The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

I'm a huge fan of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and have finally finished the painting I've been working on inspired by Lisbeth Salander, the main character.  Done with FW ink and watercolor pencil on hot press watercolor paper.  

Children's Book Pages

Gee, it's been a while since I've posted my children's book art!  This is what I've been working on lately.  A few spot illustrations, some full pages, all done with FW ink and watercolor.  Only a few pages to go!  Excited to start laying everything out and seeing how it all comes together.
