Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

Hey Everyone!
My name is Andy and I'm super excited to start this lettering project!

I know I'm a little late in the game but hopefully I'm not the only one.
After careful consideration, I have finally selected a book:

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer (pronounced 'owen')

I have a feeling some people might say, "But that's a childrens book!"

And yes... you would be right. 

I almost didn't choose this one because of that fact. I thought about Harry Potter (obviously), Bram's Dracula, LOTR, and a few other titles that I have loved over the years. 

The truth is, this process of choosing my favorite book made me realize that all my favorite books, movies, and TV shows fell under the category of "Sci Fi & Fantasy".

I ALSO realized that while Artemis Fowl book 1 might be a kids book, it was the first novel I had read that introduced me to the fantasy genre, and which sparked a passion in me for years to come (even before I read HP!)

And THAT is why this book is so appropriate for me. It was the beginning of a whole new world of magic and science fiction.

Ok it's now Nov. 24, 2013 and I just finished re-reading this novel. So good! I've made notes and have made a list of concepts and visuals that I think would be worth developing:

On to the next step: sketching!
