First time at The D.C.&C.S.
  Like most people that have a love and desire for artistic creation, Austin started drawing at age 7. For over 19 years I have been working in comics on high profile projects in very small doses! I have had the pleasure of inking on books like Iron Man with Bob Layton for Marvel, X-Men Unlimited, 10th Muse/Shi, 10th Muse 800, God Wars and Judo Girl for Alias Comics/Bluewater Productions, Ink Assists on: Tomb Raider & Necromancer for Top Cow, Lettering work on John Carpenter’s Aslyum for StormKing, Witch Girls and Witch Girls Tales for Magna Comix, Illustrated sketch cards for Vamperilla, Red Sonja, The Avengers & Iron Man 3, Wizards of the Coast’s GI Joe, and illustrated a Donald Trump story for Cracked Magazine! I have also done my own projects like 7th Millennium, TAN, Stanley the Snowman and his exciting new project Divine Retribution.

Cary Elwes appears at Book Soup on Monday November 17th at 7:00 PM to sign his new memoir AS YOU WISH!

Press Release:

From actor Cary Elwes, who played the iconic role of Westley in The Princess Bride, comes a first-person account and behind-the-scenes look at the making of the cult classic film filled with never-before-told stories, exclusive photographs, and interviews with costars Robin Wright, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest, and Mandy Patinkin, as well as author and screenwriter William Goldman, producer Norman Lear, and director Rob Reiner. The Princess Bride has been a family favorite for close to three decades. Ranked by the American Film Institute as one of the top 100 Greatest Love Stories and by the Writers Guild of America as one of the top 100 screenplays of all time, The Princess Bride will continue to resonate with audiences for years to come. Cary Elwes was inspired to share his memories and give fans an unprecedented look into the creation of the film while participating in the twenty-fifth anniversary cast reunion. In As You Wish he has created an enchanting experience; in addition to never-before seen photos and interviews with his fellow cast mates, there are plenty of set secrets and backstage stories.

With a foreword by Rob Reiner and a limited edition original poster by acclaimed artist Shepard Fairey, As You Wish is a must-have for all fans of this beloved film.

Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author’s most recent title from Book Soup. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Book Soup events unless otherwise noted. Save your Book Soup receipt; it will be checked when you enter the signing line.

A purchase of this title supports the author and your local independent bookstore! We thank you.
