Leif Peng, who has for years posted the quintessential blog on illustration has a new book project out on Kickstarter. As he writes below:
Just want to mention I will be launching a Kickstarter on June 1st (my birthday!) for a book on the Art of Will Davies - my former studio mate and one of the grand old men of the Canadian illustration scene. Will was to the Canadian women's magazine market what Coby Whitmore was to McCall's and Ladies Home Journal - and what Bernie Fuchs was to Detroit (you had to wear many hats to make it in our small pond, and Will wore the crown at Toronto's largest art studio, TDF, during it's heyday.

At the start of the year I really had the best of intentions of trying to post something every week on this blog…but we all know what Robert Burns said about that (The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men. Gang aft agley,. An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,.). So this is my first post in a while, but I’m hoping I do get back on a regular track. Trying to turn out a comic book on a regular schedule tends to eat into all your time.
Just to whet your appetite, here are a few of the pencilled pages from issue #8, the last segment in this story arc.
