The Illustrated Section Update

For those who may not know, I created and run a website called The Illustrated Section at theillustratedsection.com. It is an online store for digital books, specifically those featuring or related to art.

Over the past several months, the site has grown handsomely with lots of comics, picture books, and other art books. There are over 250 books and about 125 artists involved, with the numbers growing steadily. If you haven’t had a chance to browse through the work yet, go and do!

I just gave the site a major overhaul. There’s a brand new design, plus more features for both customers and contributing artists behind the scenes.

If you are an artist interested in selling a book in The Illustrated Section, you can submit a book here.

The digital version of My Sister, the Freak Issue 3 is now available. You can download it in PDF and CBZ formats from my store here. Also, remember to check out Issues 1 & 2. Issue 1 is FREE!

The Illustrated Section Limited-Time Sale

The PDF is also available through The Illustrated Section, an online store containing digital comics and books by MANY different artists and creators. To celebrate the launch, I am offering the download for $.99 this weekend only, and only through The Illustrated Section. After that, it will go up to the normal price of $1.99. Download it at sale price here.

What is My Sister, the Freak?

In case you don’t know, My Sister, the Freak is my ongoing webcomic and it updates with a new page every Saturday. You can read it for free at mysisterthefreak.com. If you haven’t read my webcomic or are behind a few weeks, these digital editions are a nice handy way to catch up. I’ll be starting up Chapter 4 (the last chapter for this particular story) very soon, so this is an ideal time to read the previous issues. :)

Earlier this month I teased about the new online store for digital comics and illustrated books – The Illustrated Section. Well, it’s officially live and ready! Go take a look.

The site includes comics, picture books, illustration tips and tutorials, and artist sketchbooks. Everything is in PDF format and instantly downloadable. It’s perfect if you are looking to fill your iPad or other mobile device with awesome stuff.

There’s some great content there already. Some of the superb contributors include webcomic artist Mike Maihack; Escape From Illustration Island’s Thomas James; podcaster, comicker, and teacher Jerzy Drozd; picture book artist Will Terry; zero2illo.com founder Jonathan Woodward; children’s book illustrator Bob Ostrom; and many more.

Plus, I am now offering Issue 1 of my webcomic My Sister, the Freak for FREE only in The Illustrated Section! Go get it, and check out the selection of other free downloads on the site. http://theillustratedsection.com/free
