The editor asked for a slight revision to Chapter Five (in “The Sun Also Rises”), so I took the opportunity to make a revision of my own to Chapter Three. I had noticed after rereading that I had neglected to pay attention to some costuming description on one of the characters in this scene. Glad I got a chance to catch it before publication.
As we head into July, I’m finishing up the last few illustrations for ‘The Sun Also Rises’ (two of which are pictured above and below, with one more to come tomorrow), and just before our weekend festivities, I finished up a quick turnaround piece for Delaware Today on Black Men’s Social Clubs of the late 1800s (pictured at bottom).
Getting down the final four on this “Sun Also Rises” project I’ve been working on this month. I’ve been enjoying this project a great deal. I think illustrating fiction is one of my favorite things to do. Anyhow, here’s the latest in the twenty image series.
Just realizing that the first month of summer is already almost over, and seemed to have passed in the blink of an eye. I finished up the Harlem Renaissance book for Penguin this week (one sample of the 80 or so black and white illustrations is pictured below), and I’ve been plugging away at the illustrated edition of ‘The Sun Also Rises’ for Skyhorse (above, and a few below from this week, also see previous postings from this month). This week was also complicated by a power outage on Friday, plus a few quick turnaround assignments that I’m trying to squeeze in for Delaware Today over this week and next (one of which is pictured at the bottom of this post).
More progress on the Illustrated edition of ‘The Sun Also Rises’ for Skyhorse Publishing. These take about half a day each, and the rest of the day is spent on the Harlem Renaissance book for Penguin (samples to come next year sometime when it is published).
