Craola Title Revealed

We weren't really keeping it secret, Greg just named it the other day as well as drew a cool title graphic. Greg's first title idea was along the lines of "Draw" or "Drawn", we felt it maybe sounded a bit too much like a learn to draw book, (although not a text book you will learn something - I promise). "The Well" was another title that came to the surface and the marriage of the two certainly evoke a cool image. I dig it and now when I talk of "Drawn from the Well" you will be in the know. I also just checked out Volume 14 of Hi Fructose magazine and they did Greg right with an interview and many pages of art. They also name checked Presto Art as the publisher of Greg's upcoming book, so we sure liked that.

What's Up Next.

What are we up to next here at Presto? We are deep into the design phase on our next art book from artist extraordinaire Dave Fox. Dave was the artist behind the very popular "Haunted" title we published a few years back. Dave's interpretation of Japanese folk lore was so popular we sold the title out twice. We are now knee deep in hundreds of works from Dave, and one is greater than the next. As the book is coming together it is an amazing body of colorful, graphic, and unique paintings. The characters Dave creates are completely unique, humorous, colorful and strange. The book is going to be wall to wall packed with Dave's creative and prolific energy. We can't wait, our target time frame is Summer 10. We will keep you up to date as it progresses.
