Our very own Ben Wolstenholme at the #MicrosoftEvent early this morning breaking in the new #SurfaceStudio with some Mono!
I must rectify and apologize as quickly as possible for my oversight in this demo, I failed to credit Fin Cramb for his beautiful color work. It's an embarrassing oversight and I hope people who know me will attest that it's not in my character to lay any claim to other people's work or process. I had originally intended to use a MONO cover image which I color myself, but later I changed my demo to show a dynamic sequence from the interior pages for impact at the end of the demo when we show the Motion Book in action. In amongst all the technological points I was trying to make I failed to give proper credit for colors - which is unacceptable and not my intention at all.
My intention was to show my personal working process across all my creative steps on MONO - so I did a live demo of thumbnails, pencils and inking - those specific areas, my intention was to keep the rest of the process summarized and as simple as possible for the sake of a concise demo. But that is by no means a fair excuse for this oversight.
For full clarity, this excerpt is from MONO - The Old Curiosity Shop and full credits go to; Liam Sharp who co-wrote the story with me, Fin Cramb - who did all the coloring of the interior pages, Lettering by Jim Campbell, Evan Limberger and Kevin Buckley who handled the Motion Book build, and Box of Toys who created the MONO music and sound design. And Ben Abernathy who was Editor of the book. The MONO character is created by me.
I wasn't expecting to mention all these people in the demo but I really should have called out Fin for the colors as it is such a distinct stage.
I feel terrible about my oversight here as proper creator credit is so important in the world and to me personally. My apologies Fin.
