Pen & Ink for Songs of Dying Earth


I'm rushing around today (as I have been all week) but I wanted to put up a quick new post. This is one of 19 pen & inks I did for "Songs of Dying Earth" an anthology of stories written around a world, a far future earth, created by Jack Vance. The book is sure to sell out.

Golly, that's lovely inkwork there!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend at IlluxCon (I assume you did go? My schedule did not allow another cross-country trip) - and I hope you share how it all went!

Your inks are getting better and better with each one you create, Tom! It looks like instantaneous work! They're classic and modern at the same time ...wonderful range of tones and superbly vigorous in the line-y energy. I couldn't say what living artist handles inks as well.

Beautiful ink work Tom! Reminds me of some of the great ink work done by Wrightson, but with a flair all your own. Now you are inspiring me to bust out some ink and delve into a medium I have far too long neglected. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent. As a fan of Vance and of yours I must have this book. Same for StoneFather. Nice cover on that one.

Thanks all. It's been a tough couple of weeks dealing with STUFF! Why do I have so much stuff to deal with? Stuff always takes up tons of time.

Hey, I got more illustrations to do for this book today. I thought I was done. The never-ending job.

Illuxcon went well. My next post will be about it. I need to post Stonefather here too with some close-ups. Subterranean sent me a box of copies to me so it's definitely out now.

Wow, unbelievably well done pen and ink. It's a dying art, and it's nice to see there's still a few guys that could have given Cole a run for his money.

a incredible art with a awesome message, the concept of the artis in this case is the last earth message to us, the lost children of this planet, we can't reconigze to our mother, we destroy it.
