John Carter of Mars


Here is Julie working on the last stages of a painting based on ERB's John Carter, a private commission from a friend of ours. We are taking turns in our usual unplanned way, There is no "you do this and I do that". One of us just takes over when the other is ready to stop. At the end of the day the only important thing is to divide the working time as evenly as we can and to have lots of fun!
The drawing below is the preliminary sketch for two of the white apes in the right half of the painting.

Hey Boris and Julie, this is looking absolutely amazing! Like another classic in the making. The friend who commissioned it will no doubt be thrilled! I can't wait to see the finished piece. Thanks so much for giving all of us this "sneak peek".

Following your blog helps me to truly appreciate just how incredibly prolific you both are, and the intense dedication you have to your craft. It's inspiring and humbling to be sure!

I've been wondering for years (as have many people, I'm sure) how you divide the work on your collaborative paintings. It's so neat to have an answer! It sounds like a lovely organic process of creation. The finished piece is gorgeous too!

For me seeing this was light I mean, like reading a wonderful short story. Very satisfying and somehow illuminating. Thanks for sharing.
