Society of Illustrators West, 52

Beowulf graphic novel I learned over the weekend that one of my art pieces was selected for the Society of Illustrators Los Angeles, 52.  Many thanks to all the judges!  An exhibition of all selected works will be taking place at the Center Stage Gallery in Burbank this spring, March 7 - 30, 2014.

This image is from an interior spread of a graphic novel version of Beowulf, and the entire project has been one of my favorite and most challenging to date.  I can't name the publisher just yet - the publication date keeps getting pushed back and it is now slated for 2015.  However, I do have permission to show the work!

Many thanks to ADs Dianne Cassidy and Kathy Reynolds for selecting me for this awesome project and for all the freedom they allowed me from start to finish.  Also a big credit to designers Kathy Meisl and Michelle Groper for putting all the intricate pieces together for the final book!

I'll show more work from Beowulf and share a little bit about the process in future posts.
