Hand-Lettered Fables

Fables art

P. CRAIG RUSSELL: Page one of a three-page Fables story I did for Vertigo three years ago. I drew in all of the word balloons on the original art even though it was to be lettered later on the computer. That left empty balloons and caption boxes on the original pages. So this past weekend, while I was in Virginia Beach visiting family, I gave the three pages to artist/letterer Galen Showman to re-letter on the originals. This way, if ever I sell the pages, the collector will have the fully finished piece, sans empty balloons. Looks better that way.
