Eulogy is here!

Sat Aug 29, 2015, 11:17 AM


Those of you who have been following me know I have been working on illustrations for my daughter's first novel, Eulogy.  Well, it has finally been officially published and is available on Amazon in a paperback print edition (with my illustrations) for $16 and a Kindle edition (without the illustrations) for $5.  It's a very exciting achievement for her!  (for anyone, actually). 

It's an adventure/romance that takes place in a setting reminiscent of medieval France, about an orphaned girl who becomes trained as a mercenary.  The main character is a lesbian, and in addition to her adventures as a trained spy and warrior, the story deals with the emotional struggles she faces as an unconventional young woman.

You should buy it, read it, and review it!  There's also a face book page for it...go ahead and like it, and we would be grateful and consider you an extremely cool and progressive person :)

Here are the illustrations that are part of the book.

I am a software engineer who, after 30 years of focusing on marriage, kids, career, and other pursuits, has decided to try and resurrect the drawing skills that have languished since college. I started with digital art, but found that I spent too much time in front of the computer. So after much experimenting, I have returned to my favorite medium, traditional pen and ink.

Your gallery is awesome! Most of your landscapes looks like very precise woodcut prints. Great line work!

Thanks very much!  Yeah, engravings, etchings, and woodcuts are big inspirations for me.

You are welcome!  If you like my look and ever need reference photos, I would be honored to give some to you from my private collection.  I have thousands that are not posted on dA (that also fully show my face) - everything from classic nudes to highly erotic.  Please let me know your thoughts and keep up the great work!

Hey there Glenn,

I just dropped in to say: welcome to :iconblackartsociety: ! I really love your style!  It's delightfully classical, but your passion shows through and prevents it from being stodgy.  We're looking forward to seeing more of you.

Thanks for the welcome!  And I'm glad my work doesn't come across as stodgy..."classical" pen and ink (not graphic novel-type stuff) can tend to be a bit boring, but I love the style. The challenge is to inject some life into it.

And BTW, it's always nice to meet another Firefly fan :)  ...still my favorite TV show ever.
