Mockup cover design for The Art of Paradigm Shift

Hey, everyone! I've been having fun putting together the Art of Paradigm Shift book, and I thought I'd give you a quick sneak peek at it. Here are a few screenshots from InDesign.

     If you'd like to keep a closer eye on the process of getting the books finalized, I'll be posting regular behind the scenes updates to my mailing list for the rest of the month as I prepare the books to send off to the printer.

Okay, it's official. We've DOUBLED the goal. This means the Art of PS book is happening! Everyone will get a copy. Digital versions for those of you with ebooks, and physical copies for everyone who ordered the physical books! 

Guess I'll be calling the printer tomorrow.  =)

Thank you so much, everyone! 


2nd Stretch goal is so close!

The new art book will feature full color cover art & poster illustrations

We're only a few pledges away from hitting stretch goal number #2 — a new PS art book!

Over the years I've posted a lot of behind the scenes sketches, character studies, werewolf transformation designs, and "How To's" on drawing comics. I've also created a number of full-color posters related to Paradigm Shift that I've brought to conventions and other appearances.

I want to compile all this extra material into a new art book to go with the brand new collected volumes. It will include the contents of both sketchbooks, the "How to Draw Comics" mini guide. It will also feature full color reproductions of the poster images, the original covers of Paradigm Shift Parts 1, 2 & 3, as well as the the new cover paintings.

If the campaign can top $10,000, I will green light this new bonus collection, and everyone who backs the campaign at $25 or above will receive a copy at no extra charge as a THANK YOU!

The book will also compile character sketches, werewolf designs and "how to's"...

I continue to be blown away by the support for this campaign. Thanks to everyone who's backed the PS Kickstarter so far. You are all amazing!


We hit our first stretch goal!

Achievement Unlocked! Sometime this afternoon we surpassed the first stretch goal! That means the full cost the print run is covered, now. This is awesome!

So... Everybody gets ART!  If you've ordered a physical copy of the book, you'll get an original inked sketch with your order. Even if you ordered the ebook, I'll throw in a digital treat for you, too. This will be fun!

Next, if we can get to $10,000, I'll print up a art book that will compile all the character studies, werewolf designs and color covers and posters I've done for PS over the years. 

Please tell you friends about the campaign, and I think we will do it!

This is amazing! I really had no idea that this was how it would play out. I'm excited and grateful and honored for all your support.
