There Was a Lot of Pepper Dust in the Air...



Slightly dodgy photo of first finished spread from forthcoming picture book with Neil Gaiman. Click to enlarge.

Awesome! As usual, sir!

Carl V. said...

Very cool. Makes me want to read the rest of the story. NOW! ;)

Hope the wait isn't too terribly long.

Kelly said...

Amazing! And I am so psyched about the pairing of you and Gaiman!

Rotem said...

My god--that panda butt is just irresistible.

KMB said...

Outstanding. Rex and Gaiman. Wow! Traditional media rather than digital?

Adam Rex said...

Thanks, guys!

Yeah, mostly traditional, KMB. Oils on top of a digital print of my P-shop color study.

Sue said...

Love it! Fanciful!

Christina said...

That's wonderful! When will it be out?

Nonni said...

Delightful! I'm a school librarian and know how much this will appeal to kids!

sarah Davis said...

That's a cool idea! What do you seal the print with before you paint? Or is that a trade secret?

Adam Rex said...

Will be out in fall of '12, Christina.

sara Davis: Just regular old matte medium.

I could look at this for hours. Can't wait to see more.

This makes me so happy.

Mike Burns said...

Your characters are tons of fun! Looks great :)

Looks great, Adam. I love the palette, and the paint's added some lovely texture on top of what we saw at IMC. Good luck with the rest of the book, can't wait to get hold of a copy... Neil Gaiman AND Adam Rex in one book?? Terrific!

crystaltrulove said...

So I'll be the skipping record and repeat that it was my thought precisely that a Gaiman-Rex team sounds brilliant. How did you two meet and decide to do a project together?

Luciana Vasconcelos, "Lupe" said...

Wow, amazing illustration! :)

Amy said...

I don't think I've ever been this excited about a toddler book! LOL The painting looks amazing!

Gypsi said...

I can not wait! What an awesome partnership!

Vinod Rams said...

The little Panda bear has goggles on. I will be buying this book.
Beautiful painting!

Beth said...

I read an interview with Neil Gaiman where he said he was determined to write a children's book that could be published in Mainland China, about a panda that sneezed - is this the book!? So excited that two of my favorite authors are teaming up!

Adam Rex said...

This is it, Beth!

Love that whale short-order cook!

Anthony VanArsdale said...

Beautifully done, Adam. You've got to be proud of this one.
