Lonelier then a Trucker on a Midnight Run…

Here’s a tiny piece from one of the new illustrations. It’s from a scene near the end of the story, when Gwango finally reaches the end of the lonely trail. He’s alone, he’s dejected-- he’s the loneliest prehistoric reptile this side of the Rio Grand!

I also wanted to announce the start of a fantastic new blog! The amazing work of Cal Arts Character Animation graduate Jesus Chambrot can be seen HERE!

Very nice.

I like the little bits of moss
on the powerlines- it really adds
to the mood. Looks like a great story.

Gwango's expression of desperation would put a tear in my eye if I were the crying type. But I'm not! (I hope things turn out alright for this poor dinosaur. I think I've got a little something in my eye...)

I love the feelings of loneliness that the color combos evoke.
You are a master!

Justin! Sheesh! This is my favorite of yours yet. You and Josh are starting to make me sick with your talents (and that's a good thing).

Mark said...

Really nice man...you've got one of those styles that people find really hard to pull off unless it comes naturally...


Nice! ;)

love this pink dinosaur. It feels like a sweet lost soul. Lovely style, colours, mood etc. Great!

Coming along very nicely. You have the sweetness for a kids book and (refreshingly) the skillz to make it look good.

Thanks for the comments guys! And a special thanks to Mr. William Wray. Your kind words mean a lot Sir.

OK, officially a fan now. Dinosaurs rock (I did a kids book a few years back that went gangbusters, DINOSAURS AFTER DARK) and any book that namechecks(ish) Gwangi is a winner in my eyes.

So where do I buy this artwork? ;-)
