Jane Austen vs. Kraken



Wow, it's been a hectic few months. Packing, moving, unpacking, settling, etc., but I'm back up and running now, and have been quite busy the last few weeks with various projects. This first piece is an illustration for an article in TimeOut New York, a weekly NYC entertainment magazine. You can check them out here. They wanted a picture of Jane Austen fighting a sea monster, for a feature about the recent Jane Austen Monster mashup books that are currently flooding the market.

It was awesome to get such a quirky assignment out of the blue, and I certainly look forward to working with them in the future.

This is a very cool piece. The gestures of the figures and your color choices are perfect for the subject matter.

Damn, they cutoff your favorite part. http://bit.ly/csrgoq You did this in two days? Great turnaround! Now just get them to link to your website in the illustration credits ;-)

Hey Nick! I guess the site is on a pretty strict template. They look pretty slick in print though!
