I'm writing a detective story set halfway between San Francisco and the internet. And the more people who reserve a copy, the better each one will be!

The evolution of an illustration

I'm not just writing the words for this book; I'm doing the illustrations, too. So I thought I'd give you a peek at my process—from idea to sketch to code (!) to finished image.

There are a lot of images involved (and a quick video, too) so I decided to post it all over at You can click the image above to get there... or click here!

Don't miss the mini-survey at the bottom of the post; I'm curious to know which version of the final illustration you prefer.
