ABP: Goblin Market Layout.

I did some roughs before this stage. This is the preliminary pencils.
I'll print this off in blue on heavy paper, and do the ink work refinements.
There is a lot happening on the page, but I try to keep the focus
on Lizzie. This is the most involved work I've done in a while,
I hope you like it. Colours will be done after inks...should be a while.

There are a few artist working on the Pin-Up Book, all with a take
on Illustrated Classics. The final product will be made available

Thanks for visiting.

Artist Block Party 2.

Still playing with this one. It is a collective effort,
but not a communist party.
Many colours of collaboration.

The first image is inspired by a pencil sharpener, the second
hints a nib pen and the third a painters pallet.

Goblin Market: Preliminary Sketches.

 There are a few sketches for the Pin-Up project.
Getting a feel for the characters and setting.

I am still influenced by Frouds, Rackham and Housman's goblins.
I'm trying to find something that suits me. I'll do a few more
pages of sketches and work out a composition layout.

Artist Block Party.

June 17th to June 19th. There will be lots to see and do.

The Artist Alley and Small Press exhibitors are putting together
a pin-up book under the theme of "Illustrated Classics".
 It will be a full colour, perfect bound,
comic format book. Details are yet to be finalized.

If you would like to participate, please contact me.
We are looking for the best quality image you can produce.
Think "Book Cover or Movie Poster" standard, there are
no guarantees that your work will be selected when you submit.

The publisher requires first printing rights in this collection. Artists
retain all copyrights to their individual work. At some point we may see
some royalties of sales and complimentary copies.

There are more discussions happening on Maple Ink Forums.

Thank you.
