Werewolves of New Idria - graphic novel illustration by book artist Duncan Long

I’ve now finished over 80 B&W illustrations for the upcoming graphic novel Werewolves of New Idria to be released by Moonstone Books next year. Also in the mix are several cover proposals, a poster (that may become the cover), and the concept artwork leading up to the graphic novel (which was written by John Chadwell).

Getting my part of the project finished is a relief, of course. But I’m also feeling a tad “out of it” since I’ve been doing the book artwork off and on for nearly a year, and it seems strange not to be plotting out the next picture in the story.

So now I’m itching to start another graphic novel – perhaps of a science fiction story I’ve had kicking around in my head for several years now. And there are already hints of a sequel to Werewolves of New Idria. One way or another I’m hoping I’ll soon be working frantically to get another graphic novel illustrated. (And loving the work once again.)

In the meantime, you can see some preview pictures from the upcoming graphic novel as well as some of the covers and concept art at my Werewolves of New Idria gallery.
