New Book: A Perfect Human

I am more than excited to announce that my latest book is officially released!

This story is quite a bit different from the others I have done, both in illustration style and narrative. While this one still has dark overtones, it is more contemplative than the others.

On a chilly October afternoon, a group of seven children brutally murdered Harold and shoved his body down a storm drain.

Here is another one of my favourite images from Crosswalk. In fact, this illustration is sort of the crux of the entire story.

Don't shoot an albatross...

Profile of a Woman

I suppose this is really just another hair study. In some ways I find drawing hair with pen & ink instinctively easier, and in other ways much harder.

Study, study, study...

Poetry of Death

This is a recently commissioned illustration that was done for a dark poem dealing with death.

I really enjoyed the process on this one. Aside from the subject matter (which I felt a strong affinity for) it was quite exhilarating to ink.

In looking at this again, I think my favourite part of this whole thing is the mountains and sky in the background.

Cosette and Fantine

This is a small sketch I did a number of months ago and actually forgot about. I just found it a few days ago when I was rifling through some stacks in my studio.

I remember not liking it at the time I drew it, but in retrospect I feel comfortable posting it.

"Filled with unrestrained panic, the girl fled."

Here is once again, another pen & ink illustration from my book "Crosswalk."

While there are certain elements of this drawing that I was not completely pleased with, I think that the hill with the grass on it came together all right.

Leaning on Hand

I did this portrait sketch several weeks ago, and have had it hanging over my drawing desk till now. I know I am a fool for portraits, but somehow I am really attached to this one. Everything just seemed to fall together as I wanted it to without much planning or thinking.

Harold became a shoe polish salesman and did not enjoy an undistinguished career spanning thirty-eight years.

This is one of my favourite illustrations from my last book, Crosswalk. If you would like to find out more about the book, or get a free pdf file of the entire story, click here.
