HAPPY BELATED NEW YEAR! Yes, sorry, I got sucked up into the holidays and with prepping for and attending final show dates the last 2 months. Some evens and odds: Sadly, my Gallery section is still MIA as Rhys Evans, my Techno-God at Inkwellawards.com continues to work on it in his spare (ha!) time. It’s been about a year and he says he’s wrapping things up. Good thing because I have folders reserving 32 commission files to upload!
I am doing commissions on hand and would be happy to take on more. I am still inking for Ravesnake and there might be new work within sight from Kingstone so I’m in a holding pattern there. I just posted the presently confrimed conventions for the year but that list will surely grow.
There’s also a new DK Publishing book out that interested me and possibly some of you Black Panther fans: Black Panther: The Ultimate Guide. I noticed that it’s smaller in size than past Marvel and DC editions and there’s no longer a dust jacket but if that’s what they needed to do to keep the price from rising then so be it. It’s got a Foreward by master scribe Don McGregor and multitudes of art from numerous sources, incluyding Sal Velluto and yours truly. My only gripe about these books is that they don’t credit any of the artists for their printed work. DC volumes used to at least list all artists who’s works werre included on the final acknowledgments page. Marvel doesn’t supply a list apparently since it doesn’t do the same. It’s a hardcover at 200 pages for $24.99 unless you can get it discounted from your retailer in a backorder or find one at B&N Books or Amazon online. Happy hunting!
That’s all I got for now but you’re sure to hear from me next month when the Panther film is out. I’ve waited almost 20 years for this and I think it’ll be worth the wait. Take care!
