Rough Storyboards for John Dini, “Hunters in a Farmers World” author.

After the creation of these roughs for John Dini I was able to get to work doing a more final pencil drawing for each scene. See the YouTube video below. Storytelling with a pencil… story board images for author John Dini, and his book entitled “Hunters in a Farmers World”. These images were part of his author’s tour slide show presentation for his book.

Who is John Dini?

Hunting in a Farmers World, by John Dini which is not about hunting for wildlife, instead it is a business book, that you gotta check out, especially if you are an entrepreneur. I like the way he tells about how things work in business for the different personality types and how these personalities interact in a company. When you think about it, if you know what your intrinsic gifts and skills are, your decisions change as you start out on your new venture.

Pencil Sketch Progress

Here are some of the pencil drawings I am working on for John Dini. They are prehistoric era pencil sketches of a hunting village people and hunting. He isn’t using these drawings in his book. He is going to use them in his slide show presentation that he does on his book tour. I love being able to envision what a book tour would be like through clients like him.

I have not gone out on book tours myself, but when I finish my book on drawing in perspective that may change. Leading a much more reclusive artist existence, I share my desktop view, to give an idea of how I go about my work here in the studio. You can see that many references are close at hand and other already complete images are also close for my reference to help keep the style consistent throughout the project.

Pencil drawings for an author

Got a commission for pencil drawing work, sketches about a prehistoric tribe characters and wildlife. Creating illustrations to be used by the author on his initial book tour to help present ideas behind his book.

He based a lot of his thoughts while writing this book on prehistoric logic. These pencil drawings were made at his direction, for a slide show presentation of the prehistoric ideas as he presented his new book. He is a successful speaker, writer and coach doing many book tours and speaking engagements throughout his career. He was a joy to work with, his name is John Dini, and the book is entitled, “Hunting in a Farmers World”.

Pencil drawing is one of my favorite mediums.

Here are two of the sketches for the preliminary test to get the job. My pencil drawings are not published in his book but hopefully, they assisted in making his book successful.

You don’t always know where your art will end up. It is always a happy day, to be hired, for the working artist! Drawing is a great way to spend the day.
