Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, but also discuss history, folklore and films and books. Hope you have a nice stay!

Acrylic on Illustration Board - 20" x 30"

This is only one of two contractual Illustration works that I'll be sharing.  This is a favorite of my for contextual reasons beyond his excellence in painting.  One of my favorite series of books of all time is The Dark Tower by Stephen King - and Whelan did all the internal illustrations for the original edition.

This image is important to the story - integral really, as this is where Roland meets Jake for the first time.  Their relationship is vital to the entire arc.  

I also just love the point of view here, looking out from where they just were.
