I am pleased to share with you a few images from my upcoming book, The Adventure Book of Strong Women! I've been working on this project a little over a year, picking it up, setting it aside, tossing ideas aside, creating new ones: basically letting it percolate--as it is good to do with all projects. It's part coloring book with a mini comic inside and a loose story floating along the whole thing. It's going to be full of adventure (obviously) with a little humor and a lot of strong women!
I play a lot of RPG games like Pathfinder and Dungeons & Dragons along with enjoying video games like Skyrim and of course all manner of scifi and fantasy novels and, frequently, I am more than a little disappointed in how women are depicted. Usually for the male gaze and not for female consumption. I figured it was high time for me to contribute to a rising tide of artwork celebrating strong women. I hope you will like it as much as I do!
It's a bit more ambitious than my last two books and I've done a lot of work to find a publisher than can print on quality paper in an odd size (10" x 10"). But I know the results are going to be worth it!
I've got all of my finished concept drawings finished and now I am working on the finals. I plan on launching a Kickstarter to finance this project by the end of May. Check back here or on my Facebook page for more updates!
