The Pilgrim's Progress

Temporarily, my War of the Worlds cross-section/cutaway project is on hold for a few months as I begin work on a project that has me extremely excited to be working on.  I will be returning to my digital stained-glass style/approach similar to that of the mural I did for Christ Church- but with a more matured use of the stained-glass look.
I am helping create art for a book that will accompany the upcoming album based on The Pilgrim's Progress (originally by John Bunyan- it is an allegorical tale of one man's journey of faith, trials and the venture to the 'Celetial City'), composed and sung by the very talented musician, Nate Currin.  Check out his music, it is amazing stuff!  I've had the opportunity to preview the upcoming album to produce the illustrations, and it is one of the best albums I have heard for this year.  Above is a sketch for the first song.  Later, I'll give a preview of the stained glass and cleaned-up linework.  I'll announce when the album and the art-book are released.  Stay tuned, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
