that's one big, smelly wave... by squidmafia that's one big, smelly wave... by squidmafia
Here's a two page spread for a book, possibly children's fantasy. Basically, this kid discovers his grandma's old witching book and other magical stuff in his grandpa's house, and things start to get all weirdly fantastical and it's all good and nerdy! Here's a scene in the story after two pesky faeries have persuaded him into exploring the sealed-off well near the house.

Folks, it was sealed for a reason!

The painting was done using colored pencil, watercolor, and white acrylic paint. The text was later added using Illustrator. I still don't feel finished with this (nothing is ever finished anyway, is it?) and am not totally happy with the text. I had to add that in a hurry thanks to my penchant for doing things at the last minute!
