Fun With Art…

Want this as your Screen Saver?

Celebrating a new cast of characters… and the return of some of the old…

Meet Lyci’Ah (Smuggler/Unfortunate Protagonist) & Marlan (Rogue Spell Weaver/Blood Hound)

I love imagination. It’s the root of creation and development, as well as an outlet for feelings and theories. Sure, it’s as fleeting and unreal as everything else about life, yet I am cursed to explore it just the same.

So, inspired by my current WIP (Work in Progress, or in simple terms, ‘the book I am writing at the moment’ 😉), I have recently taken to mess about with ink art and abstract forms to create images or pictures of my characters and their feelings/abilities.

It’s kinda a new element for me to play about with, but my choice is no accident. I have always loved the beauty of this type of art. Not only is it ecstatically pleasing, interesting and unique (which draws me like a moth to a flame🤭), but since my current WIP happens to be inspired by Chinese fantasy (Read, ‘a bit of a humble ode to a genre which I bloody adore’!), I felt the need to create a surrounding vibe to compliment my choice of worldbuilding.  Sure, as a ‘Westerner’, I may not have any kind of business dabbling in that kind of worldbuilding for my book, nevertheless… well, sorry, not sorry – the voices made me do it, lol… 😋😘

Anyway, back to the art… and the competition. 

Creating visual items like this is essentially also a fun way for me to introduce readers to my characters, whilst on a personal level, I get to explore deeper aspects and discover new sides to my characters’ personalities that I didn’t recognise or pay attention to when considering them with words alone. To celebrate that I am now officially in the editing stage of book 1 of 2, I am giving away one digital copy of this 100% genuine picture made my yours’ truly. Just drop me a line with the name of your all-time favorite fantasy character, and I will pop it it the draw.
