Heads Up!

Wow! Two Journal entries in two days! I’m on a roll…

This is just a quick heads up: The March 2008 issue of Natural History magazine will have a six page full color spread on my recently completed murals for the San Diego Natural History Museum. I’ve seen an advance pdf of the well-written article by Richard Milner and it looks terrific.

If you can’t wait to glimpse some of the murals, go to the San Diego Natural History Museum website (www.sdnhm.org) or pick up the current issue of Prehistoric Times. The PT images are sadly teensy (despite a huge cover blurb), but there’s a lot of them and they’re in full color.

I just returned from a three day PR trip to San Diego where I did a multitude of TV, radio, internet and newspaper interviews promoting the San Diego murals. I even did three of my interviews in Spanish, for a Spanish language TV news show, radio show and newspaper. My interviewers were ve-e-e-e-ery (mucho or muchissimo, actually) patient with me and my Spanish!

While at the San Diego Natural History Museum I talked with museum publicist Delle Willett about coordinating a mural talk/event at the museum involving Comic-Con International while I’m down there (if you can, please let Comic-Con personnel know that you’d love to attend that kind of program). I hope we can all work something out! Meanwhile, my book on the murals (planned to debut at Comic-Con) is coming along. I finished the text and sent off all of the picture files to John Fleskes, my publisher. The next step is for my friend and ace designer Randy Dahlk to assemble the stuff I sent and design the book. I’ll keep you posted…

    Thanks for the heads-up on the magazine articles!

    I saw the mention of the book on the Flesk Publications website. John sure does have some *fantastic* books, and I can’t wait to see yours.

    Can’t wait to see the book come out, though sadly I may not be in SD for the debut. Glad I have seen most of the murals in person though, they are spectacular.

    I received my copy of Natural History in the mail three days ago.The reproductions are gorgeous.
    It’s also heartening to read that you’ll be using Randy Dahlk to design your upcoming book from John Flesk Publications. After seeing his design work for Mark Schultz’ collections over the years has me anxious to see what he’ll do for your work.

    Rick
