Frahnknshtyne, the next phase

Hello friends and visitors.  It has been a number of weeks since the last post on this blog and I apologize for the protracted period of time.  The story work on Frahnknshtyne has entered it's second phase.  The exploration and structuring of the ideas in the story are ready to fully write and fully illustrate the narrative. Up to this point I have been sharing the exploration and discovery with you.  I will continue to post some of the art and story insights as I continue from here so bear with me if the posting happens a bit less frequently.

Perhaps the most exciting news is that the first publishing format has been set.  I have become involved with an exciting new company doing work on the frontier of digital publishing but in a way that truly launches the Meta-story in the best possible fashion.  I am thrilled to be directly contributing to the development of this new digital publishing format and to be wrestling with the combination of both linear and non-linear story telling combined in this single new format.  Because I am a Meta-story expert working on emerging new formats, this opportunity for me, is priceless.  My hope is to have this book to market by end of this year/beginning of next year. As I'm sure most of you can appreciate, balancing the work that pays the bills with the writing and illustrating of something new is always a challenge to manage.

 As visitors to my site you will get to see parts of the Frahnknshtyne book before it comes out but...it is also important to me that everyone gets to experience the unexpected and unknown when the book is published.  For that reason, I'm holding back lots of goodies to share with you in the book itself.  (Wink and a wry smile).

Stay tuned and cheers for now, Kevin

PS - here's a sketchy concept for the dragon ship that I rejected because it was too futuristic.  I can't stand to post without including some kind of sketch for eye-candy.
