A Wrinkle in Time - WIP

A Wrinkle in Time illustration: inked! I'm getting really excited about this one though I still need to do the text on the banner. Anyone have any lettering ideas?

A Wrinkle in Time- WIP

Starting to sketch out my next illustration. Since this one is going to be much more complex than the last two I opted to sketch it out in Photoshop first. Next I'll print out the sketch and use my lightbox to refine and enlarge it. I'm looking forward to this one - A Wrinkle in Time is one of those books that has always stuck with me ever since I first read it and this was always one of my favorite scenes. Hopefully I can do it justice!

Ozma and Tip Final!

Growing up, my mom obtained a collection of almost all (if not completely all) of the sequels to the Wizard of Oz. For those not in the know, after The Wizard of Oz, L. Frank Baum went on to write 13 novel sequels that introduced new characters and locations that expanded upon the Oz universe. After Baum, a number of other writers wrote sequels as well (but they really just were never as good). Over the course of a couple of years, my parents managed to read her entire collection to my sister and I as bedtime stories (click through the jump to read more).
