Scholastic asked me to do an updated cover for Avi’s book The Man Who Was Poe ! I got to do a lot of research on this one to get the location accurate. It was my first time illustrating a real place, which presented a nice challenge. I wanted to go a little more stylistic with the architecture, but I tense up when I draw things in perspective. In the end I was pretty happy with how it turned out. Thanks to Natalie Sousa for once again being a great AD.
Huge thanks to Sloane for the opportunity to participate in a Yakuza themed exhibition! It’s an honor to be included among so many fantastic artists. The exhibition will be held at Floating World Comics in Portland, Oregon on September 15th! So if you like Yakuza themed stuff, or just like to look at illustrations live and in person, come take a look :)
