I've got an exciting new project in house. There's a new e-book publishing company in Memphis, and they're reissuing classic crime fiction. They've enlisted me to illustrate their initial set of books, and I'm having a ball. I've been wanting to do more illustration. I love reading a book and figuring out which images would be the most powerful to represent.
Here are a couple from my first book for them. They're pen and ink drawings based on the book Cropper's Cabin by Jim Thompson.
