Dodos and Dirigibles



These sketches are for upcoming chapter novels I have recently be signed onto. These stories are beyond cool, and I am not just saying that. I could not have written a story myself that includes all of the things I love: birds (dodos!), atlases, explorers, sketchbooks, compasses, dirigibles, Bedouin, post World War One era... But I am not going to show you too much, I don't want to spoil the surprise.

I got home late last night and saw these and swooned. They are amazing!

I love how much vulnerability you've managed to capture in Nate, just through body language and perspective. Very, very skillful!

And the dodo! So very dodo like! LOVE him.

I am in awe...
