After I posted Dave McKean’s sketch of my son, Kirby, a few folks wrote to ask how he’s doing. Well, these days he’s in his last semester at the New Hampshire Institute Of Art, majoring in illustration. In this age of computer art, Kirby is deeply focused on hand watercolor and, as you can see by this lovely example, is developing a rich, classical style. His goal is to marry his art skills to his love of fantasy writing. He sees himself as a world-builder and, after graduation, hopes to find a job that can make use of those talents. His senior thesis is an experiment in fantasy development called the Orrery Project. Check it out!
