Kubla Khan Book Paintings

Well, I’ve passed the 50% mark on this project — all the sketches (other than the cover) for the book pages are complete… Now I need to go over them all and get them perfect… I think I’ll pick a wall and set them all up at once so I can do it more quickly. Below is how they’ll fit together. They’ll still look quite a bit different from this iteration, which is a little “shallow”.


  1. Wow… those colours.

    No, I’m not too worried about plagiarism. As you may have noticed, I put up PDFs of all my book projects, and usually post source code to projects as well.

    The more people who are inspired by what I do, the better. It’s very flattering to have people feel motivated to create by the things you’ve created yourself… The greatest compliment, as they say!
