I have good news and bad news. Everyone wants to hear bad news first, so here you go:
I'm not taking any more commissions until after June. I'm embarrassingly behind on everyone's artwork as it is, and now I have a lot of Real-Life stuff to deal with as well. Namely, the Big Move. I'll be moving out of Arizona in a couple months, and the preparations have been murder. A 1300-mile move is difficult in the best of times, and in these Crappy Economy Times, it's even more hectic. Whee!
For everyone who is currently waiting for artwork, thanks for your patience. I'm working on your art, I swear! It's just been slow going lately.
Of course, Locus will still update M/W/F. Nothing short of my death or near-death will stop that.
And now, the Good News:
I will indeed be printing up 11"x17" posters of the cover to Locus, Issue Nine. However, these will be limited edition posters. I'm only making 50 of them, and they will be signed and numbered. Cost will be $10 each, plus $2 for shipping (in North America) or $5 anywhere else. I haven't announced this formally until now, and there's already a list of people waiting for me to print these things up. So get on the list now! They're first-come, first-served.
Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with "Locus #9 Poster" in the subject line so I can add you to the list.
I should have these printed up and ready to ship in the next couple of weeks.
An old project that got shelved two years ago has been moved from the back burner. I met Cockpit at Wizard World LA in 2008, and we decided to work together on something cool and fun which I can't talk about just yet. The project got shelved because we all got way too busy, but we're kicking it into gear again. So stay tuned! It's an exciting project.
