The paper moose patrols the borders of sketchbookland, beware his smokey snort, guard against the rattle of his crusty paper-antlers.
I have lately been keeping myself very busy, although I have nothing new that I am able to show for a while, so I am going to put up another page from my graphical interpretation of the Burial Of The Dead by T.S. Elliot, I give you fear, in a handful of dust.
My graphic interpretation of ‘The Burial Of The Dead‘, the first quarter of ‘The Waste Land‘ by T.S. Elliot which is featured in issue 22.1 of the Gulf Coast Literary Journal. You can check out the whole thing by picking up a copy of the magazine.
Also, to mix things up a bit and show a little bit of my process here on the blog, here is one of my rough pages from when I was working on The Waste Land project. This page looks very similar to the final, which isn’t always the case, we were happy with the atmosphere captured in this sketch and wanted to maintain that in the final artwork. My roughs are messy.

I don’t often work in greyscale, so I worked up these little drawings just to remind myself how much fun I can have with it. They are: Adventurer’s Tent, Forest Dungeon Entrance and Woodland Campfire. These three pieces are available on illodeli.com under a single use license, if you are into that kinda thing!
