This week’s book sneak peek is the opening spread of Chapter Five: “Caricaturing the Rest of the Head”. This chapter contains 25 pages and over 70 illustrations. It deals with drawing and caricaturing the other features of the face past the eyes, nose, and mouth that were covered in the previous chapter. Split into two parts, “The Lower Face” discusses the jaw, chin, cheekbones and ears, while “The Upper Head” covers eyebrows, forehead, hair (the much asked about subject), and the general mass of the top half of the head.
Book delivery update– Some bad news… the books will now not arrive until the second week of October.
The delay due to color matching issues was finally rectified earlier this week, and the book is approved for printing after a delay of about 9 days. Unfortunately, that caused us to miss our scheduled print window for the printing company, and they are trying to squeeze us in earlier but it might be another two weeks before we actually go to press. To top it off, the printer’s estimates of time for shipping have mysteriously changed since the job was bid, adding over 10 days to the shipping time estimate. Altogether that has put us about a month back from the original ETA of mid-September. That puts the bound books on my doorstep at sometime in mid October.
I have sent this info out in an email to all those who have placed a pre-order. Thanks very much to all those who replied to say “no problem” and expressed support for the book. That means a lot. Thank you.
I apologize to everyone who was expecting a September ship date, but these issues are out of my control. The delay will only be about 2 weeks from the end of September, so I am asking for just a little more patience. On the plus side, the corrected proof looks great, and the printed book should look terrific.
If anyone who placed a pre-order does not want to wait any longer for their copy, please e-mail me at once with your name and PayPal order number, and I will immediately issue you a full refund.
Thanks again to everyone who placed a pre-order, and for your patient wait.
