A new coloring book project is now officially in the works for Dover. This will be a collection of ‘Literary Horror’ images, and I had done a sample illustration a few weeks ago in preparation. The editors asked me to think about working in a new style that might facilitate more coloring freedom for the users of the book, so I worked up a new sample this week (after several false starts). We’ll see if this meets with their approval. Below is the black and white line art version.
We tested negative for Covid yesterday – Yay! A pretty mild time of it, although I am suspicious that my sense of taste may have taken a slight hit.
Also this week I did a small illustration for GreenPrints (the magazine has been purchased by another company, so this is the first time working with the new corporate overlords).
