lazarus Jones


HEEeeeeeeee's back. some of you (one or two anyway) may remember this guy. First created as inspiration for the Johnny Cash classic 'Aint no Grave'. But since then this guy has been hanging around my consciousness. demanding a name, a story. well meet Lazarus Jones. Fairly unpopular in heaven, in hell and on earth. But he's the one with the gun, and the one standing between us and the annihilation of the universe,,,,,,

to the left is the original image of Lazarus Jones

Imaginei Books

A couple of covers and a few of the interior illustrations i did a while back for Imaginei Books. These are young adult/ tween books, the original tales are personalized to individuals. You choose the name and characteristics of the hero, making each book special to one person. As an illustrator this created a challenge in that I could not show the hero or main characters of these stories in any detail.

Orycon

Well for the first time in a long time I went to a Orycon (the last time was like 1999), and this is only the second convention Ive gone to in the last 14 years. It was really a great experience. I met lots of nice people, made a few contacts. But most importantly to me is I got to talk about my illustrations- the process, the thoughts behind them, the stories they tell. Something I dont get to do very much. It can be a lonely business Illustrating. So thanks for everyone that came out and spent time with me, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
The icing on the orycon cake was that my illustrations took home a few ribbons as well, And though they were giving them out like candy, it was nice to get some official recognition. Below are the three images that took the directors choice and judges choice awards
