Alien Dude Progress

 I recently completed my dummy book for "Alien Dude Makes Space Pizza", Alien dude's first official adventure. The dummy is a rough version of what I envision the finished book looking like. All of the art in the dummy is done in rough pencil. The text is placed in the book in a very basic manner. The goal of the dummy is to show prospective publishers the story and characters and the overall potential of the idea.

The color image above is a quick sketch I did to test some illustration techniques. I like the way that this drawing turned out and I plan to use a similar, though more refined, style to complete some finished full color illustration samples featuring Alien Dude. I will include reproductions of the full color illustrations with my dummy book submission to publishers. I want publishers to see me as both a writer and an illustrator, someone capable of both conceiving of a story and bringing it to a finished stage visually.

This is the pencil art I used for the cover of the dummy book.

I'll be sending submissions to roughly twenty editors in hopes that someone may be interested in publishing the book. Wish me luck!!

Thanks for visiting!
