It's official. Barron's has decided to buy the fantasy art book for publication in January 2010. The working title is "Scan and Trace: Fantasy Templates". Rafi, the artist, is fabulous. I wish I could share some of the art used in the proposal, but I'm afraid you'll have to make do with this link.
Barron's boasts a very strong line of how-to books for fantasy and graphic novel illustrators. But nothing quite like what Rafi and I are about to do. Can't wait.
Cheers and big, big grins,
