I've finished my illustration: THE WILD AND THE ELOQUENT for our new collaborative anthology -

Encounters with the Imaginary

Boneshaker Press-Volume 1

 

 

We will be running a Kickstarter the beginning of August to fund the printing of the book! Keep an eye out for updates, so you can get a copy!

 


Though I can't share the full illustration yet, I wanted to share some of the details (esp the cats, which I had so much fun painting!) as well as some WIPs and progress from the making of the illustration. 

 


These cats are one of my favorite parts of the illustration and I liked them so much, I decided to create stand alone,

mini paintings from them as supplementary material to the illustration. 

 

 

 

 

These are some of my early sketches and studies I did to prepare for painting the illustration. These early steps save me from so much heartache later in the painting stages, because I have already worked through a lot of ideas.
