It’s been an exciting week for Tiny Pencil as we’ve seen gorgeous proofs from our printer and the anthology is being beautifully litho-printed as we speak! Issue one grew to a massive 64 pages as there was just so much awesomeness to squeeze in! 聽Now that it’s all off to the presses we’re super excited to finally show off the stunning front cover illustration by聽Showchicken聽(aka Nick Sheehy) above. Nick says the illustration made his hand hurt, but I’m sure you’ll agree the end result was worth it and pretty spectacular!聽Makes you want to go wandering alone in the woods聽at night, eh?
We asked artists to respond to the theme of “forest” and were just blown away by all the amazing art that came in. 聽We’ve got two painterly pencil spreads from Yoko Tanaka, woodland wizardry from Jack Teagle, full-page drawing spread + comic from Luke Pearson, graphite guru聽antler love from Stuart Whitton, and much, much more. 27 artists in total contributed to make this whopping 64-page artzine happen!
Here are a few stunning snippets of things to come:
