This project was for a french publisher. It's to be a book about dragons. They invited me to participate and I agreed even though I'm not really one for drawing dragons. I thought I would be clever and pose some figures around a dragon skull and avoid actually having to draw the dragon itself. This idea didn't fly with them for obvious reasons but I enjoyed making the drawings and concepting it out.

This picture is from the recently published Secret History of Giants book from Templar. I worked on this project through last Christmas and am quite happy to see it out now - in a book shop near you ;). This illustration seems to be one of the more popular ones as it keeps turning up in the promotions. It depicts the giant wearing all his artifacts and doodads.
I drove this painting into the ditch. It happens - it started feeling wrong at about the half-way point. I decided not to put myself through the pain of trying to fix it. However I was kind of happy with these characters so I scanned them anyway. One of these days I hope to get back to it when I'm feeling a bit better about it. Until then .....
