Happy new year everyone. I thought I would start off the new year with a new book that I have just recently published through Brand Studios, and my good friend Alberto Ruiz. It will be available at the end of January, exclusivly through my website and conventions that I attend. www.silvertoons.com. This new book is about the importance of life drawing and how you can take the figure that is in front of you and turn them into a character design.

Thanks everyone. Doing this with Alberto has opened up my eyes to a new way of creating independant published books. Alberto who is not only a great draftsman, but a great Graphic designer did this cover for me and layed out the entire inside of the book.

Another great book. Also thank you for the Podcast. I just listen to the last one and it was very inspiring. What you said makes so much sense and we have heard it before, but hearing your take on it and how you came to realize these truths was very good to hear. Please keep these going.

Dan szilagyi said...

hope you had a good time yourself steve!
I really enjoy all your artcasts, sorry i can't think of any topics that i'd like to ask you about...what about being stuck in one "style" too long? and being afraid of steping down a step in order to get better.

can't wait to see your posts this year!
cheers~
