I am delighted to announce that an excitingly wicked time draws near. The release of Wicked Nursery Rhymes III, along with reprints of Wicked Nursery Rhymes I and Wicked Nursery Rhymes II, is scheduled for this Spring (March/April). It has been many harvest moons since both WNR1 and WNR2 have gone out of print and WNR3 was originally planned to be released in 2009. But due to acts of misfortune, untimely distraction, and evil curses, this happening was drawn out for eight grueling years. Other than by an act of God, I feel fairly confident that within a month, I will have the trilogy in hand.
I will be releasing merchandise to coincide with the books. Starting at the end of February, I will be releasing sticker packs and two new prints. In March, I will begin preorders on the books (with a limited trilogy bundle price) along with two new prints and t-shirts for toddlers, kids and women. I will be releasing a total of thirteen WNR prints throughout the rest of the year. I also plan on releasing more shirts and other WNR affiliated goodies.
If you are not already following me on instagram, I have been posting the history of WNR, going back to 2001 when these characters first appeared on shirts sold in Hot Topic stores. The posts include final artwork, sketches, scribbles, notes, ramblings, shirt designs, press news, and everything else that I can think of that centers around the WNR universe over the past fifteen years. Go check it out if this kind of thing interests you.
It will be a very wicked year indeed.
