Preview: Short Story Collaboration

Here's a preview of a project I am working on with a couple of friends on the east coast, a short story written by one of them, plucked from a dream she remembered.  I happily agreed to illustrate the story, which is in its conceptual stages. It centers on the experiences of an alley cat who good-naturedly shares his knowledge to any felines who by choice or circumstance find themselves confronted with life on the streets. It is, in essence, a personalized survival manual for would-be alley cats. Below are a few selected concept sketches.  

I've tried to keep it to a limit so I don't spoil too much.  I'll keep you posted as the project progresses and particularly when we have a finished story on our hands, ready to distribute in some shape or form.

Turtle Project

So I'm a bit overdue with posting so I thought it was about time that I gave an update.  This is one of the projects I've been working on for a non-profit organization involved in the conservation of sea turtles.  The images of the hatchlings above were created to represent the three main turtle species they work with, the Leatherback, Green, and Loggerhead turtles, respectively.   They'll be used for for various promotional purposes, including use on a t-shirt, as well as the creation of a new logo.  More to come soon.
