The fairytale project is still going, though I'm taking my time developing the characters and experimenting with some new medium techniques with backgrounds. There's a truly excellent book called "We Are the Ship" by a man named Kadir Nelson. The book is about the Negro Leagues in baseball and the illustrations are humbling. They make me want to do what I do better. So, inspired by Kadir Nelson, I'm attempting to produce something I can be proud of, even years from now. The following sketches are all preliminary character concepts.
