Ancient Book of Myth and War


I finished four of the five pieces I was slated to do for this book. I had enough layouts for 10+ pieces but time got the better of me. I'm still working on those and others for future projects. The artwork from the other guys (Lou Romano, Scott Morse, Nate Wragg, and Ricky Nierva) looks incredible. I think it's gonna be great. Hopefully the book will be finished in time for the gallery show in March. I'll post more details as we get closer to the date. For now here's some close-up details of my four pieces. The top two and bottom left are gouache and the bottom right is digital.

Some of the best guys in American animation self-publishing a book of artwork - more power to you! Hope it all goes well.

DON!! Are you the same Don who used to illustrate the puzzles in the back of Adventure magazine? If so, I always loved your drawings and designs. I remember seeing your name on a Dexter's Lab. episode and said to myself, "No way, that can't be the same Don." Is it?
