Moebius: Arzach pencil drawing (1993)
(Source: Scott Eder)
I did a ton of illustrations for the recent middle-grade novel, Scare Scape, by Sam Fisher. It’s a really fun book that reminded me a lot of the stuff I would’ve been really into in late elementary school, like Goosebumps, Spooksville, etc. Lots of fun monsters. Doing the huge cover was a, shall we say, harrowing experience.
I think there are about twenty of these black and white drawings in the book, that accompany a little Monster-Manual-ish description. I really like working in black and white.
You can check the book out on Amazon.

Te finely detailed and flaring grip is carved of a single section of horn while the ferrule is elaborately worked in gold filigree. The blade of unusual perak form is continuously broadening to the tip and comes with superbly-modeled ferrule in the form of a lotus and dramatic pierced vine motifs inlaid in silver. It is presents in its black-lacquered wooden scabbard with gold floral embellishments.

“But I don’t want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness, I want sin.’
'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy.'
'All right then,' said the Savage defiantly, 'I'm claiming the right to be unhappy.'
'Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have syphilis and cancer; the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.
'I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.”
