The books have been printed, the Sketch Edition drawings have been created and now it’s the official “last call” for the limited quantity of books that are still available!
This epic hardcover volume gives you an as-yet-unseen look at the master artist’s actual drawing process with figure studies, character designs, expression and gesture studies and more. Every stunning illustration is meticulously scanned from Craig’s personal, private sketchbooks, and the artist himself provides illuminating background information and notes.
Standard, Signature and Sketch Edition books are now available for purchasing via Indiegogo. The signed and numbered Sketch Editions all feature an ORIGINAL DRAWING of The Sandman, Elric or Brunhilde by P. Craig Russell! Keep it in the limited edition book or display it proudly on your wall or in your gallery.

Artifact scan of the original pencils. This image was used on the cover of ELRIC #1 (Pacific Comics, 1983). We just scanned it for a French publisher who is putting together a huge book on the history of fantasy.
P. CRAIG RUSSELL: Just sent a jpeg of these covers to my art director at Harper Collins to plead my case for a similar format for the upcoming single volume edition of Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book graphic novel. With so many artist credits to be listed on the cover I’m suggesting there be no distracting art behind the many names. We’ll see.
Signing the “bonus” artifact prints that we recently offered. They will ship out later this week.
