Day 3: The Four Days of Ford

Just completed -- the cover illustration for Jeffrey Ford's THE BEYOND, a 2008 Golden Gryphon release. As soon as I finished reading the book for the first time, I knew what the major painting should look like for this one. Took a couple of drafts though before I got the execution right. In the end, it was worth the effort. Materials: Oil painting / vine / silk butterflies / acrylic / ink / wood / found objects / hand-built assemblage / no digital. Much more tomorrow!

I've really enjoyed the latest art. I always love your paintings and illustrations, but I really dig the hand-built things you sometimes do. Very, very cool!

Happy holidays!
