Eclectic Micks Day

Its a momentous day here in Eclectic Micks land as we reach our 200th post without missing a day of putting up an image. And to celebrate, were going to announce:

The inaugural Eclectic Micks sktchbook, which weighs in at a whopping 120 pages!
The book is going to be launched at the BICS in Birmingham next October, from there were sure to follow it up with an Irish launch and then (hopefully) we'll be able to make a few copies available online
Check out the cover in all its glory here

So it wouldnt be a proper Eclectic Micks day without an art post so heres the big bad Sith himself, Mr. Vader

And ofcourse a little plug for the symptoms, you can check out an exclusive interview with the band right here at which showcases the talented writing of Dave Hendrick and the fine art of the Micks

That's a nice looking cover :)

The red was a good choice, much classier looking than the Green, white and orange suggestion :D

Mansloth said...

kick-ass, looking forward the seeing the book.
nice detail on Vader

Stephen Mooney said...

Really like the Vader piece Will, there's something a lot more fluid to the pose and the organic touches on the inks really give him some life.
Great stuff.
And 200 posts? Really?!
That's a lotta posts.

Bob Byrne said...

Nice Will nice. Vaders legs look like corn on the cobs though.

Will Sliney said...

Hahaha, man i spent ages on those legs. Oooh organic inking, something i never thought I'd hear about my stuff.
Yeah Stephen I'm pretty happy with the cover too.
Cheers Mansloth, I'm looking forward to seeing it too

Congrats on the 200th and that's a cool idea about the book, looks good and I'm sure will be a seller.
