I don’t even have just one “son” anymore. Now it’s more like “a medium sized army of jilted, underappreciated grown ass men that I need to wrap in blankets and shield from the world.”


Shades of Magic by V.E. Schwab - The Four Londons

“You don’t know anything about these worlds,” he said, but the fight was bleeding out of his voice.
“Sure I do,” countered Lila cheerfully. “There’s Dull London, Kell London, Creepy London, and Dead London,” she recited, ticking them off on her fingers. “See? I’m a fast learner.”

Just a bit from one of my fav books of the moment, A darker shade of magic (book 1). I’m trying some new stuff, decided to do this one with a more stylised approach. Always thought ADSOM would make a great animated series 


  • Holland: I am a very bad person. I am a very very bad person. I am a horrible person.
  • Lila:
  • Rhy:
  • Ojka:
  • Alucard:
  • Kell:
  • Holland: "No you're not Holland, we still love you Holland."

Kell Maresh from @veschwab ’s A Darker Shade of Magic. I finally drew a dude who’s hair isn’t dark, about time! Also yes, I’ll be doing Delilah Bard too because she’s just too awesome.

adsom appreciation week: favorite relationship | kell and rhy

“What foolish thing have you done, my brother?”

Kell looked down at the rich red lines on the bed and pulled aside his collar to show the mirroring scar. “I did what you would have done, if you were me.”

Rhy frowned. “I love you, Kell, but I had no interest in matching tattoos.”

Kell smiled sadly. “You were dying, Rhy. I saved your life.”

He couldn’t being himself to tell Rhy the whole truth: that the stone hadn’t only saved his life but had restored it.

“How?” demanded the prince. “At what cost.”

“One I paid,” said Kell. “And would pay again.”


Kell returned the drink to Lila’s hand and then frowned as he noticed Alucard. His brother pointedly ignored the captain’s presence and poured himself a very large glass. “What are we drinking to?” “The living,” said Rhy. “The dead,” said Alucard and Lila at the same time. “We’re being thorough,” added Rhy.
