Within the last few days, I’ve begun the painstaking process of gathering images, thoughts, and so forth, and trying to put them all into a book format. Let me clarify: I am in the process of writing a novel (hopefully a series of them). This is no ordinary novel, however; I hope to make it a unique visual experience, something let’s say between The Art of Star Wars and Dinotopia, an epic story told in words and in pictures.
The images won’t all neccessarily be fully rendered, as I want to preserve a “fresh” quality, with sketches, storyboards, and concept illustrations throughout the book. This will be a long, complicated, and potentially-frustrating project, but it is one that I feel very passionate about. The road will be treacherous, but in the end I know it will pay off.
Wish me luck!
