It’s hard to believe but 2018 will be my 25th year in comics. Honestly, it doesn’t feel like it’s been 25 years because I’m doing what I love, writing and drawing comics. And sketching. Sketching is an important part of the creative process, sort of a midway point between that wispy idea in your brain and the finished art you share with the world.
The 25th Anniversary Sketchbook is 216 pages of my favorite and most influential sketches, from 1993 to present day, collected in one trade paperback. And by influential, I mean that sketches are often the seed to something that later appears in a story, or in my case, inspired an entire series. One sketch spawned the entire Strangers in Paradise series, another sketch inspired Motor Girl. Those drawings, and many others like them, are in this book with my notes and comments.
The 25th Anniversary Sketchbook is available in two versions, softcover and hardcover. The softcover hits stores in early December and sells for $16.99.
The hardcover edition is available only through Abstract Studio. Price is $28.99. The hardcover has an impressive gloss-on-matte cover. It’s a beauty! If you would like this special edition hardcover, place your order HERE.
