Tides of Hope :: Art for Charity


Hello!

Sorry for the short break between posts there. I have been off on an adventure, but I'm back for the moment. I'll be at Supanova in Brisbane 1-3 April 2011 and Melbourne 8 - 10 April 2011. Hope to see you guys there!

Here is a piece which I finished recently. I was asked if I wanted to contribute to a book which would help out a little for the victims of the recent floods in QLD, Australia. More info about the book can be found HERE. While I worked on this I couldn't help but reflect on all the crazy natural disasters which are happening around our globe. So while this piece will hopefully help out the people of Queensland specifically, my thoughts also go out to all our friends in New Zealand and also Japan.

The piece I worked on was written by Chris Claremont. It was a really fun and interesting challenge. I did my best to remain faithful to Mr. Claremonts script while also injecting my own flavour and design sense in there.

I think the original will be available for auction also with all funds going to charity. Please do check out the book if you make it out to the Supanova conventions.

For the art heads: I took a couple of snaps of the piece as I worked on it, so here is a little look at the work in progress/ behind the scenes. Combo of traditional with digital.

Thanks for looking!

Jon.
