Troy

I’m currently working on illustrations for Troy and the Trojan War (Charlesbridge, 2011). It’s wonderful to have a chance to re-acquaint myself with Greek vase painting; I had forgotten, a bit, what wonderful artists they were. However, it makes me feel a bit inadequate.

I also just re-read Mary Renault’s The King Must Die and The Bull From the Sea to soak up a little inspiration. The Cretan section of The King Must Die is like a fabulous, rip-roaring YA novel. Fun stuff.
