The Black Book

Okay. So, most people at this point know that I like to draw women. I really do. There is no big Freudian reason to why I like drawing them so much (well, I'm sure there probably is, but whatever), but pretty much since my hormones went into overdrive I've been drawing lots and lots of women. That said, recently my good friend (and artist extraordinaire) Alberto Ruiz asked me if I wanted to do an artbook that he would publish. Cue lightbulb above head. So for the past couple of months, I've been secretly working on an artbook. Of. . .you guessed it. I've been wanting to do one for the longest time but never had the resources, time, drive or balls to make it happen. Thanx to Mr. Ruiz, I at least have the balls part.

The name of my project is The Black Book. It will be a full color, 48 page hardcover artbook full of lovely ladies of all shapes, sizes and color. I'm maybe 85% done and super psyched about it. I hope to have it done and available for SDCC (hopefully) and Wizard World Chicago (definitely). After that, in stores and available thru Kharupt.com. I will share more info later, but until then, here are a few sneak peeks.

Thanx guys. As soon as I have more details I will make sure to pass them along to everyone else. I literally just passed in the last of the files to the publisher on friday so this thing is fresh.

Oh and comikxguy -- Alberto has a number of high profile guys putting out books this summer. I'm just lucky (and totally not worthy) to be one of them. Stay tuned.

Your judicious use of lines, capturing the full figured form of the creature we call 'woman' is truly breath-taking to behold.

par excellence
