Signing the “bonus” artifact prints that we recently offered. They will ship out later this week.
In an all-new podcast, P. Craig Russell discusses the crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the restoration of the original hand-colored art for his graphic-novel adaptation of Maurice Maeterlinck’s ARIANE AND BLUEBEARD.
We are pleased to launch our SEVENTH crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for the scanning, restoration and preservation of the original color art that P. Craig Russell created for his 1988 graphic-novel adaptation of Maurice Maeterlinck’s ARIANE AND BLUEBEARD.
More information on the campaign—and our great pledge perks—is at the following:
From Wayne Alan Harold’s Tumblr:
I’m almost finished scanning all of the original pages for P. Craig Russell’s 1996 Dr. Strange story, “What Is It That Disturbs You, Stephen?” . . . which is actually a “remake” of his mid-70s Doctor Strange Annual #1. Stay tuned for more scans of other great stuff!
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.
And so it begins: For who-knows-how-long, I’m going to be scanning and archiving EVERY PIECE and PAGE of P. Craig Russell’s amazing artwork, scanning from the actual original art whenever possible. We’ll also be launching our first PCR Color Restoration Kickstarter campaign later this spring to help fund the meticulous restoration of Craig’s hand-colored projects from the 80s—starting with “Ariane and Bluebeard.” The pledge incentives are going to be amazing!
Stay tuned for more details on the first PCR Color Restoration Kickstarter campaign!
