People (well, especially people non artistically inclined like myself), are often curious as to how the artist got from a blank sheet of paper to the finished product. Well, GRAPHIC CONTENT is happy to bring you behind-the-scenes of Brian Bolland's cover to JACK OF FABLES #39.
What started as a pencil sketch, gets inked, added to, more detailed and brought to life with color. Simple, right?
“I’d recommend this one to anyone who enjoys contemporary urban fantasy. It’s wonderful to see the ancient settings and tales that are the foundation for a story that is both modern and timeless.”
—Robin Hobb, author of The Soldier Son Trilogy, and The Farseer Trilogy
“Simply put, the book is utterly enchanting, an elegant delight of magic and whimsy, and heartache—and I love it—I love it so much I would take it to a desert island with me, and be perfectly content.”
—Marjorie Liu, The New York Times Bestselling author of the Dirk and Steele series and Hunter Kiss
For all you Bill Willingham fans, today is all about Bill: master storyteller and sometime artist. The panel begins at noon. I hope to see many of you there.
For those of you who couldn’t make it to the show or if you missed any of the DC COMICS panels, or, you just want to relive the experience again, you can find photos, podcasts from the panels, and other information, here.
As always, THE FABLES FORUM was a full of fun and fan interaction as Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, Matthew Sturges, Steve Leialoha, Lee Loughridge, Shawn McManus, Andrew Pepoy, Chris Roberson, Chrissie Zullo and Todd Klein discussed all things FABLES.
At last night's 2009 Eisner Awards Vertigo won in a couple of categories:
Best Cover Artist James Jean for FABLES and Dark Horse's The Umbrella Academy
and Best Writer Bill Wllingham for FABLES
So there will be plenty of celebrating at today's panel!
I hope you're enjoying the show!
And no, I’m not referring to the band. I’m referring to Mr. Dark, you know, the creepy guy who destroyed Fabletown and now has a bunch of zombies working for him. Who is he? What’s his story and how did he end up in that magical box he was released from not too long ago? Find out about his dark past and what a young man named Dunster Happ, who spent centuries at the Black Monastery, has to do with it.
It’s 9:36 am in New York City. Do you know where your freelancers are?
