Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters!

The good folks at Quirk books are coming up with another monster mash-Up book this September; Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. It was a dream project to work on all the interior illustrations. The beautiful cover art was created by Lars Leetaru.

This was a very rewarding project due to the fact that I was able to illustrate such a wide variety of cool miscellany: sea monsters, underwater sea bases, giant pirates, gynormous lobsters, and intricate underwater diving suits! It was pretty much the reason I became an illustrator!

Thankfully I can show two illustrations from the book, which comes out September 15. Many praises must be given to Doogie Horner and Jason Rekulak for having faith in me to get the work done. They gave me good direction and were enthusiastic about the artwork I showed them throughout the months it took to complete the title.

Wow! I think the bottom one is some of your best illustration work. The way the people are arranged on the right hand side, the expression on the the pistol dude's face. Very cool.

Dear Eugene

I'm Hanne Duys, a student Film - and theatre sciences in Antwerp, Belgium.
I have to analyze the interior illustrations you've made in "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters". So I was browsing you're blog and bumped into Sushi-face. So I have some questions about that: where did you get the inspiration for Sushi-Face and is it connected to your work in the novel? Thanks anyway!

Greetings
Hanne

Those tales are pretty creepy but people actually believe in that even though a lot people don't see it.
