Lord of the Flies

Always wanted to do my own version of this book cover. It's basically a graphite drawing with FW and Sumi Inks, then scanned and finished in Photoshop. Barron Storey and Sam Weber are both illustrator giants that have done amazing images for this classic book. I wanted to challenge myself and see what I could bring to the table. Enjoy! (Below are some of my ideation thumbnails for this piece.)

The Sirens of Titan


Final Sketch

Thumbnail Sketches (all 10,000,000,000 not shown)

Here's my tentative final for the book "The Sirens of Titan" by Kurt Vonnegut. I also included some of the the thumbnails I scribbled down during the ideation process. The final execution is mixed media (to say the least): graphite, acrylic, acrylic gel medium, oil paint, and photoshop.

silhouette sketches

Playing around with some silhouettes to break the monotony of rendering. Stay tuned for an update of my most recent project, an illustration inspired by the Kurt Vonnegut novel "The Sirens of Titan". It will be complete with process work and final execution.
