On collaborating with artists

My first project is progressing despite some personal challenges which make the work more challenging than it otherwise would have been. I’ve collated the notes, passages, and drafts I’ve collected over the years and formed them into a somewhat cohesive plan. It is now time to flesh out the bones.

I’ve hired a wonderful artist, Arthur Corod, to help illustrate the cover as well as fifteen in-book images. You can see a small snippet of his talent in the entry above. I am truly blessed to have found him. He has a fantastic eye, an innovative vision, and loves to tell stories through his drawings. What’s more, though, he comes up with suggestions for the storyline. He has internalized the project, and believes in it. He’s providing suggestions on improving the story line, and even offering ideas to take it in new, totally exilerating directions.

These are the hallmarks of a strong team, one I am glad to be part of. It will be interesting to see where this adventure takes us.
