The Sea Dragon!
As I work on the illustrations of the Keeper of the Stars, I must tell you about my friend Phil Bolz and what he's been working on. Over a tough semester, Phil and I talked about his goal of making CG models and coming up with props to use. I talked about this Anna Project and how if only I didn't have to build the ship in the story, I would totally make this into an animated short. Long story short, Phil is building me a ship! I went back to the drawing board and redesigned the ship to be like a seahorse. As I spent more time with a young friend of mine named Shaurya, the ship was named inspired by his love of lizards and one of my favorite sea creatures, the Sea Dragon. I gave Phil my concept art and he has been spending his summer building a ship that is destined for adventure.
You can see more of Phil's modeling on his tumblr page, but know I keep him pretty busy with this ship of mine!
You'll get to see the ship fully rendered and in action this December at the Keeper of the Stars Art Hop on December 7th at the Public Media Network!
