For those who ordered a hardcover 2021 Sketchbook, we received the shipment yesterday and found a flaw in the printing of the hardcovers. We have decided to reprint them even though this means a delay in fulfilling preorders. We are working with our printer to reprint ASAP but their backlog is enormous in these challenging times. This new printing will be signed, numbered and very limited. We ask for your patience as we work to deliver a book that you will be proud to own. If you feel uncomfortable waiting please contact us at [email protected] and we will be happy to refund your money.
I’m sorry to report our website can no longer accept and ship orders to Europe. The VAT tax change going into effect July 1 makes the transaction difficult and unprofitable for us. We will continue to watch the situation and look into any small business solutions.
DETAILS: The 2021 Sketchbook… 106 pages of my very best sketches from 2020 and 2021. Katchoo, Francine, Sam and Mike, Casey, Lilith, even the precocious Zoe are here and looking good. Having just poured my heart and soul into 40 new sketches for the recent LIVE! event, you can be sure that this collection will be my best. There will be a hardcover exclusively from us for $25.99, and a softcover for retail at $15.99. The hardcover will have a signed bookplate so every copy comes signed. No need to request a signature—it’s already in there!
The book is in production this week and goes to the printer Monday the 26th. We give them the print run that day and it will be whatever our preorders are, no extras. Don’t miss your chance to own a hardcover copy of this beautiful book!
The 2nd issue of Zoe’s new series is now available in our webshop. In this issue, the killer from issue 1 claims another victim… right under Zoe’s nose! Zoe knows the trail goes cold fast and she is on it, immediately tracing the killer’s path with some clever deductions. It’s predator vs predator.
My new How To Draw book is at the printer! It’s a greatly expanded version of the 2012 original—you can see a side by side comparison in the photo below. I’ve updated every page, added 2 new chapters and redesigned the cover. I’m happy to have a chance to update this book and present it to the modern world. A lot has changed since 2012 and I now have those extra years of art and storytelling experience in the updated book.
SOFTCOVER VERSION: The softcover version is $18.99 and will be available in March on our site, at comic shops and in digital format at ComiXology.
HARDCOVER VERSION: Yes, we’re going to make a small run of hardcovers for those of you who want one (like ME for example). You can preorder NOW, Wednesday Feb 3 —— Monday Feb 8 at midnight. We will then count the orders and give the printer the number on Tuesday, so this is a short window of opportunity. This book is an Abstract Studio exclusive and will not be available in stores. And there are differences in the cover for those in the know to appreciate. *wink* The price is $28.99 and yes that is too cheap but we love you so there you go. 🙂
