The Dreamland Chronicles

When my friend Scott Sava asked me whether I would do the cover illustration for an issue of his all ages comic book, The Dreamland Chronicles, I happily agreed. Finishing it took a lot longer than expected though, and I do hope Scott didn't cause his editor too much frustration with all the delays.

A very interesting aspect of the story is that Daniel -- the twin brother of the book's protagonist, Alexander -- cannot visit Dreamland, unlike most children. I wanted to capture Alex telling him all about the wonder of his nightly adventures. The focus of the picture is of course the iconic character designs of adult Alexander and the elven princess Nastajia.

If you are interested in purchasing this variant cover, look for The Dreamland Chronicles #5 by IDW Publishing to be released on November 26, 2008.

Your illustrations as always leave me simply stunned and amazed. I wish I had an ounce of your talent when it comes to the paintbrush, digital or otherwise.

Great work. I feel you captured Alexander's excitement and Daniel's disappointment. Just an amazing work.

Hey, I remember these characters! There was a very small preview for this comic in one of the books we picked up on Free Comic Book Day a few years ago! You've done a really great job with them in this picture.

I... wow.

I've always been a big fan of 3D Dreamland, but your version is really, really impressive. It's just as real in that your shading and lighting is really great! And you just about captured almost the entirety of it in just one picture. I am DEFINITELY going to be buying the copy with this cover!
