Painting again!


The Book of Giants Kickstarter campaign has ended successfully. We are putting the finishing touch on the book cover, and are adding some binding and material upgrades to make the deluxe edition extra special. The book will go to the printer very soon.  With the ending of this demanding project, the quiet and structure returns to my usual working routine, which enables me to focus on my painting commissions again. I have been missing my paints and brushes for the past few months.

Here is a detail from the painting titled Snow White, which I did about 5 years ago.

One Fantastic Week show



I was a special guest on a weekly web show “One Fantastic Week”. Pete Mohrbacher and Sam Flegal were my hosts, and we talked for an hour about art, my book on giants, mythology, and a few other related subject matters.
