CUTTINGS proof

We got a plotter proof for CUTTINGS from the printer. It took a few days to get our notes together, but everything’s looking good. 

For this book in particular, we’re using (on various editions) spot gloss, foil stamping, pantone endsheets and a dust jacket with foil stamping + die-cut. This is probably the most complicated cover I’ve put together, although the Exquisite Beast LTD comes close. I came up with a trick for the binding of the CUTTINGS LTD that I’m proud of, but the best way to explain will be to show. Happy to say I get better and learn something new every time.

More news via Kickstarter when I have it (you’ll have to log in). Thanks everyone who backed the book, we’re workin’ hard for you.

This book is going to look really handsome, guys!  Ananth really killed it with the layouts, he put in a lot of overtime to get it just right.

We’re at SPX 2014! (i drew this with my left hand)
Hey guys!  Ananth and I are going to be at SPX in Bethesda MD this upcoming weekend!  We’re going to be at table #W-89 at the front far left and sharing a table with Magnolia (Monster Pulse) and Tom (Gunnerkrigg Court)!!
Sorry in advance: I will NOT be doing sketches or signing of any kind this year, as both of my hands are injured. Ananth has volunteered to sign everything twice!  If, uh, you want that.
See you there!

More non-dominant illustrations.  Posted the drawing of this one on twitter a while ago, but it took a long while to color.  (Mostly due to going in and digitally re-coloring the rain with my left hand.)
For those keeping up with my health issues: my right hand is feeling minutely better from its respite, I appreciate the concern and the nice messages.  I’ve now had an MRI but have not been diagnosed yet.  Thanks everyone for your patience with me.

Wrist is still in rough shape so I’ve been trying to do regular non-dominant hand drawings.  Since I’m already unsteady doing this stuff, I’m trying to force myself to draw things I don’t like drawing.

My right wrist has been in bad bad shape lately, so I’m back to working with my non-dominant hand until I finish a couple rounds with doctors.  Yesterday my personal challenge was fine detail x Ivan Bilibin.

There are many stories about Dhio, nearly every one of them is false.

Aaa sorry for the lull!  I returned from Japan and have since been working on MANY THINGS SIMULTANEOUSLY.  This is going to be a page in CUTTINGS!  You might remember one of the drawings from earlier.

Brand new art for the title page of CUTTINGS, the newest Johnny Wander collection. The Kickstarter ends in 17 hours! Thank you so much for your support! You’ve crossed so many of the goals— this book is going to be everything we wanted and we have you to thank for that.
CUTTINGS on Kickstarterjohnnywander.com

This and the cover images were the two new big pieces of art that I did just for the CUTTINGS book.  I’ve been really excited to share this one!  (For those intererested, there is going to be a LOT of art of Kaia and Dhio and North in the book - including a bunch that’s never been shared anywhere.)

Aaa oh gosh there is less than a day left in the Kickstarter!!  Thank you so much again to everyone who’s contributed, reblogged, or promoted this project.  It’s gonna be so cool when it’s finished, just you wait!

2013 Japan Travelogue comics (pages 7&8)

Whenever I go to Japan I try to make some sort of travelogue of my trip.  I never shared my comics from 2013 anywhere, but they’ll be included (along with the 2012 comics) in the CUTTINGS collection, so this’ll be the only way to read all of ‘em!

The CUTTINGS kickstarter is still runnning for 3 more days! Thank you again to everyone who’s contributed, I’m so excited over how the book has been turning out!!
