You’re probably asking yourself, “Chandra did this?” Indeed I did, my skeptical chummy friends! (or, yay, you finally posted this!) I did this illustration for promotion of a book that I’m not only contributing illustrations to, but also that I am art directing! What is this book you ask that promotes the greatest of the sharks? FRENZY! That’s what! It’s an illustrated prose novel (not to be confused with a graphic novel which has a comic book pages) and it takes place in the 1970’s. Chronicling 3 Great White Sharks and the people that pose a threat to our sharky friends! Here’s the lowdown!A new illustrated novel of oceanic terror written by author Andrew E.C. Gaska about one of the world’s most beloved animals… sharks! In the early 1970s, off the North Eastern seaboard of the United States, an army amasses. This army doesn’t use guns, or bombs, or even knives. Instead its’ weapons are speed, stealth, size, and rows of flesh-tearing teeth. They gather each year at the same location to eat and mate, then break up again to traverse the oceans until the next cycle. This army poses no danger to those who stay out of its way. They make no organized attacks, lead no incursions into new territories… That is, unless they have leaders. Now, they have three. As a group or researchers, wealthy teenagers, and Vietnam veterans make their way up the coast, the army of great white sharks gather to feed on seals. The sharks, however, soon find themselves besieged by ruthless predators. As the sharks attempt to flee, three of their kind; bigger, deadlier, and more cunning than the rest, rise to the occasion, whipping this pack of great whites into a feeding… FRENZY!
