(Indiginous Timbre) Book & Paintings

I am really excited to get to work on a book for children, with my high-school friend Christine.
Here are a few pics of the cover/art ideas. The book with carry a tribal story and theme. I am hopeful that our two families can meet and "break bread" thru the process -on a late winter trip to OH/PA. I will keep progress posted here of this promising winter project.

There are 2 versions of the same painting (which I often do to "keep it real", and one detail shot.) There is spraypaint layers on top of the ptg. that is sitting on a beach chair. It is a final layering that I am doing to add more layers fast. I use stencils and stuff to get some patterns and unexpected stuff happening. Gold and blue spray used here.

It's IT, what is I.T.?
Thanks, CM

Hey Chris, looks like you're off to a nice start! I look forward to seeing more. BTW, there are couple of landscapes in your portfolio that I'm drooling over! Nice work.
