Graphic Artist - 2nd Drafts Reviewed

Just met with Ryan Lord, the graphic artist I'm working with to create insert drawings for book 1 of my series, The 7th Journey. For now, we've found that perhaps 9 insert drawings, plus cover art is the way to go. The book itself is broken into 3 sections or parts, with 7 chapters in each part. Each part will have 3 drawings... so far.

I'm really excited at the artwork we've come up with as a first draft, and after having reviewed the 2nd draft today, I'm really excited for what's to come. There's a definite evolution as we progress with the artwork, and I'm really happy with it.

I'll be posting the next round of artwork on my portal site, just as I have with the first drafts. The new artwork should be up shortly. I believe the artwork adds to the project in a real way, and will definitely help move this work to the next level as I progress towards representation.

A Course In Miracles - In Depth

Along with my current work of finding representation for Book 1 of my series, and my other projects, I have begun some further personal growth work with a colleague of mine. This work focuses around "A course in Miracles" texts and the lessons and exercises associated.

Although there are 365 lessons, meant to be taken once per day - we have decided to take a deeper approach and extend the length of the lessons to 1 week each. We've calculated that the entire breadth of work would take a total of 7 years. The advantages of taking this in-depth approach is meant to help both myself and my co-writer Aaron to master the subject matter, as opposed to be a student of the material.

Please feel free to view our blog which documents our progress, thoughts, and experiences to date. Enjoy.
