In experimenting with my own artwork for my fiction stories, I’ve found that using simple geometrics is a good place to start.

In the artwork above, I used geometric figures over stenciled horses to complement one of my novelettes, Triple Crown Run by Smarty E. Jones, which will appear later in another of my blogs.

I enjoy using colored pencils, markers, and color, or gel, ink pens, as well as black and white drawings for my projects.

Below is another piece of handcrafted artwork which I created for “Factory Tails“, which can be read in chapters here.

Creating my own artwork is something I like to do. It enhances my own enjoyment of the writing project at hand, and creating it is a relax mode for me as I roam the woods of wordsmithing.

About bahelberg1

Since I first touched a pencil to paper, I've been writing. Where that passion has taken me as I lived life is explored in my Primary blog, "My Writing Life Xposed". I love animals, including race horses, about whom I have written much, and I've always had a dog in my life. Shouldn't animals have their say? In my Second Primary blog, "Horses and Animals Are Talkin", I give them a chance to speak. In the Composite blog "Near the Finish Line", I explore my life's journey and observations. Other interests -- poetry, sports, photography, thankfulness, story ideas, self-publishing, story art, fiction, and more -- get their due in my other (17) blogs. I'm from a rural community in Ohio, lived nine years in Vermont, then returned to my native Henry County in 1980. I've worked for various local newspapers and attended classes in writing over the years before retiring to free-lancing in 2008. It was after my migration back to Ohio that I began BAT Publishing in earnest. It is strictly a self-publishing enterprise in that I publish my own works -- novels, novelettes, short stories with my Roughcraft Art -- in my own softcover, or loose-leaf notebook, designs. My photos and artwork are also incorporated in the books. Prior to this endeavor, I produced a periodic story booklet for young writers only entitled "Connections". Its success sparked my interest in self-publishing my own titles.
