Commission – The Zoey Jane Files: Statecraft Affair, cover

zoeyjanefiles_cover05_wm

Another commission for “The Zoey Jane Files” by H.M. Barone – this time, for the cover of the final book in the series!!

I am blessed to call her a friend and to have taken this journey with her. Zoey’s story is so intense and beautiful, and explores a world so different from what I personally write and draw. Getting to illustrate her story has definitely widened my own experience and worldview, and made my life and my work all the richer for it. And seeing someone I care about reach this goal, a whole series finished (!!!), is SO inspiring.

Congratulations, Heather. Thank you for letting me into Zoey’s world.

Check out the full series here! “The Statecraft Affair” drops this Friday!

Mermay catchup will be up as soon as I have time to gather the posts, but in the meantime, here’s something extra special for this week’s Gnomish devotional.

I was commissioned recently to do some border artwork for this year’s Salem NY Faerie Festival‘s flier!

(Also look, just below the Gnome to the right – that’s me!)

Thanks very much to Robyn at Faerydale for thinking of me for this work, and to everyone who helped out to make this commission a reality. And if you’re in that area of New York State, please come visit and enjoy a day of Faerie whimsy!

Commission – “Maarten the Gnome meets Tock the Gnome at Faerie Festival!”

maartenmeetstock_wm

Drawn for a dear friend and inspired by our own meeting at New York Faerie Fest last year!

This was honestly SO fun to do. In addition to trying to get the details of each of our characters right (of course), I tried to incorporate the feeling of the festival itself, with little nods to different parts of the festival grounds – and little peeks of other faerie folk enjoying the space! Between that, the stark linework and the banner at the bottom, I hoped to evoke the feeling of old storybook illustrations.

More on Tock available here, and more on Maarten hopefully soon! He has many stories planned, and I can’t wait to see where he goes with them.
