The view of the little boy have changed.

I was wondering if you were working with models or something to get that precision and constancy in your drawings? Your work is amazing James!

Sorry for the bad english... :)

Very cool. I have the first edition and it is really amazing. Everytime I turn the page, I see something new, even though I have looked at the book a million times.

Is this going to be an on going thing? Maybe see a Process Recess Vol 2 sometime?

Did you know the first printing is going for $185 on Amazon? Yipes!

I, also, am curious about the pages underneath. I like to see what you do with comics, and I don't think you've done nearly enough to suit my tastes. But that's just me.

to answer everyone's questions:
1. the contents of the book are essentially identical, but the color is actually 5% brighter/lighter than the previous version. The sketchbook pages look better/clearer than before, but a bit of depth is lost in a couple of paintings. So 95% of the book is looking 5% better.

2. Yes, that is the penultimate page in a story I'm working on for the upcoming hardcover FABLES graphic novel . . .

totally unrelated but have you ever thought of doing any sequecial works down the road in your career?

shaun white, james jean: two people at the top of their chosen professions--i find it very appropriate that james did the art for shaun's board...
but it looks like the graphic on the board shaun's been riding in the x-games and the olympics has been simplified graphically. All of the wonderful detail in the original art has been edited out (you can barely tell that there's a guy breaking the chains). What do you think James? Will Burton perhaps use all of the original art when the board goes into production?

Wow maybe now I'll get a copy. This company off ebay jilted me for the first edition. Never got my $20 bucks back or the book.

Hi James,

I love your work. I went in today to preorder the new printing of the book, and the Diamond Order Code you have in your post is incorrect - I was still able to preorder it (hurray!) but thought you might like to correct it on your site.

All the best,

I'm wondering if you are going to be putting together a book or collection of images from (Forgive me if you have already answered a question like this in the past). The artwork from this visual conversation is so inspiring to me and packed with so much energy. I'd love to see those available for sale!

Hey All -

I've got a call into my Diamond rep about which order code we should be using.

As far as pre-ordering goes, I've got a call into another Diamond rep to see what it takes to have Amazon & BN & etc. flip the switch so that they can start taking orders on the second printing.

I'll post when I hear something. Thanks for the interest, everybody.

OK... this is what I found out. Diamond Books just sent out the message to the people who control advance web ordering to "flip the switch". So, in a few, people should once again be able to order on those types of sites.

Diamond Comics: If you go into a comic shop, they can "backorder" under the original code of JAN052384. Once Diamond received their copies, the stores can "reorder" using that same code.

Thanks for the answers, Pitzer!
ester - we hope to put together a Polite Winter book once we have more pieces done . . .

I just received the book from AdHouse. It is amazing. My boyfriend, a lover of Fables and all of your work, is going to be thrilled.

And AdHouse (Chris Pitzer) was great to deal with, as a note.
