AWWW YEAH! Whose House? Shuck Yeah, it’s OUR house!
I know I’ve mentioned Scott Sigler’s works many times before… and I will continue to do so for a long time to come. Why? Because his work is fan-friggin-tastic and he and his Director of D∅∅m at Dark ∅verlord Media, A B Kovacs, are just bloody brilliant people. Literally bloody and brilliant. They are EEEE-VIL, don’t you know. :-)
Scott Sigler’s third limited edition hardcover book in his GFL series, the All-Pro, is a rip-roaring joyride into Quentin Barnes’ third Tier One season in the Galactic Football League (GFL). The All-Pro is as good if not better than his previous works on many levels. It’s just amazing. The story and concepts he is delivering in his GFL franchise are top-notch and he’s really coming into his own as a writer. Alone, just the story is enough to make you say, “wow, this guy is the next Stephen King… he’s gonna be big!”
And if his Fan-frickin-tastic story isn’t enough, yours truly (yes, me: Scott Pond) got the rare opportunity to design the 16 page color insert in this baby. To say I was humbled and overwhelmed and excited is an extreme understatement. I mean, come on… it’s Sigler and his ever delightful Director, A Kovacs. Who wouldn’t be humbled, overwhelmed, and excited to work with two such Amazing people?
What I like about these two is that they have a clear vision of what they want and where they want to take Scott’s work. With such a clear starting point, the process of creating something visually for them is at the same time easier and much more critical. They really pulled out the best of my work on this one.
In this gallery, I’ve included pictures of each of the pages from the insert, an example of what the front and back cover looked like before and after I worked my PhotoShop magic, and details of the stadium pictures I put together for the insert. I have to say (with as much modesty as I can muster) that this is one of the projects that I’m most proud of. Thanks Scott and A for the opportunity!
While you can get a glimpse of the insert here, I have to be honest… the best way to see the detail of this is to order a copy. A and Scott did a great job putting this book together and it is, in my humble opinion, one of the most professionally produced books I’ve seen, one that I’m proud to have in my collection.
