Just in time for the end of the show, our 28-page comic-sized manual of Aurelian monsters, machines, and mutants is headed to print! Awhile back, we posted photos of the City Beast Studio team at work, and one of the book’s early draft pages.
Here’s the final version of a different page. Altogether the book features 32 original images by seven different artists . . . along with text that’s written as if by an enclave of crusty Aurelian scientists.
This past week, the Daily Steampunk blog reached out to us for an interview about Aurelia. We happily obliged and discussed steampunk’s influence on Aurelia, among other things. It includes contributions from Lisa, Kelly, and the Marketing Director for Theatrics, Nick DeMartino. Read the interview yourself by clicking the image:
Have a seat, relax, and let go of the stresses and turmoils of Aurelia for a while as you have a bite to eat at Octavia’s Gastronomia, a brand-new story location now rendered in full color by artist Julie Roth.
Today, I happily returned to the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design to provide feedback on illustrations-in-progress for upcoming episodes of AURELIA. John Matson and his fantastic pre-college students shared their wide-ranging work and a fresh new vision for Aurelia that will delight our actors and audience in weeks to come.
Over the next week, they’ll be producing concept art, symbology and location designs inspired by the landscape of our fair mountain-bound city. Thanks to instructor and talented professional fantasy illustrator John Matson (whose credits include Magic: The Gathering and Game of Thrones) for coordinating the partnership, offering his students a taste of professional concept design.
