The past two weeks have seen some great action! Here’s just a quick update:
My artist, Axel Torvenius, sent me a sketch of the cover art. All I can say is he nailed it better than I could have hoped. I can’t wait to share it with y’all. Axel really has special talent, and I’m glad I found him.
Tonight we had the rescheduled photo shoot with Miceli Productions. It’s really great working people who are passionate about art – and it helps they are also close friends! Mike is an awesome photographer, and it was a pleasure to watch him work. I’m excited to see Mike & Jenn transform another friend of mine into a character from the book. Here’s where I have to send a special shout-out to Michelle – she was a trooper! After surviving “hair & makeup” with my wife, Michelle nailed some very tough poses. Without compliant, Michelle brought the character to life and weathered the brutal 2-hour photo session. My eternal gratitude!
During the shoot, Jenn was snapping “behing the scenes” shots, and Miceli Productions will be blogging about our little project. I will link that stuff here as well.
In other news, work continues on the video trailer as artwork arrives. Another talented friend of mine, Mike B, is producing that for me. Hopefully we’ll have a finished product in the next few weeks.
Things are definitely taking shape! I’m off to camp with the family for a week, so I’ll blog again on the flip side…
