Afterlife Artist

It is an honor to announce the artist who will be finishing volume 2 of Afterlife: Rich Fuscia.

I started this post about a month ago and it's certainly long overdue! If you've sorted through the art that I've recently posted, then you know that choosing someone to finish volume 2 of Afterlife has not been easy. There were many great submissions and many people weighed in on their favorites. However, throughout the entire process, Fuscia's name consistently came up again and again.

So congratulations, Rich!

I would also like to give a nod to all of the other talented artists who submitted. It was such a pleasure to wake up each day and find such beautiful work waiting for me. However, of all the artists, I would like to give a special thanks to the other finalists: Joe Largent, Ethan Wenberg, and Jake Ekiss. Each of you did beautiful work and I hope that we have room to put together a pin up gallery in the back of the book to showcase your talents!

Because this post is a month overdue, I'm happy to say that Fuscia has already done an amazing amount of work and we're back on schedule with the book which is due out in September. Once we have a few finished pages, I'm sure we'll feature them here and on our myspace page:

Check back soon!
