|Illustrator, lurker, haunter, professional day-dreamer.|
It's been a while since I updated my journal, so I'm just dropping a line to let all my watchers know what's new.
First and foremost, my coloring book, Alice's Wonderfilled Adventures came out in May, and it's been incredible to see what so many talented colorists have done with it! It's almost like a collaboration, but with thousands of people - it's really exciting!
I was also fortunate enough to be hired to create the artwork for the companion game to Universal Studio's Snow White and the Huntsman sequel, The Huntsman: Winter's Curse now available on Steam and PS4. It was an enormous project, but very rewarding to work with two big studios on one of my favorite movies.
Next, I've got my own illustrated book coming out this November! H.P. Lovecraft's The Cats of Ulthar, fully illustrated and designed by yours truly, and it is available for pre-order right now through Amazon! I really can't wait to share this one with all of you!
I've got three fantasy illustration tutorials coming out later this year as well with 3DTotal Publishing in "Masters of Sketching" and a new volume of "Sketch Workshop." I hope to have release dates for those soon.
And in one of the strangest and most surprising events of this year, I was astonished to hear I'd won the Hugo Award for Best Professional Artist of 2016 - one of the greatest awards I could receive. I sadly couldn't make it out to the awards ceremony as I was at the time on my way to my grandfather's funeral, but it looked like a lovely event, and of course I am deeply honored.
Next month marks my 10th anniversary of being a Deviantart member! It's hard to believe, but at the same time it does feel like a lifetime ago when I first started posting here... So much has changed in my life, and my work itself has developed so much over the years. I've been going through my deviations and redrawing and repainting many of my old favorites, starting with my fairytale series. So if things start to look different around here, that's why!
Prints are of course still available in my online shop, and most of my escapades are detailed on my Instagram and Facebook pages, so head over to your preferred spot to keep up with my new work and adventures!
And last but not least, I don't check in on DA much these days, and my comments and notes have reached an alarming number. I don't think I'll ever get around to answering all inquiries individually, so I thought I'd mention here that anyone who's got a professional inquiry regarding hiring me for their company/freelance gig, please contact my agent, Dawn: firstname.lastname@example.org
