mind.

That said, here's the first to be claimed. Beyond this one - and this is specifically for ONLY those that bought a copy of the book - there were four others, and if those individuals happen to be reading this blog right now, then please claim what's rightfully yours. Simply e-mail Jason and tell him your character of choice and I'll get to it sooner rather than later.

The book plate measures 9x9", black and white, on 3-ply bristol paper.


Okay, there's that. Sorry for the oversight everyone - I assure you it wasnt intentional. Hope you all had a fine couple of weeks. Have a great weekend all and I'll be back really, really soon. Until then, enjoy yourself some Black Panther.

Very nice, I like the light from behind and the almost abstract jungle leaves. Real sense of place in such a simple compact composition.

Eric, was this bookplate offer only available to those purchasing at the convention and _not_ those of us that, while (unfortunately) not meeting you in person, _did_ order and pay to have the hefty (but wonderful) book shipped half-way ‘round the world?
