I decided a long time ago to post most of what I do on this blog - the beauts and the dogs. Here's a book cover project I did in October while I was trying to get some work with a publishing house. I wasn't totally pleased with the results, but to keep myself honest, I'm going to post it anyway.

Here's the ink.

And here's the finished piece. I did learn a few things about myself and my work while doing this. First, I learned that I'm a GRAPHICS guy. Simple colors, hard lines, not a lot of mixing of colors. I think that's where I got into trouble on this illustration. I tried to make it too painterly, and that doesn't work for me (that's also what the publisher said). Anyway, here it is, warts and all. Comments welcome.
