6 Fang Marks & a Tetanus Shot
Been on summer break and doing a lot of traveling...sadly this has kept me away from Illustration Friday and getting to view all of the people's work I enjoy. Hopefully I'll be back in full swing within a couple of weeks.
This is a pic I just finished a couple of days ago from a book I read call 6 Fang Marks and a Tetanus Shot. It is a bit of a gift just because there was such strong images in the book and at the time I thought I needed another project as I had finished up several smaller ones....then it took me 5 months to actually get around to it. The gentleman that wrote it is a jack of all trades and I'm not sure how he keeps pace with a family, writing (on multiple fronts it now appears), as well as being the captain of his own fleet of commercial airliners. There is a lot that goes on in the book and it is pretty quick paced. To me it was a bit maddening at times(but in a good way) because it was if you had stolen someone's journal of someone you actually know...and it has the definite feel of 'life' and the true absurdity and choices that sometimes comes with it. If you haven't had a chance to read it you can snag it Amazon.com!
