Bryn Chancellor: ‘When Are You Coming Home?’

bryn_storycollection

Bryn Chancellor’s fiction collection When Are You Coming Home? is officially coming out on September 1, 2015. A lot of folks, though, have been able to get it ahead of time from some of the bookstores listed below. I happen to be a little bit biased, since I watched the author write most of these stories (but not in a creepy way). Even so, I think this is a very fine book and am glad Bryn now gets to share it with the rest of the world. Her website is located at brynchancellor.com

Animated ‘Notebook’

So that’s all of the work from beyond the dawn of time. Now on to brand new stuff that’ll probably look kinda the same as the old stuff but also really different. I hope.

Animated ‘Quad’

I had about 48 hours 4 years ago to make this 4″ x 6″ eavesdroppings book. If I had it to do over again, it’d be at least 1000% different. Like, it wouldn’t be green and pink, for one thing. Plus it’d have different, maybe less crude letterforms. But my time bike’s still in the shop with a busted chronic dynamo. And in any case, new work will start to happen soon, which’ll crowd out the memory of this old stuff, which’ll be nice.

Work in Progress: ‘Murmur’ Artist’s Book

Work that’s happening inside of and around and over and under other work. The whole stab-bound thing will have 30 folios (meaning 60 mess-covered pages), so there’s still a ways to go. But you’ll be able to print it out yourself when it’s done, as long as you have about nine dozen fresh ink cartridges handy. And, yes, the contrast between the dull cover and the colorful innards is of course totally on purpose.

Animated ‘Smart Cookie’

A miniature book from 2012. The text is from hundreds of assorted fortune cookie fortunes collected over the years. Printed from polymer plates on a Vandercook press.

Animated ‘Jumble’

A 3″ x 3″ miniature book from 2011. Printed in 7 runs over the course of 3 weeks on a Vandercook SP15, this 4-folio, 16-page book is too small to contain all of the text it struggles to contain. Which makes it kind of a hellbox of random notes and lists and other scribblings. Which was kind of the whole point, if I remember correctly. Anyway, working on several of these animated version for my new website. So back to work, as usual.

Clearing the Decks

What I’m doing today instead of drawing, although it’s maybe going to help me get back to drawing. I hope. Like, soon.

Final: Parasol

Drawn from a real life image I saw in Charlotte, NC on July 17, 2015. Took longer than it should’ve taken, on account of being out of practice after the move. Eventually, I’ll get back to that book project I was working on before, but it looks like it’ll take a week or so first to get warmed back up. So some stuff like this is likely to happen for a while, if I can remember which end of the pen’s the business end. Anyhow, I listened to Phillip Eno’s Comfort Room and Pinkshinyultrablast’s Everything Matters while drawing this. But quietly. Which worked out fine. Plus it rained, which made a good soundtrack, too.

3D Illustration Instructions

tw15_anaglyph_info

This is the first draft of a tutorial on making 3D drawings. Who knows when a second or third draft will happen (we’re in the middle of moving, so life’s a little chaotic at the moment). Everything that was supposed to be cyan might look like a slightly different kind of blue in the PDF, but that’s okay. You can still see (I hope) how the layers are supposed to work. The original drawing with more accurate colors is located here.
