Talking with Kevin Costner About His New Adventure Book by Darla McDavid, October 17, 2015

the_explorers_guild: The “Novitiate”—our mysterious order of black-robed men, dedicated to preserving the City’s secrets—have developed certain crude technologies for probing and extracting suppressed memories. Jon found this doodle in an old notebook and passed it on to Rick, as Rick was doing concept-work on one of the strange machines used by these men.

the_explorers_guild: Sloane and Bertram, as conceived by Jon around 2007-8

the_explorers_guild: More early renderings of Evelyn and Ogden, in the original, exaggerated character style.

the_explorers_guild: Repost @ursula_uriarte . thank you for the shout out. We can't wait to hear what you think. #ExplorersGuild #epicadventure #read #OctoberReads #

the_explorers_guild: A hybridized graphic/traditional novel was more difficult to explain than we’d thought. Jon mocked up some of the opening layouts to help put the concept across.

the_explorers_guild: Come meet us on our #ExplorersGuild tour @barnesandnoble Union Square NY 10/20!

the_explorers_guild: Reaching back even farther, this is part of a proposal that Jon, his brother Chris Baird and Keith Quinn brought to Kevin in 2007. At the time, the project was still called The Explorers Club, and opening scenes centered on the “hermits, the insane and the inebriates” who’d had glimpses of the City, and were now being visited by the mysterious Mr. Sloane.

the_explorers_guild: More early visual development work. This is a study of one of the outer rooms in the Explorers Guild’s Manhattan lodge. A living member of the New York Explorers Club, on seeing this image in 2008, asked when we’d gotten the chance to see the club’s interior; but any similarities—we swear—were purely coincidental.

the_explorers_guild: Another capture from an early animation test. We had old engravings dipping in and out of antique maps, not to illustrate any specific story points, but to give a broader sense of our subject and tone.

the_explorers_guild: Bertram was originally collected at a castle-like orphanage in Norway, in the story’s opening scenes. The early focus on Bertram tended to give readers and viewers the impression that this was a story for and about young children. Later versions of the story corrected for this, setting our tone in the Near East before we went looking for Bertram.

Lucy Wills ‏@EslLucy tweeted: Photoset: Kevin Costner wrote a book? *squeal* I love Kevin Costner. That man, specifically as Robin Hood and the Bodyguard, is almost entirely responsible for my sexual awakening....

Kevin was shown on Entertainment Tonight this evening, October 19th: Nancy O'Dell said, "and also tomorrow we are at home with Kevin Costner." They show Kevin saying, "I'm not afraid to invite people into my life." Nancy O'Dell says, "Opening up about his wife and three young kids." The interviewer asks, "How do you run after a five year old." Kevin answered, "You just say, I got a candy bar. Come over here," laughing.
