Sketches from the Wayward Children Series

There’s a cool post on the blog showing all of my sketches from Seanan McGuire’s Wayward Children series. I absolutely love the series, and so every time I get an assignment to illustrate one of the books, I go a little crazy and give AD Irene Gallo many *many* prelim sketches. Only 3 sketches are taken to final for each book, but the blog post gathers together all the previously unseen sketches, so you can see the ones that didn’t make the cut.

New Work: Silk Screen Poster

Swan Lake by Rovina Cai

Here’s something different – I recently created a silk screen poster for Black Dragon Press. They are producing a series of posters based on classical ballet, and this is the first one, inspired by Swan Lake. The most exciting (and most fun to work on) part is that the illustration is reversible! With Odette on one side, and Odile and Von Rothbart on the other.

I never thought my style would work well as a screen print, but I’m absolutely delighted with the result! Kudos to the folks at White Duck Editions who did the separations, and AD Nicolas Delort who patiently guided me through the entire process.

The poster will be released on Friday, and you can find all the details here:
