one of the things I've been trying to do with the Playwright, which is wrapped up except for a cover, and will be published in 2010, is to make it the brightest, most colourful book I have ever made. I have had enough of the purply brown. For me the rainbow!

The green and yellow play nicely while the red provides a compositional anchor. You do a whole lot with very little here. Great stuff, I look forward to seeing it on the shelves.

Nice art as always. Do you generally work in watercolor, gouache or some combination thereof? I've been a watercolor guy for a long time and just got into gouache. Great stuff for keeping control while working on cheaper, more absorbent paper (and for covering up mistakes.)

Monsieur Leotard was already very colourful.

Very nice. The lady in the one-piece puts me in mind of Jacques de Loustal, while retaining its essentially Campbellian qualities.

I've found that the more I paint, the more colorful I'm becoming. I've also gotten a thing for acrylics and gold leaf. Gold leaf is horrible for print of course, but I can't help it. I'm also getting more into design, which came from my newly revived studying of Chaykin and J.H. Williams III. I'm very much looking forward to seeing all your new work in wide spreed print.

It's basically watercolour though I always end up going in ove rthat with gouche. This time around I'm also heightening all the colours in photoshop and adding other kinds of effects such as patterns for wallpapers in rooms. I'm taking the colour work a few steps further.

It's been evolving. With the Batman book from which I showed a couple of panels on Thursday, i started in acrylics and by the end of I found I could be more free and spontaneous with watercolour. The lettering approach on that one was much too complicated and i figured out a simpler way in Fate of the Artist. Playwright is also different in that I'm painting over xeroxes of finished black ink drawings.
