Some new arts to share! Because The Future Fire, feminist magazine of speculative fiction, is finally back from hiatus! I provided these two illustrations for the story Elm by Jamie Killen, which is a poignant love story about a girl and a dryad and making difficult choices. My images are a tiny bit spoiler-y seen together, but not too. Go read it anyway!
In other news, have you heard about Turning Art, the monthly subscription service for wall art? Well, I have a profile there! Just in case it’s something that seems like your cup of tea. I mean, new art every month! Supporting individual artists! Buying things easily! What’s not to like?
There’s also my (recently refreshed) etsy shop, if you want just my art in particular. Or you could request a commission. I like those. ;)
An illustration I very recently completed has gone live on AEScifi.ca, The Canadian Science Fiction Review, so now I can share!
What. No men here.
I was extremely flattered when the editor sent me this story, telling me that he felt my style suited it. It’s strange and poignant and grotesque, all the qualities I love best in one place.
So check it out, and read the entire issue while you’re over there!
The thumbnail sketches from the project are after the cut, for the curious.
So Crossed Genres is an excellent SFF literary magazine for which I have illustrated (or co-illustrated) covers twice before. Recently, they asked me to do the cover of their first ever Quarterly publication. They’re going from a monthly paper release schedule to one where new issues are released free online monthly, but a print issue comes out only four times a year (with extra content and new cover art).
It’s now officially on sale to the public, so I’m sure no qualms would be had if I posted the cover art here.
Illustration is 11 x 17″, graphite and digital color. It’s based on the story “Love in the Atacama or The Poetry of Fleas” by Angela Rega.
I very much encourage you to visit the website to poke about the free content, and consider buying the book. CG’s a great publication.
