    New on pg. 15 trying to contribute 6.8.2013

    So I figure it's been long enough since I have contributed here in any meaningful way. Of course once you see my work you might think I still need to contribute in some meaningful way. I do have an excuse though; every time I try this I seem to screw it up somehow. This time I am determined. And even though my work is a little different, I'm hoping someone might enjoy it. I also finally posted a gallery. CA is a great place.

    Yeah, I know it's not what we're used to seeing here but a new flavor now and then can't hurt. Thanks for the kudos and I've enjoyed the whole west coast art scene for quite awhile now, so Mark Ryden and Juxtapoz are right up my alley.

    More Illustrations

    Here are the front and back cover, and some chapter heads, for a teen fantasy novel by Kate Saunders,"The Little Secret". I re-did the third chapter head, too scary, but liked it anyway. I did them for Feiwel & Friends a division of Macmillan Publishing. The novel will be released this Spring.New on pg. 15 trying to contribute 6.8.2013

    I just love this work! I don't know why you are worried about the 'meaningful' bit - the meaningfullness of this work is precisely what distinguishes it!
    I'm absolutely nuts about the 'octopus thingy in the deep sea diver's helmet' one!
    I also like the way you do not let your imagination be lead by vigilance of your style. Beautiful work!

    Wow, great illustrations! I especially like the ones in your first post.
    It's very refreshing to see something new and different from what is normally showed on the forums. Thank you for sharing!

    Thanks all. Chris, the meaningful thing is about me coming here but contributing only small comments here and there. Hopefully I will be contributing more from here on out. I like this place.
