At Gin Lane's End.
I have been awful hushed of late, and I apologize, but it has all been in a very good cause, because the Gin Lane Gazette is now fully illustrated. I'll be finishing off the art direction and typesetting with the fabulous Lisa Hunter over the coming days, and the book is scheduled for release on November 6th. A book this intensively researched, designed, and illustrated was always going to take a long time to fruit on its branch, but we're very nearly at the plucking stage now, and I thank you all sincerely for your incredible plucking patience.
Many of you have pledged at a level that entitles you to a caricature of yourself as a Georgian bigwig, and you can rest assured that you have not been forgotten. We will sort out the logistics of this in due course, and I'll begin work on them as soon as I'm able. We also have a launch party to organize, and we'll be right on that particular case as well. I think we should make the dress code 'Georgian-inspired'. What do we think...? At any rate, I hope you will assist me in making it a night of riotous 18th-century fun.
In the coming days I shall post a few teaser pictures from the 100+ pages of cartoons I've been working on over the past few weeks. I hope you enjoy them.
