New website online July 1st!!

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 25, 2010, 1:15 PM
Things have been pretty hectic over the past couple of months in preparation for the launch of the new website. Right now I'm just finalizing some of the finishing touches which, of course, is the part of the creative process that takes the longest. But it'll all be worth it once everyone gets a chance to check out the bigger and better Marketplace complete with new prints and merchandise, a new gallery section complete with new and exciting artwork and new free downloadable content. Also don't forget to catch the launch of the trailer for Solstice, the newest illustrated artbook from Lamin Illustartion & Design, along with the launch of the new website on July 1st. August 27th will then mark the day that the Solstice artbook will debut at this year's TORONTO FAN EXPO.

See you then!

Download the free PDF HERE or by clicking the image below and please don't hesitate to leave feedback and suggestions for future workshops.
