I'm still in Hawaii, but deadlines are deadlines and I am spending much of my time drawing. I sent off the art for UY 166 and the cover for 168 today.

The cover was drawn on 2-ply 500 series11x17 inch Strathmore Bristol with a 10x15.5 image area.

rough pencils drawn with .5mm HB mechanical pencil. I an just dealing with shapes and composition at this stage.


Finished pencils with .7mm B mechanical pencil.


Inked with Koh-i-Noor ArtPen and Platinum Carbon Black ink.


Erased with Sumo Grip eraser.


the finished cover.


Alternate, unused, cover design.

I take this (#32) will be an entire Ishida book, in a way.

And no, please, I'm not complaining :) :)
