“A stunning black-and-white graphic novel adaptation of Walter Dean Myers’s Michael L. Printz Award winner and New York Times bestseller Monster, adapted by Guy Sims and illustrated by Dawud Anyabwile.
Monster is a multi-award-winning, provocative coming-of-age story about Steve Harmon, a teenager awaiting trial for a murder and robbery. As Steve acclimates to juvenile detention and goes to trial, he envisions the ordeal as a movie. Monster was the first-ever Michael L. Printz Award recipient, an ALA Best Book, a Coretta Scott King Honor selection, and a National Book Award finalist.”

At a speed equivalent to the exponential compounding rate of Moore’s Law, we rage into the dystopian future of artist Josan Gonzalez. In this not-so-distant reality, silicon and steel intermingle with human flesh and a race of hybrid beings strive to survive amongst the remnants of our ravaged planet. Channeling artistic legends like Moebius, Gonzalez’s work promises to carry on the journey and take us deeper into uncharted territory.

Please click HERE to head over to the Biniwood Patreon Page!
I’ve recently started a Biniwood Patreon page to bring this project to life, and allow me to work full time on creating the Biniwood stories in comic form!
The characters are fully developed, the world is rich and full of life, and everything is all ready to go!…Except for the fact that I can’t dedicate much time to it at the moment due to having to work very long hours trying to make a living as a plush maker. How wonderful life would be (and infinitely less stressful, and painful) if I could make Biniwood full time instead, which is where you come in <3
I would really love and appreciate it if you could mosey on over and take a look at the page, and if you fancy following the development and creation of this fun and wonderful comic, perhaps even consider become a Patron! Even just reblogging this would help tremendously, and would be greatly appreciated.
Here’s a quick list of the kinds of things I’m sharing on my Patreon page, just as a small example of some of the things you’ll get to see as a Patron:
Development sketches and concept art
Step-by-step images and written tutorials of how I create my paintings
Timelapse videos showing how I paint and create my comic pages and illustrations using watercolour, gouache and pencil
Timelapse videos of how I create my digital art
Regular uploads of voice-over walkthrough tutorials for certain techniques such as how I draw and paint trees, rocks, buildings (all that fun environmental building stuff), and all of my characters and creations
Full voice-over practical tutorials on choosing papers, types and brands of paints and materials, and how to use programmes and machinery such as the Silhouette Cameo die cutter and Silhouette Studio.
Please see the pictures below for a fun little glimpse of the kind of things you’ll be able to see:
Please, please reblog <3 Pretty please with cherries on top <3
It helps an artist out so unbelievably much, even if you can’t become a Patron or haven’t got time to visit (or even if it doesn’t interest you!), please just consider clicking the little ‘Reblog’ button. I can’t express how grateful I am to every single person who does!
Focusing on the early formative years of the lives of children, artist Thomas Rouzière explores the tumultuous experiences instrumental in their mental, physical and sexual development. The expressive quality of the raw paint and line Rouzière captures the balance between confusion and wonder of this period.
