I recently recieved a pdf showing the final design of my book jacket. The Witches Kitchen will be released in september 2010. I wrote about 55,000 words and made about 40 illustrations for this book. The color will shift a bit but since my editor at Little Brown gave the ok to show it I couldn't wait any longer.

Here is the pencil that I worked up for the Illustration Master Class in Amherst. I had a great time, the teachers were incredibly generous with information and advice and the other attendees where great fun to hang around. I wanted to put up a good scan of this piece...it goes to a new home next week.

Here's a random sketch from one of my sketchbooks. The scan is a little contrasty but hopefully I'll soon have access to better scanning equipment. I aquired a scitex scanner...old tech but strictly speaking still closer to production quality than what I'm using now.
