This was done by request from my dear friend Ken.  He said he" wanted a dragon in a rock landscape that was about to eat the animal of my choice".


The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber

Continuing on with my British Safari fascination, I decided to go with a scene from one of Ernest Hemingway's most famous short stories.  I read The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber a long time ago and it has always stuck with me.  It was first published in 1936.

 The past couple weeks flew by while I was working on promotion material.  Slowly, I have also been working on a large graphite drawing, but until that's finished - a little floral print that I did for some of my promotional packaging.


Promotional Goodies

My promotional material is ready for take off (I hope it helps me get somewhere).  I'm very happy with the way everything turned out- portfolio book from Blurb, postcards from overnight prints,  and hand letter pressed business cards from this wonderful lady.
