ECFS2 in Production

As promised, the 2008 Eye Candy From Strangers is nearing completion and it should be in stores in a few weeks.
Even in its infancy, this yearly visual treat is quickly becoming a tradition in the illustration community.
Thanks again to all of you for submitting your work regardless of inclusion and to those who have supported this project from the get-go.

The winner of the cover contest this year is Sergio Melero from Spain (below) 



The great Kei Acedera from Imaginism Studios illustrated the jacket and end papers for this volume. Click HERE or on the image below to see more of her ECFS art.

 Abrazos,
—Alberto

Hi, Alberto -

will those of us who have work published in the book be notified when it is finished?

Thanks for any info -
Kyle

Process Junkie said...

You will be notified for sure, I'm having trouble with the printing of this book that's why it's being delayed.

Hang in there.
