I do a lot of rough sketches for the book, both on paper and digitally. Oftentimes, the sketches are merely a way to organize and balance imagery with text. Other times, I try to examine a composition or explore an idea. As with all things, some ideas seem fantastic, only to find that they just don’t work in reality.
I’ve been very excited about Tarzan lately, and started sketching ideas for a possible splash page. Here is one of the rough concepts, although I doubt this particular idea will pan out. Regardless, it is fun and evocative, and I enjoyed working on it.
Tarzan is cool.
