ROGUES continued

My illustration for "Tough Times All Over",  Joe Abercrombie's jaunty tale of thieves who stalk one another dog-eat-dog through the dark alleys of tomorrow.

I'm illustrating another book for Subterranean Press.  This one will be the most ambitious project they've ever undertaken: a big, lavishly illustrated collector's edition of ROGUES edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozios.

My illustration for The Rogue Prince, GRRM's newest addition to A Song of Fire and Ice, appears on the cover.  It features Prince Daemon Targaryen in a story set generations before the dramatic events of A Game of Thrones.

Forty illustrations (five full color paintings and thirty-five black & white drawings) are required to illustrate this anthology of stories by twenty-one of today's top authors. The ROGUES gallery of characters includes thieves, knights, Nazis, necromancers, monsters, grifters, gangsters, zombies, high-school teachers, temptresses, time-travelers, bounty-hunters, warriors and wizards -- a smorgasbord of subject matter for any illustrator.

Each illustration, whether painting or drawing, is being conceived, designed and rendered for graphic beauty, forceful characterization and drama. 

I'm deeply gratified to know that ROGUES quickly sold-out in pre order, as did the copies that I will remarque. We're sparing no effort to make this very special volume one to be cherished by those who love and value illustrated books.
