Thanks for visiting my blog and Full Moon Offering # 33 !!!
This month’s homage to the bearers of fang and claw is a departure from my usual posting. For several months I’ve been working on full page pieces for the WEREWOLF 20th ANNIVERSARY book. After endless scribbles, delays, distractions and disasters, the final piece was sent off in the last week of October. This was an enormous relief, as the deadline had been far, FAR exceeded. But what a visceral joy it has been to reunite with the Tribes and their heroes!! I am eternally grateful to the Master: Mr. Rich Thomas for bringing the entire project into being and allowing me to contribute to the effort!
The November Offering consists of a few images from my ceremony of completion.
This page represents the 14 thumbnail compositions that I produced while reading the art descriptions from the sanguineous pen of Ethan Skemp.
Each time a tight pencil sketch was approved a red circle was drawn on the thumbnail. When the full color piece was finished, it was “slashed” with the diagonal “claw” marks.
The menu for my completion feast was drawn from the teachings of the late prophet Warren Zevon. -“A big dish of beef chow mein” (La Choy), a Pina Colada (Sobé), and a gun metal wolf’s head for my phone (Ebay).
And finally a quick sketch portraying the feral satisfaction of the victory feast!!
Thanks for looking and for the many kind comments!!!
