So, I've been totally blown away by the response to the release of my monster sketchbook, thanks to you all for the kind words and great feedback you've been sending us and telling us in the forums, it's made putting the whole thing together so worth it!

And so, as the last one took me about a year to put together (600 IS a lot of pages!) I've decided that as I want to get the next one published within the next 18 months, I probably need to start work on laying it up now.

"The NEXT one?!!" I hear you say.

Ohhhhh yeah, there's a LOT of stuff you still haven't seen yet...including this gal, who has a hint of the Miku Hatsune about her...

Stay tuned!

Lorenzo!

So, yesterday I celebrated 9 1/2 years of knowing and loving the most perfect girl in all the world, and in 3 months she'll go from being my girl to being my wife! I couldn't possibly be happier than when I'm with her, and I just wanted to say, I love you baby, you are literally PERFECT!

Here's another little detail from my brand new print which will be launched at the Howeies/Ink-dot ESCAPE exhibition this Thursday 17th June.

There has been an update to the sizes available this time, so the print will now be available in the following sizes:

A3 Limited Edition of 50
A2 Limited edition of 30
A1 Limited edition of 10

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. Lovely!

The show features over 30 other new prints from a selection of the UK's finest illustrators, animators and designers, so it's going to be awesome, basically.

Moe details HERE.

Both Robin and I will be at the launch, so we look forward to seeing you guys there!

Cheers!

Lorenzo!

So, today is a very important day, as it's the birthday of the bestest guy in all the world, our dad!

I'm so proud to have a father as caring, compassionate, and downright genius as Mr Etherington senior, and I just wanted to come in here and tell him so! Pops, I'm sorry I can't be with ya' today, but I hope you guys have a lovely time whizzing out around the Norfolk countryside!

Here, just for you, is my special version of Jack Vettriano's Birth of a Dream. Now hurry up and get that boat in the water!

TONS of love, Pops!

So, Robin and I were at the astoundingly awesome Ink-dot/Howies ESCAPE exhibition opening last night, and we were so blown away by the work in the show. Seriously, if you're anywhere near Bristol between now and the 11th July you NEED to see this show. It's very cool. More details HERE.

I'll be posting some photos from the opening night up very soon.

The launch of the show also means that you can now buy my brand new exclusive print from the show. Here, for your viewing pleasure is the full piece. It's available in A3, A2 and super-big-super-beautiful A1 sizes, and the production quality on these prints is through the roof. Gorgeous paper, super-high quality Giclee printing, they are things of beauty!

To preview and buy this bad boy, go to the prints section of our store HERE.

Oh, and my previous print for the ink-dot guys, featuring Stranski, is now also available in all three sizes. Whoop!

Cheers!

Lorenzo!

Sooooooo, I spent the weekend in London, and thus had plenty of time standing around on the underground and stuff, thereby giving me the opportunity to do a little character sketching, enjoy!

Phew! The Ink-dot Escape exhibition has only just opened (runs until 11th July, photos from the opening night and details on our blog HERE) and already it's time to tell you about the NEXT exhibition I'm involved in!

On Friday 23rd July Weapon of Choice will be opening a new group exhibition in the Howies gallery, and I'll have a brand new painting in the show. I'll also be drawing something big live at the opening night, alongside a load of other very talented artists, so make sure you're there!

More details very soon, but in the meantime, here's a little peek at one of the pieces from my One Man Army show earlier this year...

HUGE news coming in the next few weeks, including the launch of The Lore of the Things, a sneak peek at the advance copies of Monkey Nuts and the Diamond Egg of Wonders, and, once the ink has dried on the contracts, news of something VERY new and VERY cool! Whoop!

Just a very little sketch here to draw your attention THIS ANNOUNCEMENT about the fact that Jamie Smart's Fish Head Steve is being developed for TV! Believe me when I say that nothing could be better for you kids than to get a dose of this madness in animated form on a regular basis, so we at Etherington Towers are keeping all our fingers and toes crossed that this baby gets through all the 'orrible red tape of the broadcasting industry and makes it to our screens super-fast!

Congrats, Jamie, you deserve nothing less!

Right, these are awesome. Our publisher sent us through the first super-shiny-still-warm-from-the-presses advance copies of Monkey Nuts and the Diamond Egg of Wonders, here's a few shots of us gurning away with 'em!

Let me tell you, these babies are sooooo nice. The quality of production on the the printing and binding of these books is off the scale. Beautiful big hardback bad boys with gorgeous super-rich interior paper stock...mmmm! Good enough to eat!

As everyone knows, September 2nd will be national Monkey Nuts day, and we'll be back in here to show you lots more on the build up to the launch. Of course you can pre-order your copies NOW on Amazon right HERE.

Oh, and it's 1 Day and 17 hours until the launch of The Lore of the Things!

So, here we go. The Lore of the Things, the brand new FREE online comic adventure from us Etherington Brothers is now live!

READ IT HERE!

We won't say too much about it at this stage, other than that you have some treats a-coming! We've got quite a bit of the story prepped, but as we're currently in the final 8 weeks of production on our new book Baggage, the strips to begin with will drop every two weeks or so, just to keep the whole thing regular.

But to paraphrase the great adventure to which we now align ourselves...

"New episodes are never late, Frofro Bagel, nor are they early, they arrive precisely when they mean to."

Enjoy!

Lorenzo and Robin!

Here's the main character lineart for my print from the Howies-ink-dot ESCAPE exhibition. You have until the 11th of this month to get down to the Escape exhibition at the Howies gallery here in Bristol. To see the print in full colour and learn more about how to order it online just go HERE!

And don't forget, on Friday 23rd of this month I'll be back at the Howies gallery with a new painting for another group show, this time with the Weapon of Choice guys. I'll also be drawing live on the opening night, directly onto the walls of the gallery, along with NINE other ridiculously talented artists from the street scene. It's gonna go OFF. Details of the night HERE!

Just a little teaser for those of you who like to be ahead of the game on things! BAGGAGE is now available to pre-order from Amazon RIGHT HERE!

But you can start your collection much sooner than that, as MONKEY NUTS: The Diamond Egg of Wonders is published in 6 week's time!

Ooooh!

Here's a little sketch I recently did in one of my big 600 page sketchbooks for our good friend Julie over in Paris. It's a little like my old One Night in the City stuff, for those of you who remember...

Next up, Lore of the Things Episode 2!
