Sketchbook 2011

By Justin Gerard




9 x 6, 32 pages, color

For those of you who missed Illuxcon, I am selling a new sketchbook! I am really excited about how this one turned out (This year it's in color!)

It was awesome to finally get a chance to meet and hang out with all of you who were there.
This year's show was as spectacular as the previous years. Petar Meseldzija was there doing magic tricks with paint, Donato was showing his new Tolkien paintings, I got to meet fellow Muddy, Jesper Elsing. It was an amazing show and no one slept the entire time.

I came away with tons of new ideas and things I want to experiment with.  In trying to explain it to a friend I said, it was like I was some big case detective who had been working a case for almost a decade, but in the last year all my leads had gone cold. No clues for months and I was spending most of my time in the bar, demoralized.  Then all of a sudden I find a whole railcar full of bodies and clues and I am hot on the trail once more.











The 2011 sketchbook contains a lot of work from the St. George project I have been posting on recently.  It also contains a lot of new development work that I haven't shown before.


I am selling the sketchbooks HERE. All are signed, but I am doing drawings in the first 50 orders!

  1. Looking awesome, Justin! I just posted on twitter about it, it looks really rad, I can't wait to pick myself up a copy.

  2. Oh man, I hope I can get my order in before 50!
    So glad you got re-inspired at IlluxCon - I really wanted to go this year, but by the time I realized that I had the time to go, registration was already over, and I was stuck!

    Anyway, hope I can make it there next year. I'm also making plans to go to the IMC in Amherst this summer, I'm really excited about that.
    And I can't wait to get the sketchbook! I have a troop of dwarves jealously guarding my copy of your 2010 edition, and they are eager to hoard 2011's.

  3. Damm, I'm now stuck between getting this and your Smaug print...? Think I'll go for the Smaug print for now, the colour's in it are just too juicy to ignore. (I don't know wether to stare at it or lick it when it arrives?)

  4. Order submitted! Hope I made the first 50...

    There's a spot waiting for this in my studio, right next to my Paul Bonner volume. :)

  5. It feels almost insulting calling this a sketchbook. Especially when I compare it to my sketches this looks more like an artbook. ^^°

  6. Worth a buy just for the previewed lady above, or the cover, or the skull, or the insightful process ...

    Gorgeous!
