Stardust the movie

Monday, March 26th, 2007

I thought that I should let everyone know that the first, official trailer for the Stardust movie went live on Yahoo.Com this weekend.

I don’t know about you but I want to see all of it as soon as possible. I’m very excited!

Also, the website for the movie is now up and running with lots of pretty pictures. Over the next few months be sure to check back as there will be lots more content uploaded.

I will be a guest (along with Charles de Lint) at MiniCon in Minneapolis over the weekend of April 6-8 where I will be, among other events, displaying some of my new Stardust art as well as presenting a panel on the movie (w/ the trailer, lots and lots of stills and whatever else Paramount sees fit to send me). I hope that I see you there.

Best,
Charles

Coyote Road interior Art

Monday, March 5th, 2007

After several very long weeks at the studio I’ve completed 28 b/w drawings for the “Coyote Road” anthology that will be released in June from Viking. This is the third in a series of short story collections that feature mythic themes, each of which are edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling. The first two, ‘The Green Man’ and ‘The Faery Reel’ won numerous awards both as a collection and as individual stories and I expect that this one will too. Several months ago I posted the cover art for this book, so now here are a few of the interior illustrations.

First, the title page art:

Then several of the interior pieces:

From ‘The Dreaming Wind’ by Jeffrey Ford.

From ‘The Evolution of Trickster Stories Among the Dogs of North Park After the Change’ by Kij Johnson.

From ‘The Senorita and the Cactus Thorn’ by Kim Antieau.

From ‘The Constable of Abal’ by Kelly Link.

From ‘The Other Labrynth’ by Jedediah Berry.

The stories are set in varied cultures and time periods and so quite a bit of reference and research had to be applied to each image. The authors, Charles de Lint, Ellen Klages, Delia Sherman, Holly Black, Patricia McKillip amongst many others, all offered their best as I hope I did too in my art.

It took a long time to slot this into my work schedule and for that I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to Nancy Brennan (art director) and Sharyn November (overseeing editor).
Best,

Charles
