Recently a writing website was launched, called Beyondaries.  This e-zine (electronic magazine) site features authors and artists, giving tips and advice in each quarterly issue.  I am the head Illustration columnist for the site, and I wrote an article on my illustration process for Port Yonder Press‘ upcoming book, The Book of Sylvari: An Anthology of Elves.  The article will also appear in the book, along with all the other short stories and illustrations.

Please give it a read and drop me a line if you have any questions!
