WAYNE ALAN HAROLD: Currently in the midst of preserving/restoring Craig’s’s hand-colored Jungle Book art from the early 80s. Image 1 shows the extensive “mottling” that has occurred with the elephant statue’s coloring—a lot of the original coloring is physically rotting in a similar manner. Image 2 shows the restored color combined with line art that’s newly scanned from the original inked pages.
We’ll be publishing a “Restoration Edition” of the color Jungle Book stories after we’re through with our line of oversized “Fine Art Editions”—more info on the latter is at https://igg.me/at/pcrjunglebook/x/718844
P. CRAIG RUSSELL: Finished pencils for the cover to our upcoming book from Dark Horse, Neil Gaiman’s “The Problem of Susan and Other Stories.” I’m doing a 26 page adaptation, script and art to the title story and a four page adaptation of Neil’s poem “Locks.” I also did script and layouts for his “October in the Chair” that Scott Hampton has completed some lushly beautiful artwork for. Also included is an eight pager by Paul Chadwick of a story by Neil that has been floating about for some time and has found a happy home in this 64 page book.
