Jay Zehngebot Acetates

Yet another teaser for Book Two: Jay Zehngebot sent this jpg of his Hydrus in progress. This shows 3 of the 5 acetates for his silkscreen print. With his unique approach to coloring this is sure to be a gorgeous final piece.

UPDATE: March, 2008. Yep, it's gorgeous.

BEASTS! Book One highlights reel...

The paperback edition of Beasts! Book One won't be out until Book Two hits the stands in late 2008. In the meantime I thought I'd (re)post the five double-page pieces created for Book One...

Jordan Crane

Dave Cooper

Tim Biskup

Souther Salazar

Tony Millionaire

BOOK 2: A Jasor Outtake.

The artist Jasor made this preliminary illustration of his beast, the Barbegazi. (The final art appearing in the book differs.)

Lizz Hickey Proof.

Lizz Hickey made a dense little 10"x10" world for Beasts v.2. Above is just the first step of her intense etching/painting/drawing. The final piece will have you crosseyed taking in all the tiny horror.

Meanwhile, legendary alt-comics godhead Peter "HATE" Bagge dropped by today, bringing with him an acrylic painting to be scanned for the book. I'm not sure if I've seen his paintings published anywhere so it's a particular Beasts treat.
