I'll be conducting a one day class/lecture on character design at the Entertainment Art Academy on February 19th.
I'll have lots of prelim stuff and finished work done for various studio projects that I can't show here. I'll be deconstructing them and illustrating what works, what doesn't and why. I'm going to try to cram as much info into the day as I can without it becoming too incomprehensible.
Glen Murakami, Stephen Silver and Mike Mignola have done them in the past and I've heard great things about the classes. I'm really looking forward to it. You can get more details via the link over there on the right.
Maybe 2 next year, one in the spring and one in the fall. We have soft dates now, but we'll wait to firm them up before posting them here. One of the dates will likely be on the east coast.
GOT YOUR NOSE-
Final animation is wrapping now. Scoring, editing and revisions should go rather quickly. I think there's an air date in the early spring.
Book release schedule-
Available summer 06. Same size and page count as CHROMAPHILE but with all new content. Some of which can be seen here on the blog.
KINGS OF THE ROAD-
This one is a wild card. It's basically complete but with nowhere to go. It's an odd book that doesn't easily fit into any category or genre. My guess is that it'll see print as a small run of 1,000. Hardcover- 96 pages- 5x7.
(WELCOME TO THE) BIG CITY-
Scheduled to debut at Comic Con in San Diego. Hardcover- 128 pages- 11x9.5
JACK AND RUSTLE, IT GREW THERE-
Maybe late 06, it depends on how the first half of the year goes.
New shirts, stickers, skate decks, toys and other merchandise starting in late spring.
