I've been so busy lately with post-production on The Condor and starting editing and calling retakes for Mosaic that I've hardly had a moment to breathe. Quite a difference from when I had plenty of free time to sit around and was able to do some of these drawings that I posted earlier. Actually I still have a few sketches I made during that down time that I think I might get around to posting sometime soon...or maybe I'll save them for next year's sketchbook.
Anyway the reason for this post is yesterday when I arrived home for work there was a big box filled with the X3 books I illustrated from HarperCollins. It's great to see these things in print - especially right before I start on the next set of books based on Spider-man 3. I can see now that what I thought was almost too bright wasn't and I need to go a lot brighter than I ever would've guessed. I should also be a lot clearer for the inker on the coloring/activity books ...or at least, check his work afterwards. HarperCollins seemed happy and so did my son, who colored them, since this was the first thing he could show his friends that he had printed.
Here's a couple of choice pages (sans text) that I thought might whett your appetites...feel free to click on the links to the right if you want to show your appreciation and purchase these fine examples of my art (and show your appreciation for this blog)...if not, I'll understand
