So i'm not taking the completed 4AM to the london book fair. It's been decided.
It's getting fairly obvious that it's not going to be done in time to a standard i'll be happy with to send to print.
It's okay though i think a promo piece will be just as good as i'm not going to sell the comic to punters i'm pitching myself and my work/ideas. Which i can do with just a snippet...hopefully anyway.
The promo piece is going to be a flip over book. With no back cover, just two fronts that you flip over to read the other half. The one half is going to be a few pages of portfolio work and the other a few preview pages from 4AM. Cleverly going to be called 3:59AM (thanks to Joe for the title :D). The portfolio side is called Tired Eyes (after this blog) and there will be a double spread in the middle explaining about 4AM and about me as an illustrator.
So it's on with that for a while. Time to break out InDesign again. Ouch.
