Paper Dinosaur Sweatshop

On the weekend -some prototypes for booklaunch.
These are working out fairly nice so I think I might do a book of them or otherwise sell- It would be good to get them properly printed both sides.
Would be great  if Hachette (the Dinosaur Rocks publisher) would take them on.

Hottest Dingo-a cover hopeful

I hope this cover gets the go ahead and Dingo gets finally done.
A year later...... but who's counting
that's a year since the start- which is an eternity compared to everything else I've done bookwise
I seem to be very tired lately and making errors.
I can't wait for 2013 but theres so much needs to be done before then.

Need to have a look at australovenator hands somehow- have a feeling his wrists are broken in one,-
so need to fix that

and maybe another look at his head. I don't want the head to look skeletal- I don't know why people draw the heads with all of the hollows of the skulls indicated as depressions- maybe its just to prove thats the one they're drawing. But you don't see lizards or monitors or birds really like that.

Wombat hits the road

 It begins!
Wombat and the Bush Sports Carnival begins again in earnest....
at night.
 heres a start on the cover
I like wombat though...its sort of stylised and relatively relaxing,- plus I know what colour all the characters are.
and Ticklish Tom by day.
Still need to do the cover for the Hottest Dingo,
and finish the dinosaur hunter stuff.

Roughs  for Decay Magazine- well maybe....we'll see
It should be called Lach's world of roughs shouldn't it?
Whipped up this morning because I promised to do something for Decay too long ago.
I'll keep going on the one they pick. Need to design the evil creatures better- they're a bit generic.
The trouble with horror is -all of these made up phantoms are nothing compared to the evil things ordinary looking humans do, or in terms of slow creeping horror the situation we all find ourselves in with the sand running out.

I was wondering where to post them just now- as they're not quite small child friendly and I've got the launch coming up. So they maybe blink out for a while.
I did have other ideas but need to magically finish Ticklish Tom.
Also need to get onto some things for an undisclosed project.
Promises promises.

Dinosaur Rocks Book Launch!

November the 3rd.
2.30 For the kids,
6.30 for discerning dinosaur minded adults who are in need of drinks, nibbles and to celebrate a book.

The Hottest Dingo

Was The Coolest dingo, it's now the hottest apparently.
In Lach's  sketchy style too. Woohoo.
I was wondering what sort of style to do it in originally - and did want to layer in some textures like watercolours scanned etc- I probably still could but its out of time sadly.
I think I was thinking- well "Hattie and the fox" is sort of rough looking too.
Still here are some pages.

Ticklish Tom

I've done some very rough roughs for Ticklish tom, but here is a not so rough cover image.
Well it probably needs work but they needed something for marketing. I still have time.

Some of the rough roughs.
Well I'm not getting much finished stuff done at the moment- but I think my brushstroke economy isn't too bad in these -like brushy haikus.

This should be a nice book.
