The above image (click to see it larger) comes from my best friend and one of my favorite illustrators: Josh Montreuil. Last Christmas my wife commissioned him to draw the cast of “The Stars Were Right” as a surprise gift for me and he did a fantastic job. Wouldn’t you agree?
As writer I love seeing the different ways people interpret these characters. I posted this piece before, and as I said last year there’s a lot going on that I really like: Wal’s tattoos, to Samantha’s robes, Josh’s take on Wensem, and even the details in the world around the cast: from the open sewer to the strange writing on the storefront window.
Josh Montreuil is available for commissions, check out more of his work at his blog.
I really want this to become a weekly series. So I plan on starting to highlight art from “The Stars Were Right” fans and readers and sharing it with all of you! If you have any submissions please email them to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: “Stars Art Highlight.” Include any links to a website showing your work so I can share that as well and let me know if people can buy your piece/prints/etc.
The art work is wonderful, and of course your idea of involving readers and fans is wonderful as well. I’m so glad I started following your blog!
Thanks! Josh did a *fantastic* job. I know a few other readers are working on art projects as well. I can’t wait to see what they create.
That is SO cool. I love Peter Black sitting there looking intriguing in his wheelchair!
Isn’t it? There’s so many details. I love it.
