Missing on Superstition Mountain

Hi there,
I'm more than happy to share with you some of the art I did for Missing on Superstition Mountain, a new mystery adventure novel by New York Times bestselling author Elise Broach published by Henry Holt Books for Young Readers. Just a month after its publication the book was chose Best Book of the Year So Far by Amazon.com.
With this job I created not just the cover art but some interior art as well. I love B/W illustration. I did a lot of pencil and ink drawings for comics in the past so every time I have the chance to do interior B/W art I feel lucky. Besides, it gives me the opportunity to further develop the characters, environments and situations I'm portraying in the cover. I used graphite pencils complemented with some digital gray shades and textures. It was a very fun ride, the book has charming characters portrayed with a great sense of humor in a magnificent setting: the Superstition Mountains in Arizona which I hope I will know in person one day.

que buenos trabajos, los de B/N son lo mejor

Gracias Henry, me gustan mucho estos proyectos con ilustraciones interiores en B/N, es algo que viene conmigo desde los tiempos en que hacía historieta, aunque aquellos eran trabajos mas en tinta que en lápiz, que en este momento me gusta mucho mas que las tintas.

El lapiz siempre tendra ese encanto que no lo superara ninguna otra tecnica, aunque tus paginas de historietas eran muy buenas puedo decir que fue de lo primero que vi que me logro motivar para dibujar
