Old Moab :: Playboy Fiction

tomer :: writer Ron Carlson creates a devastating moment at the end of Old Moab, a short story published in Playboy a few months back. the protagonist, in a chance meeting with a man at a personal threshold, becomes a witness and a facilitator. there was no way to use the final act in the drawing so i was left with an attempt at foreshadowing an event that has yet to take place.

  1. This piece is really brilliantly composed and lit, and the narrative is just rock-solid. Really beautiful work, one of my favorites.

  2. I love looking at your work. You really nailed the foreboding effect you were going for; I think the dog's shadow has a lot to do with it.

  3. i've been following your blog for quite a while now. wow, i love your work so much. big compliment!
    i prefer the sketches to the final artwork though. but i think, that's what every illustrator get's told, and clients are unlikely to share that opinion too, i guess :P

  5. I've been hanging out to see the steps behind this one because it's so compositionally simple and beautiful that I can't stop looking at it! The clouds are so cinematic and the furls in the clothing awesome, especially the foreground protagonist's collar. Also love the light being cast across the second character's face, shadowed by the fingers of the hand. great stuff.
