Can’t believe 2017 is already over. Here are some things I did this past year.
I continued doing freelance this year. Below is the cover for the latest installment of the Green Ember series, Ember Rising.
I also did around 20 interiors.
Heather and Picket spend a lot of time separated, and it was difficult to come up with a scene that included them both in the same space. My wife talked me through the composition above, which ended up working great.
I got to do another cover for a Green Ember Prequel, The Last Archer.I did this cover in a week, while I was working full-time and also teaching. I’m pleased with how it turned out.
I also had the chance to Illustrate Doug McKelvey’s beautiful book, The Angel Knew Papa and the Dog.
This is a beautifully written book and I’m happy to have played a small part in it.
I also continued working at BJUPress illustrating textbooks. Here is a sampling of some illustrations for the upcoming British Literature Text:
Here are a few from the Textbook Stories of the Old Testament
And here are a few from a 5th grade Reading Story.
As I mentioned earlier, I also taught a digital illustration class at Furman University. It was a full year. Glad it’s over.
