Hello folks
...or should that be 'bonjour'? Yes, my trip to Paris is looming large on the horizon and I've been preparing a 50-page sketchbook for the event. Springheeled Jack is being released in a French edition by the good folks at Aaltair---a fledgling publishing company with big ideas. I've heard that the european market is much larger than the UK so we'll see what happens. Aaltair are producing two limited books initially, SHJ and Peter Pan by none other than the legend that is CHARLES VESS, who will also be in attendance. I've been a fan of his work since the early 80s, I just hope I don't gush all over the place (a little bit will be okay, but I don't want to make a mess):) Here's a new SHJ peice I've done for the sketchbook. The plan is to do 50 copies, all of which will have a painted sketch of somekind. But...I still have to send them to the printers so time is short.

As always a thing of beauty. Good to see you return to SHJ. Have fun in Paris!

Have a great Con .. I'm sure you'll impress the French with SHJ .. they know quality when they see it.

Have fun, I love Vess' work, have you seen his art book...beautiful! Any chance of sketchbooks going to rabid Dave H collectors?
