New picture, finally.

Wow. Even I've been finding my blog boring lately. No pictures. So here's one:

It's the color rough (Rough. I can't emphasize that enough.) of the cover to my next book of monster stories, Frankenstein Takes the Cake. Which I'm still working on, and which will be out in the fall of next year.

GREAT GOOGLY MOOGLY! Another Frank book! Whooooopeeee! I haven't been this excited since...well...since Frank first made a sandwich!

Fantastic, thanks for posting this Adam, very cool.

Go easy on the term "rough" here Adam. You're making all our "roughs" look like "haggards"

Bill Ferguson said...

That is good news (the sequel). I also quite enjoyed the article on you in the latest issue of Realms of Fantasy - and am glad that you haven't given up art entirely for the written word!

I promise not to go so long without posting an image. This has been such a nice response.

No, this isn't as rough as a color sketch of mine would usually be. Heck, I don't even usually make color sketches. But it had to be nice enough to print sort of small in the Harcourt advance catalog. I emphasized that it was rough for my Editor's sake–she asked that I make that clear in the post.

Yes, Diantres, it's digital over a traditional sketch. I'm enjoying my new Wacom tablet. The final will probably be oil paint over a print of this sketch.

Thanks, everyone!

Holy dam! Another Frankenstein book? You're one of the few doing something original for the children's book market. Your work is amazing! And I can't wait for this book (I already bought the first one for two different nephews and am looking for an excuse to buy it again!)

Great work Adam! I love the look on his face! Priceless :)

MotherReader said...

Wow! I can't wait. I read parts of the first one to a fifth grade class, and they freakin' loved it. I've never had a better reception. In fact, could you work a little faster, 'cause I think next year is too long to have to wait.

I can't wait!

Dude.
I rarely get as excited as I just got when I saw that. Rough or right, just get it out there.
