    Alright! Just spoke with the main man at the publisher (IDW) and he informed that 35 copies of the book were mailed to me yesterday so within a week or less (I hope!) I'll actually, finally, have a hard copy in my hands. You all will be the first to know when it's finally here. Best, Joe                                                             As a teaser, here's the storyboard (by director, Kevin Altieri) of one of the cut scenes from the video

    THEY'RE HERE!  I just received my first set of the "Pearl Jam: Art of Do the Evolution" books. And in all modesty, they look and read, PRETTY DAMN GOOD! 
    To say that this was a "high" for me to finally hold these puppies in my hand's is an understatement. It was a five year process from the time I first pitched the idea of doing the book to IDW. Five years. The irony of it taking so long to do a book about the record breaking 12 week production of the actual video is ironic to say the least. 
    But it is done and published. And done well! I think you will all be pleased by the almost overwhelming wall of art, graphics and text. It's easily the most unique "Art of Animation" book that I've ever seen; a true fusion of animation and the rock and roll aesthetic.  The designer at IDW, Robbie Robins, did an amazing job of assembling all of my text and proposed images into a roiling and compelling tidal wave of art and text. 
    Thanks Robbie. It was worth wait in the end. 
    Here's some photos of the proud "dad" with his baby. That beautiful woman with me in one of the photos is my lovely wife and muse, Lisa. She's also a talented artist/designer in her own right who along with Tina Oliva did all of the character color design for the Do the Evolution video.
    Additional thanks to IDW Editor-in-Chief, Ted Adams for green lighting the book, editor Chris Ryall for all of his hard work, co-producer Terry Fitzgerald for his friendship and fantastic behind-the-scenes text and massive support for this effort, designer Brad Coombs for providing his story of jamming with Eddie, director Kevin Altieri for his extensive 10 page interview, and the Man Todd McFarlane, for contributing his bravura Forward for the book. And of course, Eddie and the band for sanctioning and approving the book and our text. 
    Lastly, thanks again to all of you for your patience and friendship. I'll announce the scheduling of book orders and the extended schedule for the mailings of the Special Editions in the next few days.

    There's a delay in my order and might come by Nov 12. Weird because I ordered this in 2018

    Initial run was 3500 copies. You'd think I was safe since I ordered in 2018.

    Nice!  I have a special edition coming from Joe.  I had ordered one from Amazon way back and forgot to cancel it, but that's been delayed anyway.

    I've got an order reserved for the 100 copies of the Special Edition books and IDW has assured me that they are in stock from the first print run. So the Special Edition copies will be First Run Edition.
