The pencil-drawn outline for the cover of 'Inner Expanses'. 

The first hand drawn piece that I have made in literally years. Probably close to a decade.

I'm much more used to digital art and photo manipulation, but I think that it came out well.

The current cover of 'Inner Expanses', but without the text. You can see more of Cortex's sinister form, similar to the original cover (above).

I like the vibe this gives off. A sinister yellow eye peering at you from the abyss.

Kind of has a Lovecraftian feel, which was the intent.

Beholder of the dark.

This is the very first figure in my "Of the Sky, Of the Sea, and Of the Stones" series. 

I depicts a metaphor in a literal manner. For scholars in this story, when one question is answered, two more often appear. This gave rise to a saying, that refers to this notion as a "metaphysical hydra".

The second figure in my newsletter series (Of the Sky, Of the Sea, and Of the Stones).

This one shows a cheeky wood troll who is guarding a door. This odd organism inhabits the island of Agalloch, where there are many like it who seem very fond of the isle's architecture.
