OK, sorry it has been a while since you have heard from me, but things are coming along apace with Gateway. Here is what I have to report:
- Final Illustrations for "The Book of Wizards" are about 50% finished, with new ones being completed every week, and getting faster.
- Plans are underway to have the sketch-book printed and available around April of next year, maybe sooner. I am in the process of choosing the sketches I want to include in the book, and getting them all cleaned up and ready to be printed.
- I have purchased a table at Spectrum Live! on May 17 - 19th. Spectrum Fantastic Art Live is a major convention of Science Fiction and Fantasy art, organized by the publishers of "Spectrum" which is an annual juried competition of the best in Science Fiction and Fantasy artwork. I plan on having the sketchbook, and lots of prints available for purchase at the show, plus perhaps a sneak peek at the main book as well... who knows... :). If you are going to be there, I will have everyone's name on a list, and if you want to pick up either your copy of the sketchbook or your print(s), I will be able to fulfill those rewards at that time.
- Early discussions have begun with several of the writers who will be contributing to the Gateway Anthology. There are some pretty damn awesome folks lined up for this, and I will announce who they are sometime in the near future.
Below you will see some of the latest wizards to be completed. So much more exciting stuff ahead. The next 6 months are going to be thrilling and scary all at once.
Thanks again for all the support! More updates to come!
The plan is still to have "The Book of Wizards
