Incubation is a brand new unique sketchbook by Charles Burns in that it focuses on his color work.
The images within were selected by the artist from his notebooks from the period during the years when he was working on his Nit Nit trilogy (X’ed Out, The Hive, Sugar Skull). This booklet offers a first-time look into Burn’s color process with examples of his sketches, conceptual drawings, color studies, and notes, etc… all presented beautifully in full-color throughout. It is a great companion piece to his previous sketchbook Echo Echo, a collection of his graphite pencil sketches for his best selling book Black Hole.
