So, as you know, we'll be launching our Massive new 600 page Deluxe Sketchbook at the Bristol Comic Expo on Saturday 22nd May. While we were adamant that no copies of the book would go out before that date (the book goes on worldwide release on Monday 24th May), there are some people to whom you never say no!

So when Jamie Smart asked us for an advance copy, and requested we do a little doodle of a few of his characters in it, we said HELL YEAH! Jamie is a long-time Etherington Bros buddy, and not only are we very proud to know a guy as ridiculously talented and prolific as he is, we're also very glad to be able to call him a friend. Jamie has posted up a very lovely blog about the book, and has even posted a load of photos from inside it, so those of you wanting a sneak peek had better check it out HERE!

THEN go check out Jamie's world HERE, it's massive, sprawling and not a little bit weird, just like we like it!

Oh, and Jamie has a very VERY exciting new book coming out from Scholastic in called Find Chaffy, expect a rather special piece of Etherington Bros fan art soon...!

Okay, this is the BIG one.

As you know, in three weeks our massive sketchbook is released, September sees the launch of Monkey Nuts: The Diamond Egg of Wonders, and in Spring 2011 Baggage comes out. We're also about to sign contracts on another new series of books which will be something different again, but more of that at a later date.

So, we're pretty busy.

Perhaps then, what you wouldn't expect in the middle of all this would be for us to launch a totally free online comic adventure of seriously epic proportions.

But that's exactly what we're gonna do.

GO HERE, where you can follow the action using Google, Yahoo, Twitter AIM Netlog or OpenID and see the whole thing unfold.

More news VERY soon, and if you're REALLY smart, you might even be able to twig what it's all about. My Precious.

Lorenzo!

So, here we go, we've been working on this book for over a year now, and I'm approaching the halfway mark on the artwork, so I thought it was time we showed you a little teeny-tiny teaser from inside the book.

And you can check out additional production shots HERE!

More big news very soon!

Whoop! The cover of the latest issue of the awesome Venue magazine features an exclusive design drawn by yours truly featuring a big blue APE-THING!

Inside you can also read a little interview with me rambling on about all things comic related, as well as lots of info about the upcoming Bristol comic con (less than two weeks to go!).

Many thanks to the lovely guys at Venue for allowing one of my characters to dance all across their product!

More very soon, including a sneak peek at a character from The Lore of the Things!

Okay, let's do this.

Following the launch of the book at the Bristol Comics Expo this weekend (where we sold out of our stock!) I'm very proud to announce that my massive 600 page El Sketchbook Lorenzo Deluxe Collection: 2005 - 2010 is now on sale online through our brand new store HERE!

This book is a monster, packed with literally thousands of separate illustrations, sketches, concepts, design sheets, tutorials and comic pages, many of which have never been seen before! Monsters, robots, grrrrls,  entire worlds, it's all in here for the extremely affordable price of just £24.95. The book is available worldwide, and as it's printed in a number of locations across the globe, you won't have to pay too much for delivery, no matter where you live!

If you needed any further convincing, check out this little preview, which barely scratches the surface of what's contained within the book's pages! And if you want to see even more, check out Jamie Smart's awesome review of the book HERE!

Enjoy!

Lorenzo!

More new stuff! Well, I'm very proud and excited to announce that I'll be releasing a brand new limited edition print as part of the awesome Ink-Dot Escape exhibition, which opens here in Bristol on June 17th in the Howies gallery on Queens Road.

Anyone who remembers the last ink-dot exhibition just before Christmas will know how exceptionally high the standard of both the art and the prints are in these shows. If you're free on the evening of the 17th then I thoroughly advise that you head down, and head down EARLY, as there were queues all evening to get in to the last launch night.

Those of you who can't make it to the show, or live outside the UK need fear not though, as the prints will be available to buy through the Ink-Dot site once the show launches. The prints are being produced by those extremely talented gents at Hello Blue, and will be high definition giclee prints on beeeeutiful 315gsm 100% cotton, acid and bleach free archival quality paper. Seriously, those guys make niiiice product!

In the meantimes, enjoy this little sneak-peek at a few details from my print, I'll show you a little more sooooon, and if you just can't wait, there are a few of my Stranski prints still left from the last show, which can be bought through our brand new store HERE!

Oh, and don't forget to drop by the DFC stand at the MCM expo this weekend!

Happy Friiiiiiiday! Here's a little step-by-step character design, Lorenzo stylee.

This is for a little teeny-tiny Lore of the Things story we're doing to support the awesome Birdsong anthology, a superb little title that's chock-a-block with upcoming UK comics creators. The book itself will be in black and white, but I'm going to be doing it all up in colour too, because I'm funny like that...

More soon!

Lorenzo!

Dude, you never cease to amaze me. I'll be grabbing a copy of that massive sketchbook this week. I can't let a piece of inspiration like that pass :)

Hey Marooned! Pal, thank you so much! I really really appreciated the kind words, and I'm chuffed to hear you're gonna pick up a copy of the book! Please come in here and let me know what you thought of it when you've got your copy, I'd really appreciate that! Many thanks as ever for the support, lots more stuff on the way in here each week!

Okay, let's start the week with something sketchy. Each morning I warm up with a little quick life drawing, here's a few from today...
