Any of you who may have come across my Blog in the past, will note, perhaps with alarm, that all of my past posts are gone.
That is because I have turned a corner in my artistic endeavours. You see, for many, many years, I have jumped from one artistic genre to the next, normally comics, fantasy and illustration in an ever-circling ride. But I have decided to go with my first great love- illustration, and in particular, faerie illustration. I have had a keen interest in Faerie lore since a very young age, probably about 4-5. Most of the books I own are Faerie related, I have my own Faerie novel in the works, and if I just let my pencil do what it wants on a page, a Faerie will invariably appear.
So I have waved goodbye to the world of comics, and to fantasy to a certain extent, and plan to concentrate on traditional book illustration, with a slant toward Faerie.
I hope you will join me on this new endeavour, and to give you an idea of what I'm getting at, below is a page from my sketchbook created this very day!
