hey wonderful followers. thanks again for all the help regarding the art theft from last week. i'll keep you posted on what happens!
i'm thinking about that artbook i mentioned a few journal entries back. i have some ideas of how i want to handle the content, which includes a few exclusive pieces, tutorials/walkthroughs and probably a dvd showing my painting process. i want to make it happen! but one thing i've decided is to look for a publisher in the U.S. it would be great since that would make the book altogether more affordable for many of you - it's so expensive to ship from europe! so i wanted to ask if any of you guys could suggest any american publishers or knew any companies that make interesting artbooks that aren't too expensive/gigantic? any tips would be great. thank youuuuuu for reading! :)

No matter the cost, I would incredibly love to buy an art book or video from you.  Have always really enjoyed your style and approach + especially your amazing coloring skills, so to see you either in action while painting (would be freaking amazing..) or an art book with tips and techniques would be just as incredible and valuable to me.  So please do this and how can I find out where to buy this book when it becomes available!?  :D

Dark Horse is a fantastic Publisher and does a great job with their artbook devision. I highly recommend them.

I think on the pricing, it depends alot on how you want to present your artbook. If you want a hardcover book, obviously, it will cost more than a softcover book. But with a softcover book, the chances of the pages falling out are greater depending on the quality of the printer.

There's also the size of the book that you need to think about. I have an hardcover artbook that bigger than 30cm high and has about 30-45 pages in it cost me 50$ to have it. Another one was a softcover artbook, I has more than 150 pages in it and it's about 10-20 cm height. And I got it for the same price! So those are things to consider.

Regarding american publishers, there's Flesk Publications, Brandstudio Press, Stuart NG Books that I know of. For bigger publishers, there's Image comics and Dark Horse. I know that Les Humanoïdes Associés, Comix Buro and CFSL / Café Salé has a good distribution in the USA even though those are European Publishers.

Anyway, I would definetly buy your artbook and I support your idea of including exclusive art and turorials!
