Re: STUDIOBLINKTWICE! The BIG thread!! New images every week!

Hey folks! So, as mentioned the other week, I have a brand new limited edition print featuring STRANKSI as part of the Howies/Ink-Dot exhibition. The prints are strictly limited to a run of 50, and quite a few of them went at the opening night last week here in Bristol, which is nice! The show is on in the Howies store here in Bristol until December, but if You can't get to the show, you can buy the prints online through the ink-dot site HERE.

Here's the blurb about the prints:

"Giclee printing is essentially very high resolution print onto an archival paper using light fast UV stable inks. This gives giclee pieces an extremely high tolerance to environmental factors and give a life time guaranty. The prints produced for ink dot by Hello Blue are all printed on to 315gsm 100% cotton, acid and bleach free archival quality paper. They are then coated in a protective spray that gives the prints an added level of UV and moisture protection. Each print is lightfast for between 75 - 100 years worst case scenario. If kept sympathetically there is almost no limit as to how long they would last."

Here's a piccie of the print (which is a 3 -colour print, with all the tones being made up of Halftoning) along with a few snaps from the opening night of the show...

Lorenzo!

P.S. Oh, and a HUGE cheers to all those who came out to the Secret Wars battle on Saturday night, was a lot of fun drawing against some SERIOUSLY talented London scribblers, and to top it all we were lucky enough to win! Lovely.

Hey folks, a little fly-by posting today to invite you all to the opening night this Friday (11th December) of the Christmas Group Show at the Weapon of Choice Gallery here in Bristol. The line-up as usual features a killer group of artists, all of whom will have new work for sale, which you can take home on the day of purchase, to allow peeps to buy artworks as prezzies in time for Chrimbo. I've worked up a new painting just for the exhibition (progress pics attached), while I limber up for my solo show at the gallery in the New Year (news of that soon!).

So, come on down, enjoy some mulled wine, mince pies, check out the art, and just bask in all things festive and inky! The show runs from 11th Dec until 10th January, details on the gallery blog HERE.

See you there!

Lorenzo!

Hey folks! Well, it's here, the yuletide season! There's holly on my drawing board, Bobby has tinsel on his typewriter, and all at the Etherington Manor is festive and delightful! We're just about to hunker down in fromt of the great fireplace to roast some chestnuts and read some comics, but before we bolt and lock up the huge doors of the old studio for the holidays I wanted to come in and wish you all a very fine Christmas!

There's only one bit of news that simply can't wait until after chrimbo, and that's that 2010 will see the release of the first Monkey Nuts book! Monkey Nuts and The Diamond Egg of Wonders will drop in the autumn next year, published by the wondeful David Fickling Books and the mighty Random House, and as you can expect, we're pretty excited about it! More news very sooooooon!

In the meantime, stay warm, stay happy, and I'll see you all again after the holidays!

Lorenzo-ho-ho!

It's always nice around the New Year to invest a little quality time in a good spring clean. With that in mind we have decided to reboot our online presence with a sparkling new all-inclusive blog. Since 2004 we have crafted our sequential adventures under the Studio Blink Twice banner but from this post forth all projects will be released under The Etherington Brothers label ... which makes sense when you think about it.

GO HERE - to view our new blogspot and sign up as a follower! You can stay up to date with ease by simply clicking on the 'subscribe to' link at the end of the posts, or clicking the 'Follow' link beneath our tabs on the right for updates via Google, Twitter, Yahoo, AIM, Netlog or OpenID. You'll then be informed whenever we update the blog. This will replace our old mailing list.

You'll still be able to find our gallery on Deviantart.com and our forum postings on Conceptart.com under the old SBT heading. Studioblinktwice.com will shortly close it's doors for good ... it's been a fun ride but it's time for a change.

So from now onwards all news relating to any project involving one or more Etherington will be released on the new blog: from Star Wars and Transformers Strips to solo art shows, from 700 page sketchbooks to illustrated novels, from paper to pixel to print, and from Malcolm Magic to Monkey Nuts to ... oops! Almost gave too much away!

Happy New year to you all, see you in 2010 with tons more good stuff!

Lorenzo!

Hey house', cheers bro! Glad it made you smile!

So, there's lots coming this year, all of it very exciting, and the first of which is ONE MAN ARMY, a solo show of my work at the excellent Weapon of Choice gallery here in Bristol in March. Expect brand new original paintings, exclusive prints only available at the show, and other treats besides...

...more news about the show very soon!

So, the time between now and the release of Monkey Nuts and The Diamond Egg of Wonders is gonna whizz by, so I'll be giving you little previews and sneak peeks from now until then. Here's a little shot of the Muckybutt Temple marudering through the chumptown docs...

This first Monkey Nuts book is of course part of the incredible new DFC Library which is being released from David Fickling Books and Random House. The first three titles are already available for pre-order on amazon, and having seen these books in the flesh yesterday, I can say that they look AMAZING. Click on any of the following titles to check them out on amazon, and maybe even pre-order yourself a copy! MEZOLITH, GOOD DOG BAD DOG, SPIDER MOON.

Oh, and on another note, top man and uber-talented colourist Scotty Simpson sent me an awesome piece of colouring, using one of my recent lineart sketches as a basis. It's very cool, and you can check it out HERE. If anyone else wants to have a go at digitally colouring one of my pics, just drop me a message, I'll be pleased to post up a link to it here and in my blog. Same goes for fan art etc...

Right, that's all for now, cheers!

Lorenzo!

So, last summer I was lucky enough to work on a few interesting projects including an animated series and a special project for a computer games studio. This monster was created for the latter, and I thought I'd show you the stages of it's creation, hope you enjoy!

More soon!

Hey Arrow! Thank you so much pal!

Something different today, those of you with REALLY good memories may remember a few years ago me posting a few pics of me and my pa working on the Kustom I was building. Well, I'm selling the ole' monster, and I thought I'd show a little piccie I took a few days ago at about 5:30am on a very chilly morning here in Bris, enjoy!

Back soon with news of my upcoming show!

Between now and the opening night on Friday 26th March (to which you're ALL invited!) I'm going to be showing you some sneak previews of the work that will be on offer. The show will be split into two parts, one half being a series of 7 brand new paintings by me'self, and the other half will be a series of exclusive new prints. To create the prints I've gone back into my archives and am pulling out a selection of my favorite illustrations that have never been coloured, and I'm colouring them up, and laying them up as brand new designs. Each of these will be sold framed, signed and numbered ONE OF ONE! That's right folks, there will only ever be ONE of each of the prints produced! Now that's MY kind of exclusivity! The first pictured here, features Serenity from MOON!

More very VERY soon!

Well, as those who follow our Blog will know, my bro Robin is writing for Star Wars comic here in the UK, and the latest issue is just out!
Aside form all the ba-zillion books we're working on together, he also found time last year to write comics for Transformers, Terminator Salvation, Dreamworks Monsters Vs Aliens and several more in between! And he's already got several very exciting series in the works for 2010! Congrats, bro, couldn't be more proud!

Secondly, I'm putting together a very big new sketchbook at the moment, that will hopefully be launched at the Bristol con in May. Here's a little pic (done for my pa last year) from the pages...!

Cheers!

Lorenzo!

So, those of you who are regular readers will remember me talking about signing contracts last year on a new book. Well, we've been given the go-ahead to announce it, and on March 1st we'll be doing just that! What I can tell you at the moment is that it's being published through Random House and David Fickling Books, publishers of our up-coming Monkey Nuts books.

Stay tuned, and be back here on March 1st for the official announcement.

Lots more coming between now and then, including more previews of my One Man Army exhibition...

So, the clock is ticking away, and it's now just under 5 weeks until the opening of my Solo exhibition One Man Army here in Bristol. As mentioned before, the show will feature 7 new paintings and a series of new prints, all limited to truly exclusive runs of ONE. That's right, there'll be just one of each of the prints, so if you get one, you know it's properly exclusive, and yours will be the only wall it'll be hanging on! Today's web flyer features one of these prints, enjoy!

Details of how to get to the gallery can be found HERE

It’s the 1st of the Month and it’s a Monday, which can only mean one thing - BIG PHAT CHUNKY COMIC NEWS DAY!

Here's our announcement from the blog this morning:

"Regular readers of our blog, and our former studioblinktwice blogspot, will have heard tell of numerous book deals that we completed last year. We’ve already announced our first volume, Monkey Nuts: The Diamond Egg of Wonders (more exciting info on that one coming soon) but today is NEW book day!

We are currently to be found embedded in our little Bristol studio, working side by side and living off a diet of tea, coffee, cream soda and toast as we painstakingly produce page after page for our next sequential adventure - a bande dessinée format graphic tale to be released as part of the 2011 DFC Library line-up.

Entitled BAGGAGE, it tells the tale of … oooooooooooh! You almost tricked us there! No, this is one story that is best savoured in small delectable slices and as such we will be drip-feeding you exclusives and teasers each month...

To whet the appetite (lot of eating references today ... must be hungry!) here’s our promo piece. Paint your desktop with this bad boy and spread the word. The BAGGAGE is coming home..."
