From ArtOrder- "Can I be a Cover Artist?"


Another great post by Jon Schindehette in his ArtOrder "Ask the Art Director" series; every up-and-coming fantasy illustrator should read it.

January in review

Well, I made it to February! Artistically, January was the busiest month I've EVER had... So far.

One project that was ongoing between December & January finally got released last Friday: I switched up my style a bit for the oil-painted cover of issue #1 of the UK startup Thru The Portal magazine.

I also finished up the Peter Pan collab with Aaron Sikstrom (http://seethrou.deviantart.com. He titled the piece "Trust," which is remarkably appropriate, considering collaboration relies on trust to work, and it's something I've been getting very well acquainted with lately.


I still have at least 4 other pieces from January I can think of off the top of my head that are under NDA until later this month. This month is already getting booked quickly- a couple ImagineFX Q&As on the horizon as well as a really awesome piece for a game box set cover. I'm going to try to make time for a personal piece as well... hopefully.
