Immediately following the highest grossing month (May) since 2008, I experienced one of the slowest and lengthiest early summer droughts in years (June-mid July). This week there appears to be some signs of life starting to pop up (a meeting to discuss some work for a local client tomorrow, and another book project just popped up out of nowhere this morning). This morning I did a ‘self assignment’ just to try and keep my spirits up (the illustration above) which I’ve entitled “To the Victor, the Spoils”. Below are a couple of black and white illustrations I did for Green Prints Magazine last week (or the week before, I’ve lost track of time).
Day Eighty Three
Another rough sketch, this one for the upcoming ‘witch’ book cover that I’ve been doing every year for the past five years about this time.
Day Eighty Four
Working on finishes for a book cover of ‘animal jokes’ for Baker Book House. More to come tomorrow.
Day Eighty Five
More animals for the Baker Book House project. The Hippo and Monkey are for the cover, and I’ve also been asked to do several inside animals for sprinkling around the text (these will be in bw, but I’m doing them in color anyways and then converting them to greyscale). More to come.
Day Eighty Six
A few more of the animals for the Baker Book House ‘Animal Joke Book’ project.
