Robot Dreams

August 08, 2007

I just finished reading Sara Varon's Robot Dreams and I just want to tell people how much I like it. The story is so simply complex... so beautiful, both in it's message, and in it's drawings and colors. I don't want to give anything away... but if you are one who has traveled and met, loved and lost, it's a very romantic and warming story.

Also during her signing she gave cookies of the main characters away. Mine broke a bit.. and I just didn't know what to do, but eat them. So I scanned them first. Sara is fantastic cartoonist and a very talented baker.

Sir Lancelot from sketch to final

August 03, 2007

Just a quick post to all you crickets out there. I thought some people might find it interesting to see the evolution of an idea... albeit a very simple idea. This is the first cover idea I quickly jotted out in my sketchbook. I wanted to show how for no reason other than it was Sir Lancelot, did he have the recreant knights on the run. Then when I realized the image was boring... but on the right track, I thought it would be cool if he was careening over the knights' sheilds... that the would be so afraid of him that they became a small hill for him to conquer. So I scribbled this. After I got it approved by the art director, I basically coppied it verbatim here. The final image was drawn on bristol inked by the brush pen I raved about in the last post. I hope everyone is having a good weekend.
