HAPPY ANNIVERSARY BRANDSTUDIO PRESS!
Yup! Brandstudio Press LLC. is celebrating its first year of existence as a publishing house catering to the best independent artists in this miserable planet. March 8th 2007 was the date, exactly a week from today I made the announcement that rocked the world! . . . our little artistic world, that is.
To celebrate this milestone, we are happy to announce new books coming this Spring and Summer, some of which you've seen in previous posts. This new batch will include more of the award winning work of Brandstudio Press alumni, such as: Mattew Stewart, Erwin Haya, Andrew Robinson, Phil Noto, Francisco Herrera, Humberto Ramos and other notables who are working on exciting new material, which I have no doubt will rock your respective worlds for sure.
As if that wasn't enough, —and with us, nothing is ever enough— we're exploding with joy to help bring to you sketchbooks and art books by 'newcomers' like Frank Cho, Michael Golden, Shane Glines, J. Scott Campbell, Jose Lopez, Martin Wittig among other whippersnappers.
What started in my basement as an idea to beat the industry at its own game, with a group of adventurous friends who took a huge leap of faith, has now taken a life of its own and I can not be prouder, as you can well imagine.
Add to that pile of fine books by fine people, our own populist product called "EYE CANDY FROM STRANGERS V 01" which I've been told by our printer will be available in a few weeks, and we can certainly have a lot to look forward to this Summer.
None of this, of course, could have been possible without your undying support. Now, I can't speak for the other artists involved and although I wish I can take credit for the success of this 'community', as I like to call Brandstudio Press, I know all too well, they are the driving force behind this beautiful madness, I'm positive they also thank you for supporting their endeavors.
I wanted to offer a little something back, I can't undercut the artists by lowering their books' prices but I can certainly take a few bucks off my own books, not forever but at least for a week. So from today March first until midnight, March 8th those of you who wish to purchase the best seller "Straight Curves" and "Chola/Jalapeño Lollipops" can do so at a major discount.
"Straight Curves" —Click HERE to see preview—will sell for $19.95 (originally $30) and Chola/Jalapeño Lollipops" —Click HERE to see preview— will cost you $14.95 (regular price $24.95). This deal will only last until March 8th so I urge you to take advantage of it and order often.
