Between demanding deadlines for book covers and movies, Bob has managed to squeeze in time to illustrate two books of experimental artwork about dragons. Dragonhenge (2002) and The Stardragons (2005) allowed Bob to stretch his talents in a range of mediums and also to indulge in exercising his beloved pencil work. Both are narrated dragon-myth original stories conceived and written by the award winning author John Grant.
