Pre-Order: The Art of Todd Lockwood: Ilse Witch Edition

Hi All,

Grim Oak Press has launched the pre-order period for The Art of Todd Lockwood: Found Worlds! This new art book featuring high-gloss interiors is a wonderful retrospective of Todd’s career up to the present. He did a Kickstarter for it late last year. But Grim Oak wanted to offer copies that will be signed by Terry since the book has interior art from Todd’s work on the Dark Legacy of Shannara trilogy. And not only that, but Grim Oak is offering their edition with a new embossed and foiled dust jacket featuring the Witch Wraith interior artwork from the Shannara series!

There will be no slipcase for this. And this will be limited between 100 and 250 copies depending on interest. 50 of sold so far.

You can pre-order HERE!

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

From Todd Lockwood: I love what I do for a living. I get to be an explorer, an inventor, a biologist. An adventurer. Through my years playing D&D, working for TSR, Wizards of the Coast, and then freelancing, I had the privilege of revealing wonders to people who share my love of the fantastic. I dissected dragons to see how they work. I found friends and companions—from spacefarers in distant solar systems, to pirates and thieves and magicians, to a certain dark elf. Whole cultures, entire races, emerged into the light. Along the road I discovered a world of my own, which is still unveiling. Many of you have been with me every step of the way. Your appreciation of my efforts made it all possible.

Found Worlds will be a record of our excavations together, a compilation of every world we’ve uncovered. I want to put it all in this book, and that’s why we’re here. It’s going to be big, and I want to share art and process for everything from the beginning of my career to all my finished paintings—Dungeons & Dragons, Drizzt, Magic: The Gathering, Warcraft, The Evertide, and countless other realms. Are you ready to take another journey with me?

Introduction by artist and friend, John Avon, with commentary by Donato Giancola, Mark Nelson, Marie Brennan, R.A. Salvatore, and others.

From Grim Oak Press: These copies will feature a different dust jacket from the one featured on the Kickstarter. It will showcase one of Shawn Speakman’s favorite paintings, the Ilse Witch from the Shannara novel Witch Wraith by Terry Brooks. It will be embossed and foiled. These copies will also be signed by Todd Lockwood, Terry Brooks, and Shawn Speakman (since the book features some of Grim Oak’s best paintings inside its covers).
