    Worlds & Wonders : my personal artbook (Update with video trailer!!!)

    Hello!!!
    My personal artbook is finally finished and close to be released : I am really really happy (and proud) with it !
    Here is the illustration that I've painted for the cover :

    And some crops :








    Published by CFSLink, you’ll find inside the best of the images that I’ve produced since my professional beginning until today (illustrations, comic-books, concept arts...). The book itself is magnificent and huge (for being honest it looks better than all my expectations! Look at the specs !).






    I ‘ve also written some texts explaining my approaches, sharing some art thoughts or professional points of view. Sometimes it’s about funny stories too. The foreword was written by Marko Djurdjevic and Todd McFarlane wrote some cool notes about my works, appearing on the back cover. I’ve also had the honor to receive around thirty notes of guests, friends, co-workers and artists whom I admire, lot of them are sharing their works here. I’ve also shared some extracts of sketchbooks too, old photos and some other unpublished bonuses.
    It takes a lot of work (and energy) to make this book. I’ve sometimes have to go back really far in order to find some images or some archives. Sorting everything out, compiling texts and pictures and also dealing with the emotional side of it was sometimes hard (yeah true : it’s more than 12 years of my life !). And my publishers did a tremendous job on it.

    To make it shorter, here are the technical specs of the book as well as some links to know more about it:

    « After more than a decade of passionate production, Aleksi Briclot looks back on his work as an image creator. He shares in this book both intimate and professional stories, the whole richness and diversity of his worlds, the complexity of his work methods and the sharpness of his thoughts through images that only have one goal: enticing you. »

    The preview on the CFSL Ink website :
    http://www.cfsl-ink.com/fr/products/...worlds-wonders
    Release date: October 28th, 2010. Published by CFSLink. Hardcover, sewn, tranchefil and bookmark, toilé back, 5th ink on the cover (silver addition). 5 interior sketchbook folders. Size 25x30cm - 276 pages – Languages : English/French-

    Short teaser concerning the creation of a sketch for an ex-libris: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bdS3uWELXGU
    (Yes, I can draw with a pencil too

    --------------------------

    2 More Magic illustrations done 6/8 months ago and now released. This pictures are also appearing in the artbook.




    --------------------------
    A sketch study for the main character of the cover. Kind of way to work on the character design. (Used also as an ex-libris print) :


    Some (very) old painting, with retakes done for putting it in the book :


    --------------------------

    We've finally got a website dedicated to the presentation of the book :
    http://www.worldsandwonders.com/index_en.html
    And with it, a really great video trailer of the book :
    http://vimeo.com/15563139
    I'm crazy about the job my publishers (and friends) have done on this book project. It's so awesome. (And not yet finished

    Amazing cover! Definitely the mix with rendered parts and simple painted lines are a winning combo.The fire serpents are beautiful.

    Thanks a lot !!!!
    Glad to get some cool feedbacks on the cover!
    Yeah I've tried a mix of 2d patterns and realistic parts on this image. Trying to keep a strong graphic approach. The final one will be printed with a 5th silver ink : it's still enhancing the impact.
    It's already on Amazon but Amazon.fr (same graphic layout but different language). But the book is ENG/FR and we'll certainly get some US distribution too (crossing my fingers on that).

    I'm definitely gonna buy it. One month ago, when I was in Bretagne, I picked up a copy of "Merlin" in a local comic shop and it didn't ruin my expectations. The artwork is great (both: yours and Rossbach). So I'm looking forward to the "Worlds & Wonders"
    Congrats!
