Alright, NOW I can finally announce what I’ve been keeping bottled up for ages!
It is worth noting that this is the most exciting and fantastic thing that has ever happened to me. I’ve always dreamed about illustrating a Gaiman book, and this is more than I ever could have hoped for.
Neil Gaiman’s Calendar of Tales website is finally up, and I am very flattered and very honored to announce that he chose my illustration for November. I remember finding out while I was at work and sitting in front of my computer and crying on the library books. Now the kind comment he’s written is making me cry again. I’m a bit of a mess right now.
I don’t think I can express how honored I feel to have been part of this, and how happy I am that I was able to give back a little. Neil’s work is incredibly inspirational to me. I have been lucky enough to meet him twice (and Amanda Palmer once as well!), and I cannot say enough how wonderful they are.
Please do go and look at all the wonderful submissions, and check September for my friend Katie’s submission!
And again Neil (I already tweeted this at you, but I’m going to shout it into the void of the internet yet again in the hope that it will reach you), thank you a thousand times! I can’t say that enough.
We are mega happy to be publishing Hanna K’s work. We actually started by making three books. The first one is THE NEW FRONTIER, which is a bit of an introduction to this massive space spanning sci-fi story she’s working on, with comics and sketches in it. We also published a super tiny comic which was her hourly comic day from 2013 and we also did a reprint of her cool swedish book called Lite drömmar (it’s only in swedish though).
All three books are in the shop right now, and she’s coming with us to ELCAF next month so.. get autographs and irl high fives there!
Hanna K. is cool.
this looks cool
wow this looks awesome!
