I'm working on some developmental sketches for a new piece for a potential alphabet book, headed up by a good friend of mine. My letter is U, which in this case stands for Undertakers. I don't have much to say on them as of now, since I'm still in the very early stages of exploration on this one. So far though, it's a little like going back to Innsmouth.
If you follow the Picturebook Report blog, you probably know by now that the project has come to an end. It was a group decision that the concept and our volition to complete our respective endeavors had sort of run its course. Once I fell behind with The Hobbit and worked on other things in between pieces, my interest in the series waned. The next two scenes are a couple of my very favorites in the book, but my heart's not in it right now, and I would much rather work on some things which aren't bound to that narrative. I'm proud of the work that I completed and may return to the project, but there will be no formal posting schedule. Thanks for understanding.
