This week has been another non-stop work marathon with things moving forward on many fronts. Getting a lot accomplished, but never enough.
UPDATE: Robotech®: The Expeditionary Force Marines™ – July release
I have focused much of my attention this week on Expeditionary Force Marines™. Writing, editing, coordinating artwork, getting input and approval from Harmony Gold. Art directing had me working closely with many of the artists by email, by phone and in person. A large number of concept sketches for aliens and mecha have been created and submitted to Harmony Gold. I’m happy to say that HG has been on top of things and getting back to us with fast approvals or valuable suggestions and changes. Many of the new mecha designs are damn cool and I can already imagine them as game pieces for Robotech® RPG Tactics™ down the road. Art has been coming in from Allen Manning, Brian Manning, Chuck Walton, Ben Rodriguez and Michael Wilson. All doing a fine job.
Meanwhile, I’ve been working on the final edit and all manner of things for Robotech® and Rifts®, and other business matters. As soon as the finished artwork is in and approved, Expeditionary Force Marines™ gets typeset, laid out and sent to the printer. Definitely a July release!
