Pollen

Pollen, 2019, ink on paper, 12″ x 9″

Pollen is a new drawing (personal work) that I finished towards the end of January. It was done using .13 & .18 Rotring Rapidograph pens. The image below is a quick iPhone shot of a new work in progress called Hearts Divided. I’m hoping to get it done in the next few weeks, working on it between other things. The piece is 17″ x 14,” ink on archival quality illustration board.

On the writing front, I’m in the middle of a full revision of my latest novel The Tailor of Echoes. My goal is to have it completed by the end of March.

Dreamsick – New Silverpoint

Dreamsick, 2018, silverpoint, 5″ x 6″

My first blog post of 2019 is to show you one of the last drawings I did in 2018! Dreamsick is meant to convey that sense of disorientation that can sometimes follow you out of your dreams. Sometimes the feeling is a little sickening, but often it is a welcome change of perspective or perception.

This drawing is available for sale. Message me here, or through social media for details if you are interested. The piece is $500.00 CAN + $20.00 for shipping (Canada Post). Payment through Paypal. Image size is 5″ x 6″ with about .5″ of white border around the edge. It is drawn in silver on a white ground over acid free illustration board.

Happy New Year!

Russian Edition of Necessary Monsters

I can now show you the cover art for the Russian edition (Eksmo) of my novel Necessary Monsters. I really like the cover, it reminds me of George McDonald’s Lilith, which has a nice resonance for me. Quite a thrill to see this. Unfortunately, I don’t know the artist’s name yet, but I will update when I find out. The image below is the original edition (Arche Press), which features my art, a crop from my drawing Chimera.
