Nelson Boles : Animation

Nelson Boles with “This One Time” is at it again, this is one of my favorites of his.  I wish someone would give this guy a grant or funding for a feature.  There are very few who can pull off silent movies, much less silent animation well, and this is entertaining every bit of the way.  He certainly has a talent:

The Island and the Plough : Cover Art

Things are moving really fast for this project; I love it.  Here is the cover for “The Island and the Plough.”  In keeping with the entire style, the cover is, of course, black and white.  The format is going to be square, likely 8″x8″ but it will mostly depend on the publisher/printer specs.  I have seen other square sizes in either 7″x7″ or 10″x10″.  I’d love some feedback, so by all means post any critiques or comments.  Cheers, Jack.

The Island and the Plough : Hard at Work

My inkings in progress.  I have a fire under me this weekend for some reason; I hope to accomplish a large majority of the illustrations for “The Island and the Plough” (or “The Island and the Plow”) so I can get into the computer at do the typography.  I specifically designed this project to have a lot of negative space, which plays into the story, to keep the project manageable since so many of my past projects quickly become overwhelming.
