These are a few illustrations for a book that I have been working on. If it looks like they are a bit rushed or not very well thought out it's because there were a bit rushed and not very well thought out. This was a tough project for me. I don't feel that I ever "caught the vision" of this book. I was not happy with the overall story and the writing was not engaging. I never felt a connection with the project and the work suffered for that. I'm happy with the look of the illustrations but not the design. I think the whole book would look better if I would have gone through the entire process of painting an image in this style a few times to get it right and then work on the final images. I'm living and learning.
