Development for the main character of my story for Spike’s upcoming horror anthology The Sleep of Reason. I finished my story just the other day and I am very very pleased with it; that book should be available for preorder soon.
Hey do you like good art, Pokemon, or speculative biology? If you don’t get outta here! If you do, check out the Midnight Monsters kickstarter by B9 Kingdom! They only have one week left and they are trending towards not reaching their goal. Their goal is $30,000 and their on track to reach $24,000-30,500 which is VERY narrow to say the least.
Capture Creatures- by Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson Inspired by Ken Sugimori’s feat of designing the original 151 Pokemon in a single year Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson have created 151 unique creatures, relations, and descriptors.
The Exquisite Beast- by Evan Dahm and Yuko Ota A series of illustrations of a monster evolving traded between Yuko and Evan. All illustrations were done with ink and inkwash.
If you were not previously aware, these fine books are now available for preorder! Including-but-not-limited-to my and Evan’s collected Exquisite Beastproject!
We worked really hard on designing these books and the Exquisite Beast book is hopefully gonna be really lovely, especially the deluxe edition. We’re shooting for the deluxe cover to be a three-piece done with black faux leather binding over a cloth cover with a screenprinted design, debossed title area, a pasted-on title card. With a ribbon bookmark. I’m ridiculously excited. 8D
And it’s gonna be full of weird monsters and that is cool, too!
Going to reblob this again because Yuko explains it so well. I am super excited about this Exquisite Beast book; it’s been really fun putting together and I think it will turn out great!
Just flat colors for now. It’s that guy from the cover of my Benign Kingdom book! Those, by the way, will be for sale on the Rice Boy site before too long, and we’re working on getting an actual Benign Kingdom site up and working.
