Here’s a small bit of an illustration from Gwango’s Lonesome Trail.

The illustration was inspired by the above photograph, taken in the summer of 2000. I found this strange skull in the hills of San Jacinto, Ca. It’s made of wood, and sits alongside a collection of other carved skeletons—a Raptor and Pterosaur. I did some research, trying to find the sculptor of the works, but had little success. The sculptures were destroyed the following summer in order to build a housing development. They’ll forever stay a mystery I guess.

Something from the dingy dark bowels of my sketchbook. I apologize if it’s a little moldy and musty looking, but this drawing is over a hundred and fifty years old! I drew it during my days as a Victorian naturalist working for the British Museum of Natural History.

Here’s some ruff concept work for a new book project I’ve started. I guarantee, the story is totally different from my other book, and has nothing to do with dinosaurs or any other kind of extinct primordial beast. It just happens to have a small and very minor role featuring a prehistoric Pterodactyl. That I promise.

Gwango is getting ready for the printer this week, so in celebration, I present a smorgasbord of random stuff. There’s a couple of ink drafts and some designee stuff I did for the title page. Bon Appetite!
