NEWS WATCH: Budding Comic Book Creatives will Learn Tips and Tricks in THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO COMIC BOOK LETTERING this October
Award-winning secretary Ringo and Eagle and Blambot.com founder Nate Piekos share his picture of the comic book world in the upcoming The Essential Guide to Comic Book Lettering. This instruction booklet will hit the shelves of Image Comics in October.
Piekos provides readers with the most comprehensive tips and techniques ever published on the subject of digital comic book recordings in this grueling guide. It covers everything from letter template creation, emotional dialogue and dynamic sound effects to developing design skills and building a lettering career in the comics industry.
“For years I have been posting lettering tips and design theory on social media, and one of the most common follow-up questions I get is: ‘Have you ever considered writing a book about this? “, Said Pikos. “Because well-executed letters are an often overlooked part of the comic book reading experience, very few people realize how much graphic design skills are required to do the job well. I felt it was time to write an exhaustive guide to the art of digital comic book recording for anyone interested. “It’s a ‘deep dive’ into the subject that aspiring letters crave.”
Piekos has provided letters and design for almost all major publishers: Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Dark Horse Comics, Image Comics, Oni Press and more. Its fonts also appear in video games, movies, commercials and product packaging. Microsoft, Six Flags Amusement Parks, Charles Schulz & Associates, New Yorker Magazine, Gap, Penguin Random House and Sony are some of the big companies that have licensed designs from Blambot.com.
The basic guide to paperback comic book trade (ISBN: 978-1-5343-1995-0) will be available on Wednesday, October 20th and in bookstores on Tuesday, October 26th.
