Fine Art Friday Week Fifteen

Amazon is going to launch a new publishing platform called Kindle Vella. The stories posted on there will be serialized shorts from 600 to 5,000 words per episode. My stories for Two Page Tuesdays won’t be eligible for the new platform as one of the rules is that you can’t post episodes freely available from another site. I don’t want to make people start paying for Shadow-Blessed. It started free, and that’s the way it’s gonna stay. Still, I’m excited to try out the Kindle Vella. If you’re up to all caught up on Shadow-Blessed, you may remember Storm Ryder, the actor who revealed his magic on camera. Before I knew it, I started thinking about stories revolving around him. Kindle Vella feels like a great opportunity to explore his character and the lighter side of magic. Moon Witch Taken, Moon Witch Lost, and Shadow-Blessed all explore higher-stake situations than I want to explore in this new series, Dramamancer. Long story short, I’ve designed the “cover” art for Dramamancer this week. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

Fine Art Friday Week Six

Hey Fans, Friends, and Fellows,

I’ve been going through all my old files on my computer a little at a time, trying to get my digital space organized alongside my physical space. In the process, I found some sample sketches for a webcomic I considered starting. I don’t even remember when I drew this. It was probably a long time ago, as I can’t think of the last time I saw this type of load screen when watching Netflix. I’ve always wanted to start a webcomic but have been intimidated by the idea that my art wouldn’t hold up to the standard I wanted. It was totally the wrong perspective. Instead, I should have been thinking about taking on that challenge and watching how my art skills would grow the longer I kept practicing. A part of me wonders where I’d be right now if I’d done that. The rest of me says screw regret. I’m gonna challenge myself now. I’ve got some planning to do.
