A British author Barry Nugent had commissioned me a while back to create the cover to his self-published novel Fallen Heroes. It was my first-ever book cover design and thoroughly enjoyed working with Barry through the process. He was both gracious and patient in turning to me for the cover to the sequel, Forgotten Warriors.
Michael and I go way back to 2003, when he had originally pitched Chalk with me doing the art. The project did not find a publishing home at that time. After character design, a few sample pages & three covers, I had eventually moved on from the project. Since then Mike found a different penciler for the interior & pursued self-publishing. He plans to release the OGN this year & “brought the band back together” by asking me to do the covers.
If you “dig around” you should be able to find my original Chalk covers & pages. Good hunting!
