Summer time and the living is easy, or, at least its supposed to be. I’m busier than ever, smack in the middle of compiling loads of material for ‘The Art of Stardust’ book that Titan will be publishing next year and getting ready to jump into my next illustrated book project, ‘Honeycomb‘ a big fat novel full of original fairy tales written by Joanne Harris (Chocolat, The Gospel of Loki). And, I think a lot of people must have liked my last book project, ‘The Books of Earthsea‘ because it and my art are up for loads of awards this year (Locus, Chesleys and the Hugos). I can’t be everywhere but I will be at my very first World Con in Dublin, Ireland in August. I expect it will be loads of fun whether I win or not.
Meanwhile, some of you may have noticed that its been a long, long time since I had a working website and a blog but I’m happy to have both again. I want to use this blog-space to talk about my art and the process I use in making it as well as about the books and the movies that I like. I’m even bringing back my archive of older posts that detail the creation and construction of the 16ft bronze fountain that stands in the center of my hometown as well as lots of other unusual projects.
It’ll be fun to hang out with you again.
