Hey everyone, Ben here.
Just wanted to drop by quickly to let you all know that things are well underway!
My wonderful art school intern and I are currently touching up each and every page of the book to get them ready for print. Don’t worry I’m not “George Lucas”ing this thing, we’re simply adjusting the level should on all 300 pages to make the blacks blacker and the whites whiter. You’d be amazed how much more crud and smudge and dust and eraser marks you can see on these pages in 2018 on 2018 screens and 2018 prints. Things have come a long way and these pages needed just a bit of dusting off. It’s a simple process in photoshop, basically, IMAGE > ADJUSTMENTS > LEVELS - and then you slightly slide the black slider right and the white slider left and viola! But there are a lot of pages...
In addition to that I’ve finally figured out what I want my new cover to look like. I’ve got it all sketches out and can’t wait to reveal it to you, I think it’s a pretty cool concept. There was a lot of internal pressure to make sure I got it perfect, this book holds a special place in my brain and I didn’t want to mess it up. That’s coming soon. :)
I’m checking back in with Kevin soon as well. He’s one of the busiest people on earth though and we’re all working insanely hard to get our book, Drawing Blood, completely done by July 1st, so I’m not going to bother him just yet. But as soon as I have that from him I’ll definitely share it with you all!
Anyway, back to work for me! Just wanted to let you know that things are indeed coming together and on schedule
Thanks again everyone!
Talk to you soon!
