Floating Cities, adventures underground, etc.Posted: July 29, 2011
I’ve been doing some illustration work for a book being written by someone I know; a young adult novel that includes a floating city, flying ships, etc. Here is one of the drawings I did that the author likes a great deal (a floating school / city). It’s not 100% there yet, but it is on its way.
In addition, I’ve been working in the garden pretty much non-stop from spring. We have a fairly large plot this year with cucumbers, peppers, squash, corn, collard greens, beets, chard and other things that do well in Michigan. In the spring I had to build an 8 foot tall fence to keep the deer out. The lettuce is finished (but was surprisingly long lasting). Here is some of one days harvest — what we can’t eat gets preserved or frozen.
Finally, a shout out to Chris Cilla; a comic book artist whose work I recently discovered and enjoy. I got a copy of his book, “The Heavy Hand,” and, although I haven’t had a chance to read it, my first peeks have me excited to do so. “The Heavy Hand” seems to be about two groups of researchers studying the critters who live in a cave and a hapless character named Alvin who wanders into their midst.
