Wow your art should totally have been in the book this is amazing and your Barakkas is SO much more like I imagined him, so much better than the stupid cartoon thing they put on the book cover...

It's based on a book called Nightmare Academy.
It's pretty much a HP alter-ego.

What's with the "monster and children" pairing? ^^
Seems a recurring theme in your artworks

Great work again

The design stared with the Authors vision and description of the creature. A crab was one of them.

Did you base that creature's design off a crab by any chance?
It still looks cool and all, I was just wondering.

Yes, very possible :)
Sorry...just a bit gobsmacked hat you actually answered one of these, and that i was mine, I fully appreaciate your timeschedule smacked together with your family life (working full-time and havein two children under the age of 4 of my own) I fully understood your sentiment when you said in your journal that you didn't have time to post replies like this.
Let me just say that I am in awe of your work, and even though I don't like all I see (I rarely do from individual artists, some things just don't look nice to me..I'm picky ;) ) I just get a kick out of he massive amount of detail you can put into your work, seemingly so effortless.

Got a bunch of Gnomon DVD's as a wedding gift when I married on the 21st of July, unfortunately none of yours was in there, but they are on my wishlist together with Puddnheads second one right now.
Thank you for posting your work here.

Thats a great compliment, who knows maybe the director will ask me. For now though it was an honor to work with my friend Dean who has a great imagination and story telling ability.

trust me we tried but it's intended for kids and well my style is rather dark they thought. Dean Lorey the author and myself had alot of conversations on the designs in the end though these are neither for the Book cover interior or the film it is the authors vision of his world.

What's that kid doing? Is he trying to convince the horrible monster that his mother may be a horrible pus spewing sin against god, but that there is beauty inside of him? That's adorable.
