British author, Fiona Robyn, is going to start blogging her next novel, THAW, on March 1, 2010. The novel, which will be in the form of the the main character’s diary, will chronicle three months during which Ruth is contemplating suicide.
To help spread the word she’s organizing a “Blogsplash” where blogs will publish the first page of Ruth’s diary simultaneously with a link to the blog.
It is certainly an interesting way to get attention and the viral marketing aspect of it is sure to create some media attention. We will have to wait and see if THAW makes the desired splash.

Hey everyone, it's week two and my Robot Alphabet book is progressing nicely. If you missed out on my earlier post, the short version is that I am in the process of illustrating my first children's book. Each week I'll be illustrating another letter until I reach the letter Z, after which time I'll be self-publishing the book. Here is B for Blast-off. Hope you like it. If you'd like to track my progress you can always check out my new weekly blog here.

Here's a late Texture illo of Spalding Grey. He was one of my favorites and I saw the play on his last works this week.
Here's one of the four puzzles from Know Fun, my regular puzzles and fun spread in the new issue of Know Magazine ( The Science Magazine for Curious Kids ) that hits the stands this week. I try to vary the style from issue to issue and this month I loaded on the texture. Dig in!
Hey..I am using one of Vonster's textures. Sweet! Thank you!
For this weeks challenge I chose an old neon sign as the subject of my composition. I first created the vector illustration in freehand. See below.
After importing the vector illustration into photoshop, I applied three texture layers to the piece to give the sign the appearance of being weathered and a wood grain to the building.
I did this illustration with texture about 12 years ago.
In honor of my good friend Von's latest book release, Crumble Crackle Burn: 120 Stunning Textures for Design & Illustration, I've decided to make this weeks theme: Texture. Work some kind of texture into your illustration. If you haven't bought his book yet, you should. I got mine in the mail yesterday from Amazon and it is phenomenal! Not to mention there are a number of SFG'ers who contributed to this book. Go check it out at www.texturebook.com or click on the link in the advertisement on the left.
For you newcomers, the SFG Challenge runs Thursday to Thursday, and was created to offer every member an opportunity to stretch their creative muscles and post their interpretations on a specific theme. It's a lot of fun!
Be sure to label your illustrations with the appropriate labels as well. I prefer you label your entries with your name or screenname, and the challenge label, SFG: Texture
Remember, this is a completely voluntary challenge designed solely to stimulate creativity and promote participation. Please don't hesitate to post your other work as normal.
I'm still looking for someone to help me with keeping up with posting updates for SFG and DI to some of the illustration and design news sites that are out there. Contact me if you're interested in helping out.
I'd also love to see you SFG'ers help to advertise the site yourselves, posting links on your own websites, and talking it up where and when you can all over the net. Help me to build this brand!
The next challenge begins Thursday, July 5th, 2007.
Challenge yourselves SFG'ers and have a great week!

Here's a card I made for my sister's birthday yesterday. The texture comes from a photo of a grey-brownish rock. I used it because it gave the illustration a dirty crumpled paper feel.
So for me, I started using texture after I experimented around for a while, and stumbled on a technique that I could apply consistently.
It happened with this very piece, in fact:
Hey, that remindes me of something...
I've written some articles that might interest other SFG folks. They're about self-publishing, surviving Comic-Con, free software, and stuff like that.
Check them out here.
Here's one that I did a few weeks ago:
I've been using texture over my vectors for a couple of years now, so I was excited about this week's challenge. I may post more than one...
I find that texture ups the "vintage" feel that I love so much.
It's been a while since my last post! I've moved back home to Canada from New Zealand and I've been keeping pretty busy!
My work tends to be quite textured so I thought this SFG challenge would be a great opportunity to post a link to my 'virtual' Rhyme Book!
My latest spread is posted below as well! Enjoy!
This one is kind of a cheat since I just posted this image yesterday. But a friend of mine looked at my little recruitment poster and instantly zeroed in on what was missing: "There really ought to be some incentive for joining up, don't you think?" I agree, hence the green girl. The texture I added to this poster was a freebie provided by the brilliant Von Glitschka. If you're not familiar with Von's work, you owe it yourself to check it out.

I have had a go with some texture on a relatively smooth original illustration here... added an emboss filter to the texture to try and recreate a gesso look...
I think it gives the illustration a more oldy-worldy feel which suits the image...

MMMmmmm I love me some texture. Most of my work includes some sort of texture. This is a piece I did awhile back with alot of texture goin on. Its a version of little red riding hood. A scary version.
