Fantasy Art & Mythical Creatures

My work on The Stone Guardians fantasy novel series has sparked a relatively new subject matter for me in the form of the characters, places and concepts from the books.

I am now in the midst of writing the third of a four book series. The paintings that feature the characters and concepts from the books are rich in colour and are evolving into a more detail style.

It has been a steep but rewarding learning curve to tackle these new subjects and do them justice. Much of what I am working on comes from my imagination and scenes from the books. It requires either taking my own source photos to match scenes or working through multiple sketches to get things correct.

I plan to publish a hardcover illustrated version of the books. For now, the books are available on Amazon as ebooks and trade copy paperbacks with limited illustrations . I have also completed two Companion Sketchbooks for each of the novels with behind the scenes content and a focus on the artwork.

Visit the Illustrations page to see  the drawings with their distinctive detailed  style: soft layering of graphite and white pencil crayon on toned paper.
