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.
An original art reward created for a backer of our Indiegogo campaign to fund the restoration of Craig’s original color art for ARIANE AND BLUEBEARD.
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.
