Never Ever

Here's a book I was working on that I am very pleased with. The assignment was to take a short story or poem and design a book with imagery and text. I chose A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings by Gabriel Marquez. I really missed drawing and illustration so I took it upon myself to create all the imagery by hand for this piece. The whole book consists of 11 spreads, but these are the ones I like most. I'm really disappointed in myself for not keeping up with my illustration work. I always feel like I have the potential, but I could never find the time to improve. Whenever I see really good work I tend to get a little too jealous. But I'm not the kind of guy to dwell on it. I just need to decrease my sleeping time to 3 hours a night, and get cracking!

Always do your own illustrations-- or at least USE illustration. Superior.

Great work man.

Haha and in reply, no-- but did you see those illustrations james jean did that ARE?
