Unboxing P. Craig Russell's Jungle Book and Other Stories from Wayne Alan Harold on Vimeo.

This beautiful 12″X17″ oversized hardcover features complete stories scanned from P. Craig Russell’s stunning original art! While appearing to be in black & white, each page has been scanned in color to recreate as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—including blue pencils, notes, art corrections and more. Pages are reproduced at near-original size on heavy paper stock to provide fans, aficionados and collectors with the best possible reproductions.

Work In Progress

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

Meanwhile, Back In The Jungle

WAYNE ALAN HAROLD: Still working on restoring Craig’s original coloring for The Jungle Book. ​Just wanted to post a scan of a page of his “raw” coloring. This one is in surprisingly good shape, but I’ll still have to touch it up a bit. Getting these images onto my iPad Pro is making things easier—using the Apple Pencil really helps to streamline this type of workflow.
