Recruiting poster I created at work for our Apprentice Program. I started at Reel FX as a concept art apprentice in 2008, and it was quite the learning experience. Three years later, and I'm still happily working in Texas.
And, a bit of a Breadcrumbs round up-
I posted the cover to Breadcrumbs (written by Anne Ursu) previously, but since some interiors have been showing up in reviews around the internet, I'm excited to share a few of those as well.
But she was not alone. There was a palace just ahead, sitting in the middle of the plain like a gift. It was simple— a small square with a dome framed by four minarets. It looked like it had been sculpted out of snow.

For the snow was not snow anymore, but a woman—tall and lithe like a sketch, in a white fur cape and a white shimmering gown that looked so thin it would melt if you touched it. Hair like spun crystal framed cream-colored skin.

And now, back to work. Hope all are well.
Breadcrumbs is a middle grade novel by Anne Ursu, published by HarperCollins and Walden Pond Press, and illustrated by Yours Truly. The writing in this book is just beautiful, and I know 10 year old me would have absolutely loved it. Really, the illustrations for this one were a complete pleasure to work on, and I was lucky to work with Jordan Brown and Carla Weise at Harper who just pushed me to up the emotional ante on every piece. This book comes out in September.
Breadcrumbs is already getting some buzz round the internets, so here's just a few posts if you're inclined to see more illustrations and hear more about the story-
