Making Waves… Calling on the Rain

I recently wrote a story that has been picked up by Running Press. In the story there are both waves and rain; thought they might be tricky things to create in a miniature theater.  So, I did some tests using mylar and a long exposure. I am really happy with the results. I made some of the rain images into a tryptic for Koen. It is here on etsy though for you too: http://www.etsy.com/listing/92681540/tryptic-little-by-little-the-distance

      1. The Silent World Below the Sea — beautiful! Reminds me of Ireland. 🙂

        I keep trying to decide which one to get for my little Liam, and with all of your new artwork, it makes it that much harder to decide.

        Congrats on the book! I would love to read about your process sometime. Does it help to have illustrated for other published works?
