    Figopedia... volume 2?

    Many years ago, I bought the figopedia book. Decent read, I thought.

    But earlier on today, a friend asked me if Id ever heard anything about book two. Now, I remember hearing that it was meant to be the first in a series. But then... I never heard anything more. Did anyone else? Was a second book ever actually made? Or has the project been discarded?

    You’re a legend! So it’s not vanished into the aether, it’s just got a long lead time between books

    I know with the first one he wrote in French then it was translated and checked (John Keys had a hand in that) so it takes some time.

    Legend may be a tad strong... but I'll take it. :-)

    I love looking things up. I get interested in something and start searching.

    Now I'm thinking about getting the volume 1 book.

    Volume 1 was interesting, it’s nothing hugely revolutionary but it’s pretty well presented and got me to think about colour and light a bit more and differently.

    Plus, if you get it now, you don’t automatically get the free “woman with her bits out for no reason” model, the queen of death. Which is a bonus

    If he'd released that a decade couple of years earlier, I think it would have broken my mind. Colour theory and light weren't things I was considering when putting paint on a figure. Loved his work for a long time.

    It's a well presented tome, and he usually has copies on his stand at Salute every year. A second volume would be interesting to see, as his work remains gorgeous - but don't know how his style has progressed in recent years.
