Clash Of The Dark Serpent

On august 1, Quest Of The Gods: Clash Of The Dark Serpent is published by Usborne Publishing. I contributed the cover colour artwork & the interior greyscale illustrations.

Like the previous volumes (mentioned earlier in this blog) it tells of the ongoing adventures of a young boy in ancient Egypt, as he rises from poverty to become Pharaoh. Set in a world where gods aren't just mythical beings sitting on clouds in the sky, but are real... & often very VERY big!! Aimed at approximately 8-14 year olds, they are rip roaring adventures where the hero & his friends career from one cliffhanger to the next. Ideal reading material for bored kids when the British summer serves up it's usual menu of rain followed by more rain.

Here's the cover, & some of the interior artwork.

Miss America: Better Late Than Never

I wanted to do this for American Independence Day, but pressures of actual work meant it got put on the back burner, so not only am I posting this (on this side of the big pond at least) on the 5th of July, but I had to down size from my original plans for this image to this quick pencil sketch tarted up a bit in Photoshop. Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right?

So to all you colonials out there, a belated Happy 4th of July.
