ANOTHER JIM STROUD


is in the works! and this is the BLACK AND WHITE COVER.
the color cover will be released with the book.

one more pencil pic..


SO many sketches and work, but, these are nice and i'm able to show these.... hehe

THis si nothing "new" but i DO like this subject matter quite a bit.
"boy VS giant Robot", because of the high contrasts it may present: human vs machine; small vs big; incense vs knowledge; agility versus force; etc..
I've done drawing like this before, and there's TON of others out there...
Hope you enjoy.

AND the elements got some color





on again, these were also done pretty small and just as a way of relaxing and enjoying a day of coloring.
it ended up being a full day, after all, but a lot got done.

AND in pencil...


they were drawn quite small.
the positive side of drawing them THAT small was how uncommitted i was to the exercise and just did it as a fun activity for the day, with not much to worry about.

the four seasons of a year around...




tiny sketches for...



the fun of just doind a collection

the skies from the hillside



Maybeshewill is a band i listen to quite often and this is a sketch based on their single and closing track from "the skies from the hillside", from their most recent album "i was here for a moment, then i was gone."
the album is the most celestial album i've ever listened to and tho it took a few guesses and moments of doubt as i was listening... i was grasped and moved so deeply that it makes me wanna listen to it again.
i dont wanna compare it to "not want for trying", first off, because "Not want..." is very dear to me and i know that if i compare then, it would make my opinion bias... SO, on its own... as a record, as an album... It is magnificent and i highly recommend it.
