Books are here!

Wow! I just completed a great weekend visiting art schools and art stores in the Northeast this weekend. I spoke with the Copic warehouse yesterday and got some great news...


Shadows and Shading
My new Shadows and Shading book is back from the printer and is now shipping!! You cannot buy it direct from us, but you can order it from your favorite local store or online. This book is devoted to beginners who want to learn how to put their shadows and highlights in correct places to make things look dimensional and believable.

If you are local, be sure to stop by our book signing party on Friday, March 4th at DIVA art gallery (Broadway & Lincoln in Eugene) from about 6 to 8pm. You can purchase copies of the book from us there, and see some of my artwork on display. It should be a great party, so stop by and say hello and get an autographed book.

Later this week I will have some more exciting news, and I hope to upload some photos from my demos this weekend on the Copic facebook page, so be prepared! Have a great week!

I just checked Amazon and Barnes and Noble and wasn't able to locate your book--boo hoo. Can you tell us where we can order it from.

I just checked Amazon and Barnes and Noble and couldn't locate your book. Can you tell us where we can buy online? Thanks

I to have checked all the online places and have come up empty handed even the local art supply. Help us Marianne your our only hope. :D

Mrs Ham said...

Congratulations Marianne. I will be hunting for that book, because I really need help :).

I was so excited to see you were coming to demo in NJ at one of our local stores last week. But, as luck would have it, I had to be in Pa with my husband for some surgical procedures that day! I am really hoping to take the Copics Intermediate class with you and hope you will visit NJ again soon. If not, I'll just have to wrangle a trip to the West coast, maybe when my husband next visits his family in Oregon.
I can't wait to get your book. Do you know where it will be sold online? Are there any signed books for sale?
Thanks for all your superb online training!

Would be way cool if you would offer a signed label we could add to our books when we buy them if we send you a self-addressed stamped envelope. Possible?

First of all Congratulations. I would also like to buy a copy of the book. I have had not been successful finding it on line. Any help you could give would be appreciated. Any autographed copies in the Seattle area? I live north of Seattle. Thanks for your help.

Awesome news! I am very excited and heard all about your book today from 'Melanie' a dear friend who had the opportunity to meet you last week.

I love coloring with Copics and despite many classes, feel that I still struggle with the shading. Melanie thinks your book and ideas for achieving this are awesome and now I can't wait to order the book.

I've been a blog follower for a long team and great admire your fabulous artistic skills.

CONGRATULATIONS and my best wishes!

What a great book! I would LOVE to have a copy! It’s so helpful to those of us just getting used to our Copics! Not to mention the techniques it teaches! Thank you for the opportunity to win this wonderful book!

Although I think I can color, I definitely am lost when it comes to shading. Love that I can now get a book to help me out!
