Healthy Change of Pace

Hudson Valley, Llewellyn, Today Media

Today I caught up on a few additional assignments that have come in around the margins of the ‘big project’ this past month. It felt good to be doing something different than what I’ve been doing non-stop for the past three weeks. The above assignment was a two page spread for Hudson Valley, and below is a book cover for Llewellyn. I may take the weekend off, but then will diving into another book project at the beginning of the week.

The website may be off and on over the next few days/weeks, as we have decided to change hosting sites, and need to switch the website over. Hopefully it goes without a hitch, but you never know. Thanks for your patience.

Still awaiting the green light on the graphic novel project. Above is a spot illustration for Hudson Valley I did this morning. I have a lot more paintings to post but I’ll do that in a separate entry.

The Dan Rather ‘What Unites Us’ book project has been pushed back to a start date of the beginning of April, so I was happy to have a few smaller projects to keep me busy this past week. I’ve also started a larger project for the ABA which fits in nicely with the spare time I’ll have over the next two weeks. Above is an illustration for the Common Reader about a very strange tradition down in Texas, and below is another Hudson Valley illustration on a woman’s sabbatical to Hudson New York.

And also in the “keeping myself busy” category, I’ve dug my old oil paints out of mothballs, and have begun painting again. Hopefully I’ll have something to post along those lines in the near future.

Still in a Holding Pattern

Still awaiting the green light to start a few upcoming book projects, so in the meantime, I’m working on a future project as a collaboration with my son. Above is another concept drawing, this time visualizing what sort of mounts our characters would be riding.

Also, while awaiting the ‘big projects’, I had a few quick turnaround pieces for Today Media, pictured below, one for Hudson Valley and the other for Delaware Today.

Rapidly Approaching 57

Seems like just yesterday I was celebrating the my 50th birthday, and now here I am suddenly facing down my 57th. Been a slow start to 2019 so far, but I have a few big projects that I’ll soon be starting on (hopefully next week), and in the meanwhile I have been doing a few quick turnaround pieces (above for Delaware Today, below for Hudson Valley), and I’ve been working through a series of 8 full page scratchboard interiors for Llewellyn’s “Witches Companion” for this year (I’ll share these next week when I’ve got them all completed).
