Power in Numbers

The wonderful folks over at Gallery Nucleus have an ongoing show called Power in Numbers, where they've asked artists to contribute works no bigger than 5" x 7". Much of the proceeds from the show will be going towards select charities such as the Red Cross, World Wildlife Fund, and Unicef. I was able to contribute a graphite drawing as well as a small ink study.

The price range for all the pieces in the show is very affordable, so please buy some art and take pleasure in helping a good cause. The piece should be up on the site soon, if you're interested in purchasing either of the pieces please visit the Gallery Nucleus site here or get in touch with the folks via phone or email.

Many thanks to Jennifer for having me take part!

Graphite and charcoal on BFK Rives + Digital, 11"x15"

I will be doing illustrations for Mike Carey's new book The Steel Seraglio, which is being co-written by his lovely wife Linda and their daughter Louise. I had the pleasure of having dinner with Mike and Linda when they were in town for a set of book readings. Just two of the most wonderful and interesting people!

Many of you might recognize Mike from his comic work with Marvel, DC, and most recently the Vertigo series The Unwritten, illustrated by Peter Gross and covers by Yuko Shimizu.

This illustration depicts one of the central characters in the novel, Rem, who is an oracle of sorts. The piece is part of a set of promotional prints for the book, which you'll be able to pick up at the readings for the book, as well as few conventions coming up.

It was really fantastic to hear about his experiences in the industry, and to discuss what the collaborative writing process was like for Sergalio. Getting to know clients and fellow creatives has to be one of the best perks of this lifestyle!
