> I'm currently working the next Fables trade paperback wraparound cover. This is the sketch blown up and printed out, the sections taped together. I transferred the image onto a sheet of grey Rives BFK with blue transfer paper.

> My "drafting table" consists of a piece of MDF board propped on a paint box. A french easel holds up another piece of MDF board with the sketch taped onto it so I can refer to it while working on the final drawing.

> I inked the drawing and gave it 3 or 4 coats of acrylic gloss medium. I left the faces in blue pencil since I anticipate the edges there being softer than the rest of the composition. Now it's ready for paint this weekend . . . more updates after Labor Day!
