I’ve written my first book!
Its taken even more time and energy than I ever dreamed it would, but yesterday marked the very last chapter passing it’s final stages of being buffed and tweaked into a manuscript that people would actually want to read.
I started planning this book 5 years ago, and only the combination of Five Simple Steps, Chris Mills (A.K.A “Mills of Steel”), Owen Gregory and my technical editor, Gedeon Maheux of The Iconfactory has made it actually happen.
All the icon artists I contacted (bar one - but I shan’t name any names!) were enthusiastic and responsive, which made it a joy to organise. Many responses came with fantastic icon material that hasn’t been seen before - early ideas and process snapshots, as well some yet to be released.
More details of the book will follow soon, but for now, here’s a work in progress of the cover to (hopefully) whet your appetite!
