Pencils for the Grimwood cover

Who knew I'd made a copy of the pencils before I started painting this all those years ago?  I didn't, until I found this halftone stat the other day.


  1. Mr.Nowlan ,

    I just wanted to say that I am a huge fan of your work and am just elated that I found this blog. I am an new illustrator fresh out of school and I am learning more and more every time I come back to your work . thanks for the inspiration.

    Kind Regards,

    Raymond Bonilla

  2. Hi Raymond,

    I checked out your blog and was very impressed with the work I saw there. You're very talented! Thanks for the kind words.


  3. You know looking at the color in this piece reminded me of a cover you did some time ago.

    You've always seemed skilled at great composition and color theory.

    Makes me believe you're a robot. :\


  4. Friends have teased me about that Omicron cover for years. It was a benefit piece and had to be drawn very quickly. I'm not certain, but I think someone else colored it.

    It has quite a bit of violet in it and I sure colored a lot of things that way in the '80's.
