Raúl Esparza drawing Nr. 81: Valentine Coverly from Arcadia.
I was simply STUNNED about the huge response I got after posting the sketch. 😄 People love Valentine and the red sweater and I do too, so it was time to “honor” him with a drawing. 💞❤️😘
The next one is another Barba, followed by Bobby.
“Listen, there are forty-one books in this series that’s been going since the 80′s, so it’s going to be a little daunting! Luckily there are at least forty-one approaches to the reading order, so you’ve got options! Just…don’t start with The Color of Magic, for god’s sake. I mean, theoretically, yes, you could read them in order but hell, who would want to? Start with Guards! Guards!, he’s got the hang of the thing by then. Personally, I read them using this chart!”
At which point they’ll pull out this lovingly made infographic that probably has sodding footnotes to boot, they’re so goshdarn helpful about it, when honestly, none of us really care which order you read them in, as long as you read them somehow.
Just…don’t judge the series by The Light Fantastic, wait to read that one after you’ve finished Soul Music or something and feel brave enough to go back. Seriously, the first few books aren’t BAD or anything, but they’re like comparing a sketch in Leonardo’s notebook to The Last Supper.

God the Jonas Nightingale look is so hot 🔥 Haven’t drawn him for quite a while. I think doing that mirror jacket scared me off a bit. 😄 That nearly killed me.
