Happy New Year...and New Sci-Fi Book Art

Happy 2017!

Chaz ended 2016 with something he hasn't done for quite a while - a piece of book cover illustration.

This one was for the series of sci-fi epics by writer J I Stuart, the latest in the Klylii series.

You can find the book online, here.

'Euromericarnage' - 2016 in a Nutshell?

Exercise in collage and assemblage produced by Chaz for a class project a month or so ago - while utilising materials culled mainly from newspapers and journals at the time, it ended up being something of a political and social snapshot of 2016 up to that time. Plenty to look at and think about, anyway.

Christopher Robin (Almost) Grew Up

Sharing a piece of class work Chaz did as part of a creative drawing project a couple of months ago - where randomly chosen sketches of different objects, and live models, were to be incorporated into a final piece of imaginative drawing. This is one of the rough compositions that didn't make it.

A Bit of Festive Illustration: 'The Snow Queen'

Just sharing a little drawing Chaz did a few weeks ago for a class project on ice - as it's now the time of year for fairy tales, and icy landscapes, we thought it appropriate. The 19th Century Art Nouveau style was a big influence on this one, especially the artist Alphonse Mucha.

New Graphic Art: Ice Cubed...

With Chaz full-time at art school since September (and - we hope - for the foreseeable future), new FWB content will understandably be a bit thin on the ground. That doesn't mean he's not still working on cool things in the background, but obviously at a much slower rate than before*. However, in order to keep this old blog going, he's decided to hijack it a little in the meantime to share a few select pieces of art work which may be of interest.

Here's one, fresh off the press, and rendered in his ever-evolving graphic ink style: 'Ice Cube triptych: "Ice Cubed"'...

These are 3x 25cm square ink drawings, to be displayed inside a custom-built glass cube.

*And we're still aiming to get to Deecon with a wee stall in 2017...

Halloween Horror & Supernatural Freebies!

Just a quick note to say that, over this Halloween weekend (starting from the 30th) - and ending on the 1st November - FWB will be listing for free a number of our dark, horror and supernatural Amazon eBooks for free on Kindle, including the cyberpunk splatter adventure Malaria 9 and the dark psychological prequel to Maranatha, namely Venus in Saturn.

It's been a long time since we ran a free promo for Kindle books so get in quick and grab some creepy weekend reading.

What's Just around the Corner...?

'Don't quit the day job' is unkind advice usually given to people who don't look too promising in their current mode of self-expression - however that's exactly what Chaz did last month, and as such he's now firmly ensconced in the first year of an art & design degree course at Dundee.

As a result, work on all FWB-related things has been sporadic, but we still have works (mostly at reduced prices!) for sale in the Black Hole on Victoria Road, 'Mister Frisk' manga t-shirts in Otaku Studio, and potentially more openings and opportunities on the way as Chaz begins the process of networking and establishing local contacts in the comics, art, media and writing fields.

We don't know what could be just around the corner, but we'll definitely be sharing it to these very pages as soon as we find out.
