My work space is usually cluttered as I work!
These photos show full colour studies as I am working on characters and their setting. I usually do a number of "finished" studies so that my editor and art director can see the style for the illustrations.
The sketch of "Wee Seamus flew with the stars." is taken from one of my sketchbooks. I am a tentative drawer and in 1992 I decided that I needed to do at least one pen-and-ink drawing a day to gain confidence in building up my ink lines. You may notice that my lines are very "sketchy"---I go over and over the lines with a 005 Pigma Micron pen to build up the thickness.
