Stuart's selections from SDCC now on SNB website

Stuart selected over 70 books from leading artists at San Diego Comic Con. A live-link list is now on the Stuart Ng Books website homepage

Each title on the list is a  LINK to the book with images and more info
Stuart is the preferred retail/mail order option for many artists who exhibit at SDCC and other conventions, but don't wish to fulfill mail orders or run their own online store.
Since Stuart works directly with the artists he is able to be a unique resource. Yes -- he sells books, but what Stuart really does is a service industry --- connecting artists and fans. He provides sought-after sketchbooks and convention items at fair prices --- both what he is able to pay to the creators and offer to the collectors.

Stuart's site is an alternative to the frenzied on-line auctions that happen when sketchbooks can't meet demand, often due to fans and collectors not being able to get convention tickets etc. Sadly, artists don't see any of that inflated, after-market price for their work. That's why many artists tell their fans: I sell directly to Stuart and you can get my books on his website. (Also.. FYI... when Stuart knows an artist is exhibiting at a convention and selling their own books at their booth or table, Stuart purposefully does NOT stock those books at his booth and instead directs customers to the artist).

Stuart Ng Books ships worldwide. with a reputation for meticulous care in packing and a convenient way to pay and track orders via his online store. These benefits have helped Stuart Ng Books earn the motto "The Artists' choice for books on illustration, animation and comic art."

Here are a few of my favorites...

A new collection of paintings and drawings by Bobby Chiu and Kei Acedera.
Bobby & Kei created an exclusive illustrated bookplate for us to offer with this book! It is signed by both Bobby & Kei.
From the introduction:
In the summer of 2013, Bobby and Kei took a chance, cleared their schedules and decided to take a month break in one of their favorite cities, Paris.
While working for the entertainment industry is fun and exciting, it is also important to make time for personal art, and make art just like when you were kids- for the pure fun of it.
This book is a collection of the art they created during their stay.
