Concepts! Concepts! Concepts!!!
See? I have been busy! Here's some concept sketches to some upcoming covers I am doing. Top: The Dinosaurs of Mars-cover to a great Caitlin Kiernan book. The idea was to make an almost 1950's view of dinosaurs-you'll have to read the story to get the context, 2nd down: Dragon Done It-combine hard boiled detective mysteries and, magic in a book edited by Mike Resnick and Eric Flint and this is what you get! 3rd& 4th down, two Heinlein books I am doing. All these will eventually become covers, all the sketches were approved on the first shot-which means it's my best idea and thus, they'll be good pieces. I visualize things in my mind, and "see" the compositions and sketch them down with charcoal....it's a nice spontanious way to work.
