while I was sitting and drinking with my best friend Tom3k (tom3k-s.deviantart.com/
) a few nights ago, he pointed out to me that I haven't been posting new stuff on dA for almost a year now... and hellyeah was he right!
12 months flew by and I don't know where they are now.
Anyway, to make a very long story short:
I took my time off, from virtually everything, started working (and living) again and finished my 2. artbook a few weeks ago.
It was a roller-coaster and a very long and intensive journey but thanks to my wife and my friends everything came to a good end.
The book is scheduled for Feb./ March 2011 and will include new art on 48 pages.
The publisher is again SQP Inc. and the book will be sold and distributed worldwide by these fine guys.
For this project, I collaborated with the best colorist I have ever worked together with: José A. Cano who might already be known by some of you by the name of jocachi (jocachi.deviantart.com/
He painted my grey world with digital color on 30 images.
Besides these 30 stunners, I have also created new photo- realistic graphite drawings for the book as well as some new sketches, studies and commission works that were done in the last 14 months.
I have uploaded 4 colored images from the book as preview for you in my gallery here.
I hope you enjoy them, I truly do.
More info will be posted as soon as I have an exact release date for the book.
In the meantime, take care and enjoy the falling leaves.
...and last but never least:
Thank you all for your notes, comments and favs throughout the last months. It is all very appreciated!
