This is the finished spread for page 30 and 31 of the new book "Fall Festival" to be released this Fall. You can see the modifications to the sketches (below) have been made. Five of these spreads are being forwarded to the publisher today. The remaining 9 spreads are being completed and are scheduled to be forwarded in batches of 4 or 5 by the deadline of the end of May.
The reason we forward them in batches is to allow the graphic artists the time to add the lettering on each page and to "paginate" the book so that it will be ready for the printer, in China, to meet the tight press deadlines.
After the last batch is forwarded, from the studio here in Marblehead, to the publisher in Birmingham, AL, it will be electronically forwarded to the overseas printing facility. It will be printed and bound in quantities to supply the major distributors here in the United States & Canada.
We will be ordering the book from the publisher for our scheduled book signings by Jodie this Fall here at the Gallery in Marblehead. Jodie will also be signing them at Borders in Sandusky, Books-A-Million in Perrysburb, OH. an other local gift shops in Port Clinton area.
