More linework from Jack

I've just finished pen and ink drawing on Jack in the Beanstalk (or rather "Jack to Mame no Ki" to give the book it's correct Japanese title).

Before I plunge into the heady world of colour and start building up layers of watercolour, here are some more scans of the artwork at the black-and-white stage.

The perspective, detail, and pattern in the images are really cool.

fantastic, hopefully you don`t take this the wrong way, but your..energy(?) in your work reminds me of the artwork of Rick Griffin.

Good stuff, John. I love your confidence around Depth. Especially like the labyrinthine interior of castle. Personally i hardly ever ventured beyond the black and white stage, so I shall follow your colour stages with interest!

Me parece una obra fabulosa y debo felicitarte porque cada detalle cada minúscula sombra se nota que esta con pasión es un trabajo magnifico.
