October-tale

A Calendar of Tales project, my contribution. 

I was inspired by October tale, and took a break from work to draw on large canvas for a change. I don’t draw on large canvas as much as I should.

I really liked the October tale. Obviously I love stories about humans meeting mythical beings, in this case, a Djinn, but it is a nice short story about complexity of encounters and time. That is how I interpreted it.

My Entry in Neil Gaiman’s Calendar of Tales for BlackBerry. Before the stories were published, I was sure October would be my favorite. It’s my favorite month, after all. I was correct that it would be the best of the bunch for me, but reasons I did not see. I got a wonderful little love story, so making some art for this chapter was a no-brainer.

Hope you enjoy.

The paperback edition of THE GIRL WITH GHOST EYES, coming in October.
