The Bat Tower

Oh, by the way, Chapter 14 of Shadow Bay is now up...

Above is a preliminary sketch from Chapter 15, of Detective Paduano looking at a bat tower on Sugarloaf Key in FLA. I had no idea what a bat tower looks like, so I actually had to Google this. I could've just made it up, but I decided in this case I should make it a fairly real bat tower. So, there it is...

...and Merry Xmas, also.

Colossal Mountain

While taking a break between chapters of Shadow Bay, here's a small drawing on cardboard:

Colossal Mountain, 2009, ink on cardboard, 9.5" x 8".

The mountain could be seen as a metaphor for the body of work that the artist tries to create. The bigger the seems like creating all the artwork for Shadow Bay is like building a mountain by hand, sometimes...

Shadow Bay update

As you may know, if you've been following my blog postings recently, pretty much all of my time & artistic efforts have been taken up with Shadow Bay, the noir-blog-graphic-painted-crime-novel collaboration with the writer Donald J. Rothschild, who wrote the original piece as a stage play, which was then optioned as a movie script, but never made into an actual movie (yet.)

Now, we're up to around chapter 12 out of approx. 18 chapters, so we're in the final stretch. The end is somewhere in sight. A few more weeks, if there are no major distractions, & we shall be done. Then, of course, we have to figure out what to do with the finished piece/s...stay tuned...

Above: image from chapter 12 of Shadow Bay, which will probably be uploaded around Friday of this week.
