Here's the cover to Secrets of Shakespeare's Grave!

This novel hits stores on September 11th. One of the best middle-grade novels I've ever read. The 35 interior pen & inks I did for it were a total joy. HMH hired another artist to do the cover and it's absolutely perfect for the story.

I draw past the time that the ink has drained from the nib so that I can rub parts of the paper with just a residue of ink--for a softer effect.

Here is a full-page pencil remarque recently done for a collector. For full-page images like this, email me at because you won't find this offered on my Etsy site.
