pit was amazing

Anna Fang, badass aviator and agent of the Anti-Traction League from the Mortal Engines quartet by Philip Reeve. (one of my favourite book series of all time, and I’m really really excited to be drawing her for the upcoming volume of Ladies of Literature!)

I’ve been struggling so much with the composition for the actual piece, and just de-stressing by doing some character sketches…

Get to Know Your Author #23, if it's not been claimed, please?

#23 was “any obscure life experiences that you feel have helped your writing?”  To which I say…

All of them.

Life feeds art, and art feeds life, and neither of them can really exist without the other.  Which is not to say that all of you need to have my “sure, I will jump into the snake pit, SNAKE PITS ARE AMAZING” approach to life: sometimes, watching someone else jump into the snake pit will be more than enough.  But everything you do, everything you experience and see, will help your writing, because it is all a part of your writing.  It is all connected to your writing.

Verity Price exists because of Kate challenging me to find a way to get us access to rehearsals on So You Think You Can Dance, along with multiple other factors.  October Daye exists because I got stuck on the Tea Garden moon bridge and was staring at the koi to calm myself down.

Everything feeds everything else.


This guy’s Parks and Recreation acapella medley is absolutely amazing! WATCH HIM.


Throwback Thursday!

So, hey, do you guys remember when “Lapidot” looked like this…?  Because I sure do! ;P

It’s amazing to think how far we’ve come since the very early days - this is basically all we had back then.
