Illustration Published in PLASMA FREQUENCY, Issue 1

The premiere issue of Plasma Frequency has been released. My illustration for Nyki Blatchley's story "Aslahkar" appears within. You can view it if you download a free electronic edition of the zine. Better still, to fully appreciate the illustration, purchase a print copy for $9.99. My art often looks best in print.

This was an interesting illustration to compose. The editor gave me a general idea of what he wanted, but the details of the composition are my own. I think the figures are some of my most emotive yet. Their poses communicate certain emotions, setting the scene emotionally.

This one also demanded a lot of perspective work in the background. I may have fudged the perspective a bit, but the background works. It actually took me longer to draw the background than it took me to draw the figures.

I know artists often think this of their latest works, but my illustration for "Aslahkar" is one of my best yet. Check it out for yourself, and see if you agree.
