Literary hierarchy or just a mess?

I’m doing research at the moment that I hope will end in a suitable top ten list. For now though it is mostly an adventure - Thanks Pia for the inspiration.

I guess there is a hierarchy with any list, in the case of books my favourite book is Cod - A Biography of the Fish that Changed the World. A good read indeed add it to the pile in your impressive drawing.

Perhaps hierarchy, but pretty scary stacks. That's what some of my messes for projects look like.

Great illustration!

Bella Sinclair said...

Oh good heavens. Didn't you hear about that poor person in New York who died by being buried under stacks and stacks of books and newspapers and magazines? Please, please please be careful! Fantastic illustration -- the tension, the perspective! Wow!

I think he needs taller stilts.

Thanks for all the sweet comments!

Impressive perspective emily. Very nice and original! Good luck on scouting for a publisher. I will be the first one to buy a copy once your artbook hits the shelves.:)

Josh Frost said...

Dude! You have a great style! I was wondering if you ever have done a Darth Vader? I am creating a tribute book to George Lucas called "100 Ways to the Darkside" where I am having 100 hand picked artist create Darth Vader. I would love one for the book in your style. Please let me know if your interested!

Thanks a million
