TreeHouse Heros and Forgotten Beast Book Review

My publisher, Immedium send this new book review of TreeHouse Heros and Forgotten Beast!


Library Media Connection


Comic book editor, author, and teacher Amara has written a mystical tale. Chau's work in animation is evident in her uniquely designed color illustrations. In a land where rivers have dried and villagers are cutting old trees, the magical beast Zez finds herself in the care of the Treehouse Heroes, five equally magical beings and their Teacher. But when she is captured by the evil General Moon's bandits, they aren't sure that they can save her. With a little magic, some wit, and advice from their Teacher, the Treehouse Heroes are able to live up to their name. Once General Moon is defeated and the villagers are free, they learn that they must care for their land. Zez is free to search for an unspoiled wilderness that she can call home. Comic book and graphic novel fans will find this intricately detailed picture book of interest.

Decorating a children's nursery home






Last week I decorated a children's nursery home. Drawing up the piece with graphit from a loose sketch, and colouring it with acrylics. Hard work, but a fun and very different commission

Air Australia



It's always great fun to create a piece of work, simply for your own enjoyment.   
Grabbing some time to experiment with new techniques also keeps your portfolio fresh. 
Air Australia is a promo piece that I'm going to be using for my postcards and prints.

New Painting for the Jack Kirby show in Seattle.

This is for the Jack Kirby show that's coming up in August. I always loved the way he visually told stories made with crazy bold graphics. This one is taking an extra creature from an old comic book and painting it up in Photoshop while keeping the bold designs that Kirby created.
I wanted to do something more complicated but I've got many other projects that need my attention right now so this one will have to suffice.
