Jason Lettering Outtakes.

More "Behind the Scenes": Part of the sheet of Jason lettering for the translations in "Pocket Full of Rain." There wasn't much to translate so Jason just wrote it all out on a single sheet of paper. A fun bit of ephemera that went along with this stray bit of text.

A panoramic view of Pinhead-ville!
Written by Kim Thompson | Filed under Zippy the PinheadpreviewsOriginal Artnew releasesBill Griffith 26 Jun 2008 12:04 PM

Welcome to Dingburg - Zippy the Pinhead - Bill Griffith
(click to enlarge)

Bill Griffith turned in his spectacular cover to the upcoming WELCOME TO DINGBURG Zippy collection, which focuses heavily on Dingburg, the "city inhabited solely by pinheads." (Other than Washington D.C., of course.) The inside cover will feature a full-color fold-out map of Dingburg, and as a result the front cover is also a foldout and our man Bill knocked himself out on both. Enjoy your sneak peek at the original to the cover (we're keeping the map under wraps for now), and look for the book late this year.


Lehmann art for sale

Femme au chien by Matthias Lehmann

Matthias Lehmann (HWY. 115) is having a Spring Sale of original art. Even if you're too broke to buy any, go check it out because it's awful purty — Matthias is one of the few remaining practitioners of the ancient and crazy-making art of scratchboard, and he ups the ante by handcoloring it on top of that. And if you do want to buy some, don't worry, Matthias speaks and writes excellent English.

One Euro is about a buck and a half these days. Buy them before it's two dollars!
