It's Done.

The final illustration is done. On Sunday night I'll be getting my "about the artist" photo taken, and then all the book content will be finished. A few more days for proofing, and then it's off to the printer.

Time for whiskey, I think.

Details, Details.

So now that my book is nearly done, I need to start looking at the specific details for when I get it printed. For instance, there are two different paper stocks I can use: the 80-lb. matte-finish "traditional" paper, or the 100-lb. silk-finish premium stuff.

Personally, I'm leaning towards the premium, because it'll look and feel better, and it only adds about three bucks to the price of a single book. It is 35% heavier, though, so I'm assuming shipping costs will be higher.

The Key to It All.

Hey kids, I'm been playing with video again. Here's another layer-by-layer video, this time with music I threw together in Garageband:

Evidently I still need to learn some things about format, but bear with me. Soon you'll think I'm an award-winning movie director and shower me with riches.
