Sorry for the mega post but this is the last chance I'll get till after Con.
So I will be selling my new book "Belle Du Jour" at booth 4800 at the San Diego Comicon from July 25th (preview night) to July 29th. I'll be sharing the booth with my good friends Scott Morse and Jeff Pidgeon.

The book itself measures 8 1/2" x 7" and is 96 pages, full color throughout. Hardcover. It will sell for $25.

I'm also offering a special limited edition that will contain an original piece of artwork attached to the inside front cover as a bookplate (The artwork can be removed without damaging the book or the art with a small amount of effort).
The attached bookplate will look something like this (only signed and numbered)

The special limited edition will sell for $60. The original art book plates will be numbered to 100 (of which I will have 70 with me) Here's the full selection of what will be available.

I'll have a catalog at the table showing all of the available bookplates to choose from. So that you can pick whichever one you like (on a first come first served basis that is).
And lastly, I'll also have the Rex Steele book ($10) and short film dvd ($15) available. Supplies are dwindling however.

Hope to see you in San Diego.

Ruff 'N Ready!

Thought I'd present these bookplates in a slightly different way, the blog is looking a little repetitive lateley.

And just a little peek at some of my materials.

Operation: Impossible

I'm afraid that all of the bookplates that I've posted so far have been for friends. The selection below represents the first of the original art bookplates that will be available to buy in the limited edition of my book. I'm really having a lot of fun making these things. So much fun in fact that I'm toying with the idea of publishing a book of bookplates for next years con.

A Dangerous Mission.

I wanted to give a call out to any artists out there who might be interested in donating art to the Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society. They are having an art sale to raise funds for their animal shelter, which is private and runs on donations alone. It's a great shelter, they have a very high adoption rate, and a very low if non existent euthanasia rate.

The fundraiser is called the "Purr-casso" (don't look at me, I didn't name it) as the art is to be cat themed.
The deadline for the registration was moved to JULY 20th. The deadline for submitting artwork is OCTOBER 15 and the event takes place on NOVEMBER 4TH at Hollis Street Project in Emeryville. The information about the details of artwork don't have to be accurate at this point (other than being cat related).

You can download the pdf forms HERE.

I'll be submitting a piece myself. I'll let you guys know when I do it.
