I was digging through some old files and I forgot how much I loved this character sketch. So, enjoy the “riveting adventures of Angler Boy.”
I have almost reached the end of the tunnel; who knew I could actually complete a project. I am in the middle of the second to last illustration and only have a handful of pages to do typography. The illustrations have certainly been the most time consuming part of this process, but they were also the most fun. I will still have to give some extra attention to the typography as I want a very graphic style to match the look of the illustrations.
Here is a single page preview of “The Island and the Plough.” I don’t want to post too many internal illustrations as to ruin the surprise of the hero’s journey which is also why I have chosen an image from early on in the story. I will post a more detailed synopsis when I begin to actually market and sell the book but for now this is just a tease:
I have reworked the cover art for “The Island and the Plough” a bit to include the house as to bring in a bit more of the human element considering the story so heavily revolves around a man and nature theme. It seems to have lost some of its perfect symmetry, hopefully for the better in an asymmetric sort of way. It might still need a little more attention to keep the balance right. I am nearly finished with the internal illustrations and hope to post some here; however, not too many as to ruin the story. ;)
