Book of Wizards is DONE and will be off to the printer early next week!

You read that correctly! The book is done (aside from a few last minute tweaks and edits)!

It will be sent off to the printer some time early next week, and should be printed and shipped in late April! Here is the Kickstarter update:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/945275755/gateway-the-book-of-wizards/posts/784419

A lot of people ask me: "Will I be able to buy the book even if I didn't contribute to the Kickstarter?" Answer: YES!

Just enter your e-mail into the box on the right and you will get updates from this website. When it becomes available, I will be selling the book on my etsy site, and hopefully it will be available on amazon too!

Stay tuned!

Whew! At long last, the sketchbook has been sent off to the printer. It took a while navigating all the new stuff I am having to learn about book publishing/printing. But hey, now I will be more prepared to get it right the first time when it comes to getting the main "Book of Wizards" printed.

Here are the details: The sketchbook (entitled "Sean Andrew Murray - Sketchbook Collection Volume 01") is a collection of sketches from my sketchbook from the past 6 or 7 years. I tried to choose the best pages, but also choose pages that will give you some insight into how I work and think. Many of the sketches represent ideas that relate to Gateway, and many of them are the early sketches that eventually have developed into pieces for the "Book of Wizards".

It is nearly 100 pages long and will be available at Spectrum Fantastic Art Live in early May.
IF you happen to be attending SFAL, please stop by my booth and buy your own copy, or if you are a Kickstarter pledger, pick up your pledge-reward copy! I will also have prints available of many of the pieces you see on my blog and portfolio site.

I will also make the sketchbook available for purchase through this site and my blog, so stay tuned.


 Stay tuned for more info!
