I am in the middle of trying to put together the first collection of TLZ pages. I am pretty excited about printing a book and I wanted to share the results with you. This is the back cover:
I spent a lot of time trying to come up with a design that I can use on every book that represents the story and design of TZL. For example future volumes will have this same layout but different characters and colors.
I have decided that I am going to start releasing TLZ in 40 to 50 page collections. I am hoping to have the first volume ready for sale by the beginning of October. If anybody is interested in this please let me know, leave a comment here or on the Facebook page. Now commitment yet, just looking to get an idea of how many to print.
I have had some people ask about contributing fan art of TLZ so I have decided to add a Fan Art section to the site. Anybody who wants to contribute some TLZ art this is where I will be displaying it.
First up Tom Rasch drew this awesome picture of Granville. We did an art swap so I will be doing one for his animated web series Black Alpha!
I just wanted to take a moment to give a big well deserved congrats to my creative partner at Creephouse Comics, William Tooker. He was recently picked up by Trestle Press to publish his prose. His first book with them will be Slouching Towards Bethlehem. Will is a fantastic writer and I couldn’t be happier for him! Good work sir!
I am in the process of coming up with some cool merchandise to help promote TLZ. I have a few ideas and I think they can be pretty cool. What I want to know is what kind of stuff would you like to see? Please leave a comment here or on Facebook and let me know if you have any specific TLZ item in mind that you might think is cool or couldn’t live without!
THis weekend I will be appearing at Colorado Cutthroat Connection. They will be playing video games all day here and featuring some great local artists. I will have prints, books and sketches for sale and I will be taking commissions all day. We will be having some fun so come on down if you are in the neighborhood and say hello.
