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.
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.
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).
December has been a quiet month, and thankfully so (I’ve been laid up with a bronchial infection for most of the month, so I’ve been on the couch a lot, and catching up on a lot of reading). Above is an illustration for Hudson Valley Magazine that I finished up this morning, and below is a holiday card illustration that I did for one of my design clients at the start of the month. I’m expecting a rather large project to hit my desk at the start of the year, so I’m getting mentally pumped up for that, plus some more ‘witch’ artwork for Llewellyn. Here’s to my official “30th year in the business” in 2019, and Happy Holidays everyone. Likely over the weekend, I’ll be compiling my annual “best of 2018” post, so stay tuned.
