Exciting news! After sharing some ideas with my soon-to-be-publishers Tin House Books, the book collecting all of this Moby-Dick art now has a tentative title and a tentative publication date. It's looking like the book will be titled Moby-Dick In Pictures: One Drawing For Every Page and that it will be published in either October of this year (to coincide with the first British publication of Moby-Dick) or November of this year (to coincide with the first American publication of Moby-Dick).
This is really thrilling and still kind of terrifying. It almost doesn't seem real to me yet. For me, still, this project mostly means an exhausted me sitting in a closet drawing or painting pictures of harpooneers and whales, not publishers and books and ISBNs and my name on the spine of something sitting on some bookstore shelf. Still, Tin House has been a sheer delight to work with, and I can't thank them enough for taking a risk on this project and giving it a chance to live on outside this blog and the internet.
Back to work for me. I only have 19 pages left to go before my task is complete.
