A look at the last year or so.
Yeah, I snuck those black and white images of the Snowshoe Company marine and the Tyrant's "Jawbone" guard in there even though I haven't posted them before.
Hope you dig 'em.

New stuff that is.
a color version of the Sorceror and an image of a child soldier, maybe in Congo, maybe Sudan. The horror is the same either place. I'll revist this material soon. It's worth scrutinizing.

Some Arthurian Goodies

These are from the current issue of read magazine. The images are copyright Reader's Digest. Read delivers really colorful and surprising material to their readers, and it's always a pleasure to collaborate with them. Cheers!

New Sorceror Piece

I got some good feedback from Jon about regarding the graphic elements necessary for a successful cover illustration. In "A Score of Empty Scabbards" I had some scattered swords a bit too low, that would be hidden by author and publisher info, and a moon taking up some prime real-estate up top that would likely interfere with a title.

I suppose I just took it for granted because it was my own design and title. When I've done covers for White Picket Fences and Graphic Classics I always had the template, I knew the parameters and could structure accordingly. Live and learn.
This Sorceror is designed as an interior illustration. So apart from an optional caption, there likely will be no copy on this image.

I hope you enjoy the progress, and please chime in if you notice I'm overlooking a flaw or interesting tweak. Cheers!
