Last year I did some chapter illustrations for my friend Paul Angone’s new book, All Groan Up: Searching For Self, Faith, and a Freaking Job!, which was just released today.
Following are a few of the drawings, along with their original sketch ideas. (And yes, these are all egg-people.)
Yes, I know—It’s been ages since I’ve posted anything that looks like it took longer than fifteen minutes to scribble into existence, but the above book cover illustration is one of the reasons for that, actually.*
Since this was a fairly complex commission, it required a more thorough process than I usually go in for (plus, the guy actually expected it to look good or something). So thanks to that extra planning work, I get to show the various stages of development. Just like a real artist!
27 Nights is available for Kindle now, with a print version coming soon.
Further work-in-progress for the upcoming Artist Militia group topic. (“Further?” You query questioningly? Yes, subscribing to my twitter or Instagram feeds sometimes turns up even-less-fit-for-public-consumption behind-the-scenes peeks such as this.)
Rosemary suggested an armadillo, so this was obviously the only way to go.
Work in progress for an illustration project.
Final version coming later this week, probably.
I had just finished looking at a bunch of old space adventure illustrations when it hit me that this was obviously the direction I needed to go next. And since it’s been a while since I’ve done what could really be called a “complete” illustration, I decided to put a bit more work into it than usual. Stay tuned.
Okay, so awhile back I mentioned a new Stickman Bob game that was to come out sometime last winter. It of course hasn’t yet, but the new plan is to release it near the end of summer. There are a couple of reasons for the delay, but one of them is the plan to actually populate the university bookstore with official Stickman Bob shirts around the same time. Above is the initial design.
