There are no illustration updates this week. I have just returned from a week in New York, and therefore have nothing new to post. While in the big apple, I saw an exhibit of Tim Burton artwork at MOMA (which was quite inspiring) and had a couple meetings with the editor on this Frankenstein project, Jordan Brown. A soon approaching blog post will cover this meeting more in depth. Now that I have returned home, I will be cracking the whip so I will have more art to show you next week.

I have now completed a third of the pages for the first volume of Frankenstein. That is approximately 24 pages I have illustrated thus far. There are three volumes to the book and I have estimated approximately 200 illustrated pages needed to tell the story in the style that I have chosen. That means I have completed one eighth of the book. Hell, is that overwhelming.
Here is the page of the week. In this scene, Victor receives a letter from his father informing him that his little brother has been murdered. His friend Clerval asks what he will do. Victor responds "To go instantly to Geneva" to see his family and home.

Here's another page to tease you with. Every week, I will choose one page to post up on this blog that carries something relative to say about it. I felt this page would make a good candidate because it exposes some of the strange elements (like the mechanical horses) of this fairy tale world I am developing.
More to come.
