Flood waters receding
This cover above, for the Library Journal, was one of my more interesting assignments in recent memory. A mixture of old world style scratchboard with modern digital equipment, and, like most magazine covers, trying to keep things interesting yet unobtrusive in areas where type will be overlaid. I had a lot of fun with this one, and I've also included a larger version which can be viewed by clicking on the above image.
I also had an illustration for the Chronicle early last week, which is pictured below.
Things have slowed down a little bit here in the first week of May, or just seems like it, because I've several projects on the board with generous deadlines. Been nice to have a little free time to go out and enjoy this beautiful spring weather. We had a bit more rain than usual in April, and the river is just now starting to recede, leaving me with a big clean up job in the back yard.
