I'm currently working on a book for a 500 copy press run. The author loves the work I've done so far. It is tiresome work but the joy I bring to people and the thrill they have working with me is a big thank you. This also leads to word of mouth... Yes I'm getting busy, popular and if things keep going, I'm really going to be in need of a raise soon... Lets hope the momentum continues.

be thankful for every little blessings and keep working hard. Be humble in the face of your own greatness. Never let the small things get in the way of greater glories. Be thankful for the generosity of others and never take any moment for granted. You never know when you will have a chance to experience another one quite like the one that just passed. Good things come, keep your head up. Push forward... Try harder... Be better. Nothing else really needs to be said. Now I have to get back to the drawing board...so much more to do. -enjoy.

I thought that it would be a neat idea to create shields for title pages. After a ton of sketching i started to move to famous themes in the fantasy world. Then I moved to plaques and came up with peter pan, Captain hook and a few other great roughs. Here is one of the final images.

I had to keep to my monthly updates. Three dead kings only seems to get traffic from Saudi Arabia... Perhaps they are paranoid that a poor old white creative guy is leading an uprising... Not likely. I have a hard enough time buying groceries. Maybe in another life. Right now I'm just trying to survive through this one life. The story is fictional. Did I mention that it is a story...fictional. International visitors can relax. I'm not looking to upset the international boundaries by imposing my will on your people. I'm living through a forced transition as it is in my culture. I certainly do not want to do the same else where.
