The Art Of Progress (or is it the other way around?)

Hey everybody! Sorry I was gone so long… No real excuses for you this time around. But I’m back to share some progress on my book project and I’m very excited about it.

I’ve already introduced you to both of these characters and you’ve already seen some art. But these are two (more or less) finished pieces. Really beautiful stuff by Stephen Oakley. He deserves a lot of credit (and hopefully a lot of new fans!) for this work. It’s exciting in an indescribable way to see characters you’ve lovingly stoked to life in written word be given even better life in visual style.

But enough of my 1 AM rambling! Here they are!

First is Old Pantomime:



Next, as if that wasn’t enough, is The Willow King:


I really hope you like them. Please let me know what you think. And try to imagine the book these belong to. It gets better each time I imagine it. 🙂

    • Yeah… I was afraid of that visual connection. :/

      In the earlier post where I included an earlier sketch of that character, he had parts of his body that were bloated and monstrous. It went a long way towards a more original look. Hoping to get back to that before we publish.

      Thanks for pointing that out. Helps me see I’m not the only one who thought that.
