The Art of The Art Book
Dear Insane Children,
American and Lulu here with an update on the Art Book. It's such a fantastic update, Lulu's afraid it might damage her eyes, so she's taken special precautions:
Since the last update, wherein I pleaded for help with the art book, a magnificent new artist has been discovered and added to the project. Everyone, please say "Hello!" to Alex "AlexCee" Crowley...
Alex is a long-time die-hard Alice fan, and recalls vividly his first encounter with the game series in high school, when coming across a magazine advert for the original Alice game. Since then, he's been hooked. Both the original Alice and A:MR have been massive artistic influences, and he's followed her adventures ever since. He currently works as a senior designer for an advertising agency/record label/touring agency, and freelances for cool things when he can.
In just a few weeks Alex has already outlined a spectacular vision for the Alice: Otherlands art book - one that fits together nicely with the Alice: Madness Returns art book... even being the same size and format, so that they two books will fit neatly together into a self-made collection.
Here's a sample of Alex's ideas for various elements in the book. All work in progress...
You can check out more of Alex's work and keep an eye out for sneak peaks at his progress on the Otherlands art book via his Facebook and Instagram pages:
I've got in-hand a sample version of the first chapter of the art book, and I have to say... it looks great!
Ok, Lulu, you can take off your glasses now.
On the animation front, Ed and team report they made some solid progress over last weekend. Fingers crossed they'll wrap their production soon!
From Shanghai with Edible Glasses,
American & Lulu
