The Gray King

I did this for my Senior Illustration Studio 1 class. The assignment was to do our dream project. Something we've always wanted to do. So I chose to illustrate something from Susan Cooper's The Gray King. This is at the end of the book when Will is starting to wake the sleepers. The swans come out before the sleepers.

This is done with Gouache.


I finished the illustrations for a short story that is going to be published in BYU's science fiction journal Leading Edge. The story is about killer mermaids who live in a spring that is the source of water for some orange groves. Every eclipse the orange farmers lure divers into the spring to be killed, which makes their trees really healthy and stuff. It's pretty cool. Also creepy.
