Where is Postal Sketches?

I found Chris Kawagiwa at WonderCon this past weekend. He asked where in the world the Postal Sketches book is. You may or may not be wondering as well. Life happened. My artists would receive the book and then not have time to complete a spread. It's understandable, so I decided I just wanted my book back.

Chris has always been enthusiastic about my project, and remains on board with going forward. We shall regroup and relaunch soon!

Proper Glass of Bubbly...

We had guest artist Christopher S. Murphy of Virtual Studio Farawaynearby honor us with a sketch. It seems he drew from that "calm" of the previous spread and derived a little "crazy."

Spread 51...

Inspired mostly by the melding colors in Rachel's spread, I decided to make a mess! I actually used three spreads in the sketchbook, covering the first and last with paint, and then cutting out my drawing in the middle. The Chinese characters on the right say chrysanthemum, which is what I drew/cut out.

Preview: spread 51...

Paint and paper cuts. My hand hurts now. Definitely worth it though.

Round 9...

Another year into this project and I'm still ecstatic every time I get my sketchbook back in the mail. We just finished round 8, so I thought I'd post a little recap of the spreads.

Spread 48

Inspired by the previous artwork which reminded me of a worm underground which reminded me of 'Tremors' so I decided to add my own spin to it. Who knows maybe they do exist somewhere :P

Lumbricus Spatium Anatomicae ("Space Worm Anatomy")

Spread 47
The image from the previous spread reminded me of teeth. Lots of teeth.And trying to escape from them.

There are few scenes in film that stick in my mind as sharply as the "cave collapse" escape in the Millennium Falcon in the Empire Strikes Back. The creature colloquially called the giant Space Worm is officially called an Exogorth (I looked it up!) and this one carries in its belly many remnants of previous meals. Some denizens include Mynocks, a whale-less Geppetto, TIE fighters, and a wayward pirate ship.

Bon Apetit~!
