Jak Phoenix – by Matt Williams

But, as we all know, life often gets in the way of these ‘big dreams.’ In the spirit of space operas of old, comes a light hearted, action packed novel following the exploits of the best low quality pirate in the galaxy, Jak Phoenix.

Wandering Koala rides The Phantom Coach TPB – by Jeff Thomason

New Jak Phoenix Character Sketches from Jeff Thomason


Jeff Thomason was good enough to make another series of character sketches, this time adding his touch to Baxter, Cyan and Murdock. Here is a posting he put on his blog:

———————————————–

So Matt, the creater of Jak Phoenix, liked the drawings I did so much, he wanted more. And I was glad to draw more. I’ve been interested in this kind of space opera style scifi for a while and have wanted to do something in this style, but I never had a good reason for it. Until now.

The characters were again drawn with a brush dipped in Sumi ink on Strathmore Drawing Paper (the yellow cover), then scanned into my iMac on a Canoscan printer, and digitally colored in Corel Painter X. I really liked the end result. This may be the process I use for all my art for a while.

The original article can be found here.

Awesome work Jeff!

New Jak Phoenix Cover Art!


Jak Phoenix - An independent space opera sci fi adventure novel by Matt WilliamsDue to artist Jeff Thomason’s awesome character sketches, the Jak Phoenix novel cover is going through a few changes.

Changes

  1. Great Jeff Thomason art in the top corner.
  2. My name is now Matt D. Williams, a huge change from Matt Williams. I’ve decided to start using my middle initial (stands for David) in my work to avoid confusion with other authors named Matt Williams. Not that big a change, but enough to isolate my books from other similarly named authors.
  3. I’ve finally added a review snippet at the bottom from Feathered Quill Book Reviews.

It will take weeks for this change to spread out to all the retailers and I will be changing the printed book cover in the near future. I’ll let you know when I do.

Thanks for your support!
