During our vacation last week we were attending a writing workshop that my daughter is involved with, and I had the opportunity to listen to some wonderfully creative speakers. I also had the time to return to using my sketch book. It’s amazing how easy it is to allow life to become too busy and not allow yourself the time you need to just draw. It does not matter how good or bad the image is; it’s the process of allowing your self to wander. This sketch was made while listening to a lecture about Beowulf. I really enjoyed the process; I hope this will encourage you to pursue your creative self!

I just completed this image for a new book soon to be published. Last summer I created a piece of cover art for the author, but since that time a major revision has taken place.
This is the cover art that the author liked last summer. But that was last summer and according to the author everything has changed…yet I still like this for a cover.
This is the first version that I created last summer. My daughter, who is the author, has the final artistic say in picking the art…since it is her book. Let me know what you think.
If you are interested in the book and would like to purchase a copy follow this link: http://www.lulu.com/shop/vr-aisling/dream-captive/paperback/product-20179961.html
