Here are a few sketches I did after work. Of course this is from The Lord of The Rings, specifically The Hobbit. I picked it up the other day and then sketched these to get loose.
I just received a big commission that will keep me preoccupied for the next few months. Also I'm in a rush to finish a few projects before October, a deadline I've set for myself for a reasons regarding work, so I'm not sure how many "illustrations" I'll be posting. For fun I may even digitally tint some of the sketches I do post along the way so this blog will not be devoid of all color! Sketches can get pretty bland.
New book's out! This one's from a couple months ago.
And a few interior illustrations.
The Call of the Wild is available through Magic Wagon, a division of the ABDO Group or your educational wholesaler.
I've also been meaning to post about the Gulf oil spill. As one who lives on the coast, it's not easy I can tell you. Economically things were bad enough before this happened, but with much of the local industries dependent on the water, things quickly went from bad to worse.
Jimmy Buffett's sister Lucy has been doing what she can to help and is promoting a T-shirt to raise money, something I've been involved with over the last few weeks (life can be adventurous in strange ways). Lucy has a restaurant near the coast, LuLu's at Homeport Marina - you can check out her website and more about the shirt by clicking here.
