Perth Supanova Clarification

The Perth Supanova convention is advertising Ashley's panel as a last minute cancellation at this years event, which has caused some fans to ask why? The simple answer is that when approached last year to appear at the Supanova convention Ashley agreed to two signings at the 2013 show and did not agree to appear at a panel this year. I can only assume that because Ash has done panels in the past that he was placed on the schedule anyway, thus they had to announce a cancellation. 

At no point did anyone bug out on an agreed upon event, Ash made the decision not to bounce around for a couple of hours anywhere this year due to the fact that our scheduled shows are so close together. We've just done France, we're about to jet off to San Diego and in the middle of all that we have Wonderfest in Japan. Given that we're also working and producing as normal, the decision was made to keep to signings at all events for 2013.

Ash will be signing for a second time at 1PM WST and if you want to talk to him, you're welcome to come along and introduce yourself and say hello.

The Swank

Ashley recently illustrated for The Swank Autumn/Winter campaign. For those of you who are interested in the work produced, this series of artwork will be featured on buses and trams in China and Hong Kong and will be also reproduced in an extensive advertising campaign that will appear in such magazines as Elle, Cosmopolitan and Harper's Baazar.

The Swank stores will also be carrying the campaign in-store naturally, along with a seriously limited line of the female figures who appear in the campaign "Swank Girls" (and Guys!) and "Autumn apples". These figures will be carried from August through to December.

EDIT: For people who are now inquiring, Ashley's own 3A is producing the figures.

A change is coming to WO7174, this will the 0day site where all our ventures will start. From books to film and video games, we re gearing up to share the war!

7174 has been around for a long time now, but it's always been a campsite in the background, never on the front lines! Well that's changing...

The teaming up alone with IDW will bring on a slew of publications including, 7174 magazine, SWALLOWv2, WWR comic and much more, swing bt the IDW booth at SDCC and ask me all about it !

Anyhow, just thought I would share some of my excitement, much more info and stuff to come, you can read all about it right here !

June Update

It's June already! 

Thank you to everyone who came along to see the Paris art show. Paris was amazing, people came from all over the Europe to see it and it was also a great opportunity for us to meet some people that we've communicated with over the years but never actually met in person until now, along with a whole raft of new and interesting people too. Ash met so many amazing European artists this time around, some already much admired, and some entirely new which is always exciting.

The Gallerie Daniel Maghen put on an amazing spread and were wonderful hosts, so thank you to the whole crew! The welcoming night dinner and celebration went on until the early hours of the morning. We will be back. And especial thanks to Olivier, Laurent and family for making this trip to France a  memorable one for the whole family..

I have a new art related date to add to our schedule for anyone who regularly visits East Coast U.S.A. Ashley is exhibiting a number of paintings at this year's Miami Beach Basal. Miami being one of those places that everyone should just visit once to say they've been. Any interested parties should contact the Jonathan LeVine Gallery NYC in advance. The actual paintings will no doubt pop up on Ash's blog before then.

I am knee deep in writing Beautiful War, again previews coming soon...
