Lift Off: The Art of Airships


It's been a long time! We're finally finishing up Amulet 3 this weekend, which is really exciting. I can't believe how proud of this book I am, and I don't think I've worked harder on anything in my life. The book won't be out until September of this year, but once it hits shelves I think it's really going to be a hit. We've gone above and beyond with this one in just about every way possible.

It's nice to be able to breathe a short sigh of relief before we start on Book 4 in March. In the meantime I can finally sit down and do my Flight story!

Unfortunately this week turned into a bit of a perfect storm with the Amulet deadline, my sisters visiting from Minneapolis, and a new show at Gallery Nucleus which I am super excited to be a part of!

The show is called Lift Off: The Art of Airships, which should be fairly self-explanatory. It features some absolutely incredible artists, which has me feeling incredibly lucky to have any space on the wall for my meager entry...

That said, I'm really proud of this one, and I hope it resonates with someone as well as it did with me as I was working on it.

Weirdest thing to be reading "Lines and Colors" and say, "Hey! I know that guy!" You've been doing some really Awesome work man!

I adore those little seagulls. Fun times with the fjord-landing dirigibles. : )

I just wanted to also say I took a look at your folio pdf. Is there a reason your name/contact info isn't in there anywhere?
