An avid reader of the James SA Corey books, I wasn't quite sure to make of the Camina Drummer character when she was first introduced in the exciting science-fiction series "The Expanse." Initially, I found her character to be a bit flat and not quite as integrated into the familiar blend of characters I had become accustomed to. As the second season ended, I didn't pay the character much thought as I began thinking of which character I would select to kick off my "The Expanse" art series.
But then season three happened. Suddenly, this Drummer character took on a new life. Playing equal and opposite of David Strathairn (depending on which scene in which episode), Cara Gee portrayed the character of Camina Drummer with passion, strength and vulnerability that didn't come through in the previous season. I was hooked, and had to know more about this performer.
From there, I found the "Strange Empire" series, and watched the entire singular season in a week, all the while working on the idea for a new art original that, 70 hours of drawing later, would finally become the work you see on this page.
Entirely hand-drawn using technical pens and the highest quality black India ink, this is the first in my new art series planned for 2019.
A very limited one-time run of 20 prints is available for $34 each, numbered and hand-signed by the artist. There are only 20 and when they are gone, they are gone.

Meanwhile, as a Belter might say: Yam seng!
Technical pens were the mainstay of the designer and illustrator's craft before the development of computer graphics. Now, many art enthusiasts are rediscovering the technical pen because its handiwork stands out almost magically against the bland precision of computer rendered graphics. My work has always been produced with the best technical pens and durable India inks available.
