I'm completely TAKING OVER the cover of THE PHOENIX for FOUR WEEKS!!

Remember I mentioned a few weeks ago that The Phoenix Comic had given me the most awesome commission of my career?

Well today I can now reveal that the powers that be over at The Greatest Weekly Comic in the World came to me with a proposition: That for FOUR WEEKS in a ROW I could COMPLETELY take over the cover of the comic. And their one editorial note? "Go NUTS"

So that's exactly what I've done.

If you want to get this VERY special collection of covers, then you have just about 7 days to GO HERE and get ALL FOUR COLLECTOR ISSUES including 4 weeks of my tutorials, AND Von Doogan, plus 140 pages of incredible COMIC for £1!!

And if you like this style, I think you're probably going to like my Art of Stranski KICKSTARTER which is running HERE right now :)

It's TOMORROW!!!

Last call on THIS FREE LIVE ETHERINGTON BROTHERS EVENT happening here in bristol TOMORROW! Details of what books we'll have for the signing are HERE :)

The ART OF STRANSKI 100 PAGE BOOK with 3D CHAPTER and GLASSES now on KICKSTARTER!

 Okay pals, let's do this...


THE ART OF STRANSKI FULL COLOUR HARDBACK ARTBOOK with 3D CHAPTER and 3D GLASSES is now available
UNTIL MAY 5TH.

The Book

The Art of Stranski will be a 100 page full colour hardback book measuring 11.6" by 8.2". The book collects together several years of concept art and illustrations from my "lost" 1940s adventure, STRANSKI. The world of Stranski is far better seen than described, so before you go any further, check out an entire gallery of animated Stranski posters RIGHT HERE. 

The 3D Chapter and Glasses

The 3D chapter in the book features a selection of my favourite Stranski posters, painstakingly re-created as traditional 3D anaglyph images, just like they did it in the early '50s. Each copy of the book comes with custom Stranski 3D glasses, for viewing these special pages.

Shipping costs for customers outside the UK

For UK customers postage is FREE, but if you live outside the UK you'll need to add a shipping cost when you pledge, as detailed in the boxes on the right. I'm sorry it's expensive, but these books are HEAVY (especially the sketchbooks).

The Sketchbooks

In the higher tiers you can get my two 600 page Deluxe Collection Sketchbooks at a lower price than normal. These books are softback black and white MONSTERS, filled to the brim with thousands of my designs, concepts and illustrations. There are two great ways to sample the work in these books - either check out the original Kickstarter campaign for them HERE, or enjoy FREE previews of BOOK 2 HERE and BOOK 1 HERE.
A huge thank you for taking the time to watch the video and check out the campaign!

Now, just scroll down to choose your rewards, then go the kickstarter HERE and order your Stranski SWAG!... 

OMG
