We may be quiet, but we’re still here and still working.

Those who pre-ordered their special editions of Magic of Myths: season two recently started to get their prints that came as part of the pre-order package. And we’ve had nothing but compliments for Sergio’s lovely artwork. Each print features a character from the series to date, specifically requested by the customer. And as all of them were happy with us showing you their prints, we’re going to display them here, over time.

Here are the first two…

The super talented Sara Dunkerton has created a detailed process of how she created the impressive plush Byron, right here: saradunkerton.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/magic-of-myths-byron-plush-bear-pt-1.html.

It’s a great read and if you’re looking to get a toy custom made or want to learn how to create a plush, it’s invaluable – take a look!

Byron is all ready to meet his San Diego Comic-Con press eye-to-homicidal-eye…

Sara Dunkerton has done *incredible* work to bring Sergio’s artwork to life. This is what the popular Magic of Myths character looks like in our comic:

And this is what Sara started of with:

Which ended up as this:

Pretty amazing, don’t you think? Take a bow, Sara!

Byron will be making his public debut on the Clockwork Watch/Magic of Myths table at San Diego Comic-Con next week  – we’ll take plenty of snaps for you to see how he’s received there!

It’s been a while since we checked in on Sara Dunkerton‘s work on the first Magic of Myths plush – let’s see how Byron is getting on, shall we?

The white paper is where his armour is going to be when Sara has finished – which will be very, very soon…

Artist and toymaker Sara Dunkerton is getting closer to finishing the first Magic of Myths plush. Crazed bear Byron now has a nose, ears and eyes (or rather, one eye, seeing as he lost one in the story when he… ah, yes… we’ll tell you that tale another time. Don’t want to ruin the surprise).

Take a look:

He’s getting there! More to come, soon…

We’ve been teasing you with this the past few weeks, but the cat – okay, maybe ‘bear’ is more accurate – is out of the bag. The wonderfully talented Sara Dunkerton has been hard at work creating a plush version of everybody’s favourite slightly-homicidal-one-eyed-former-king-now-slave, Byron. Here’s what he looks like in the book:

Byron2 Byron3

And here are the latest progress shots from Sara:

Pretty good likeness so far, don’t you think?

Byron features in both Magic of Myths: season one and the forthcoming Magic of Myths: season 2, with a big part to play in season 3… but let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves just yet…

We’ll show more progress as Sara gets closer to completing the full model.

We’re counting down to the opening day of our Magic of Myths: season 2 pre-order offer – only one day to go! Find out more by visiting http://wp.me/pSxcG-fe.

Next Friday we’re opening up pre-orders for Magic of Myths: season two. Then you’ll get the chance to buy a copy of the book, delivered to you for launch day, 26th July 2013.

And we’re doing something very special for pre-orders.

Everyone who pre-orders a copy of the book, will receive a LIMITED EDITION copy of Magic of Myths: season two.

This consists of:

– The main story (67 pages, across four chapters – that’s over twice the story material of season one) and the following extras:

– A special, limited edition cover (of which you can see an early version above)

– Seven pin-ups (with some of the artwork you’ve seen on this very site) by Magic of Myths artist, Sergio Calvet

– A sketchbook section

– The full script to Issue three (which is the big turning point) of season two, along with commentary from the creative team

– A free digital version of the book

Furthermore, the first 10 pre-orders will receive an exclusive sketch from Sergio, featuring any character you want from Magic of Myths – your choice.

Be warned:

This edition of Magic of Myths: season two is limited to the point where once we stop taking pre-orders at the end of June, the Limited Edition of the book will NO LONGER BE IN PRINT.

So to own this version of the book, you’ll need to pre-order *before* 1st July 2013. Once it’s gone, it’s gone – you’ll still be able to buy Magic of Myths: season two after that, but it’ll be the regular edition *without* the above extras.

Pre-orders will be open from 31st May 2013. The first 10 will get a sketch from Sergio, along with their book when Magic of Myths: season two launches on 26th July 2013. If you want to be in with a chance to win a sketch as soon the pre-orders start, we strongly recommend signing up to this site using the side-bar on the right (near the top of the page) so you know as soon as the pre-orders go live.

New to Magic of Myths and want both season one and two?

You’ll be able to buy season one *and* the Limited Edition of season two at a combined, discounted rate. There are plans for a combined ‘all-in-one’ book as well, but this will be just the regular editions, so again, without the extras which are exclusive to the Limited Edition.

See you on 31st May!

The  Magic of Myths mystery item gets a bit bigger and more defined:

Starting to look a bit more familiar? Maybe a flick through Magic of Myths: season one will help.

The talented Sara Dunkerton is working hard on the next steps…

… we won’t say what yet, but we’ll show a few work-in-progress snaps:

Obviously it’s something to do with Magic of Myths, but can you work out who it is? Any early correct (and clean!) guesses will win something nice…

There’s a talented someone crafting this, but we’ll reveal more as time progresses…
