Its been a while since I've updated! The Morae River was featured on io9.com recently. That was quite a surprise! The book seems to be selling pretty well so far, although I'll be taking it down at the end of November. I initially wanted to take a break from the project but it really isn't letting up - as in I can't stop thinking about it. I'm assuming this is a good thing and I'll keep working on the project although I'll be slowing up a bit due to other projects.
Also, the Morae River show went great! Thanks to everyone who came out to see the work! I really appreciate all of your support! I'll be opening a store online soon to sell some of the prints I have from APE. I'll make an announcement through all of the various web portals I frequent once that is set up.
I'll be posting some new work on brynnart.com and this blog once the art "goes live" so keep an eye out for that.
This Tuesday I'll be giving a demo at CCA in Bob Ciano's Typography for Illustrators class. I'll be going through how I color animals for The Morae River in photoshop. I will be filming my process and will hopefully have it on here and HeyTutti.com. That should exciting, I don't think I've ever talked about how I work so it should be interesting.
I'm starting to get some work done for "Tiger Tea" - a children's book I had an idea for a while back. I had made a smaller dummy of the book and am now looking to finish it. I won't be uploading too much work from it until the final sample book is created.
Most of my time is now going to filling up FishHook Studio.com which has been suffering from neglect. I might even drop it all together and squeeze it into brynnart.com to make things simple. I'll have to think about it...
Other than that I'm just trying to get to December. The image above is just a random drawing I decided to take to color...it isn't really finished.
