Unused Advertising Illustration

A few weeks ago I worked on a last minute advertising illustration. They ended up going in a completely different direction, but I thought I would share the illustrations that weren’t used. Below are two versions of the piece. It was intended to be a diptych, as you can see, featuring the South African President Zuma and the skeleton is that of a lion cub.

My Graphic Adaptation Book Proposal is Almost Finished!

It probably seems like I haven’t been doing much of anything lately, but I swear I’ve been hard at work. I was out of town for almost two weeks – hence the relative silence – and furiously working on finishing sample pages for a graphic novel adaptation book proposal.

It’s almost finished and I wanted to share some snippets with you. I still need to color the pages and add text, but I’m so excited about how they are coming out that I couldn’t wait any longer to show someone other than my husband. I am very fortunate to have had this proposal requested by an editor and my hopes are cautiously high that it will move ahead. It’s a project they want to do, I just need to convince them that I’m the one who should do it.



This is a tiny area of a very large crowd scene. It took a lot of patience, but it’s always worth it.


Now to choose the right color scheme, ink one more page, and get to painting.
