The Sea Forest is not dead!

Sample pg_6-A

Hello, all!

I apologize for not updating in so long. I’ve actually made a big move. I’m talking from NYC all the way to China! Yeah, getting used to a new job and a new country isn’t easy. Unfortunately, blogging had to take a backseat for a time.

But fear not friends; I have a lot planned. I will update you all about my life here in the Middle Kingdom as well as my future projects. I’m currently in the beginning stages of two new books which I am very excited about. They will be a different experience from The Moon Moth, I can tell you that much. Oh, and I will share my sketches and doodles too, just for kicks.

So, stay tuned for future updates, OK? Ok! And please feel free to send me a message with any questions, comments, or suggestions for future posts. I will be sure to read them and answer anything.



Character Sketches 3

This gallery contains 2 photos.

Last installment of this short series of character sketches (scroll down the main page for the first two). I particularly like the way this head shot came out. Would’ve been a fun character to continue drawing methinks. Oh, and I’d like to tell you about a recent adventure of mine. It’s a little off-topic so… Read more.

Perhaps I should go back and color some of these old illustrations. Then again, don’t some things just work better in black and white? Well, maybe “better” isn’t the word. Many masters have worked primarily in black, white and grays and none would argue that their art was found lacking because of it. Edward Gorey, for one, springs to mind. If someone were to go back and color some of his pieces it would definitely change the “mood” but not necessarily for the better. Ok, I’m starting to ramble, never mind.
