THE TORTOISE.

New print available in two sizes, a signed and numbered 9” x 12” giclee, or an 18” x 24” signed unnumbered giclee. I suggest the big one because there’s a LOT going on here. I’ll be tweaking the image slightly before print, but it’ll only get better. Preorders ship the week of September 15th after I get back from SPX, where this will debut. Get on it quick!

sibylla-surana:

Foul and corrupt are they
Who have taken His gift
And turned it against His children.
They shall be named Maleficar, accursed ones.
They shall find no rest in this world
Or beyond.

Since needlesslycryptic has graciously painted Sib for me several times now she wanted to try something different for this portrait. So I asked her how she felt about blood magic :3 More specifically, I asked her to illustrate the first time Sib turned to blood magic. Holy WOW Sib looks frightening and fantastic!! It’s quite chilling to see my adorable little elf’s dark side. Nastia definitely captured the desperation as well as the determination that compelled Sib down this forbidden path.

Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women for the money. And it made her miserable.

As a young writer, Alcott concentrated on lurid pulp stories of revenge, murder, and adultery–“blood and thunder” literature, as she called i–and enjoyed writing very much. She was in her mid 30s when an editor suggested she try writing a book for girls. Alcott wasn’t very interested, but her father was a complete moron with money and had left the family in terrible financial trouble. Alcott wrote Little Women in hopes of some decent sales and a little breathing room and got way more than she asked for. The money in sequels was too good to turn down (and her father didn’t get any smarter with a dime), but Alcott hated writing what she called “moral pap for the young” and longed to return to the smut and violence of her early endeavors.
