New Page from the 10th volume of art for my Graphic Novel!

This is the fourth page of the opening nightmare sequence of Volume 10.
It should be the last volume of art for the book... then I have to put it all together and get it published.

Next up!: Super Numbers!

This was a demo piece that I did in a video for SCBWI - WA a week ago that showed how I did the art for Super Alphabet... now I'm thinking that a sequel is a doable.

This week's 15 minute sketch challenge..."Happy to be here"

Having all the beautiful sun and hot temps over the weekend and into this week, I didn't stay at home much or concentrate on anything other then spending time in the sunshine, riding my bike and kayaking almost every day. So, today was the first time I had to catch up on a few things... like the sketch challenge, which reflects the last few days of great sunshine! Hope you dig: "Happy to be here"

Today's 15 minute sketch challenge..."Jumpy"

It's spring and things are a poppin' all over the place. I've got two art shows to put up and a conference in Rhode Island to consider… not to mention all the work that needs to be done at Amazon and the graphic novel that I've been working on for the last 4 years. And as if that weren't enough… I'm speaking to the Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrators this coming Tuesday… with band practice on Sunday and a going away brunch for me friend Jamie. Sheesh… out of breath…. All that came to mind while coming up with this sketch for today's 15 minute sketch challenge. Enjoy. -Mike
