Fanart: The Life and Times of Angel Evans

My friend Todd Hollow did this gorgeous fanart of Angel and Yumiko, which I thought I would share with you. I love it! Not quite how I pictured either of them, and yet absolutely them as well. This absolutely made my week! Big thanks to Todd for letting me share this; you can find more of his art here.Angel Evans and Yumiko by Todd Hollow

Tantamount Delay

Hello! Due to unavoidable life-stuff, Tales From Tantamount is going to be late this month. I should still be able to get you an installment later this week. In the meantime, please enjoy this artistic interpretation of the Carrion; it is of course not entirely accurate, as anyone who has actually seen the Carrion is in no fit state to do art afterwards…

Tales From Tantamount Carrion

Carrion will occur between nighmares and waking, every other Thursday.

The Life and Times of Angel Evans: Behind the Scenes

Hello, and welcome!

I’ve not had a lot of time this month, so rather than a neatly planned out post, I’m simply going to give you a few of the drawings I did of Angel while I was writing. Hopefully, back with a full feature next month.

Illustration of Angel Evans, talking to a smoke demon

This first one is a moment right at the beginning of the story – Angel Evans chatting with a being made of smoke. I really like how this one came out, especially Smoke-Face. Perhaps one day I’ll even give my sketches settings.

And this one is from a moment at the end of the story, when we get a glimpse of Angel Evans as a child on the day she ran away from home. I almost never think about what my characters are wearing, so sometimes when I draw them there’s just this moment of “Oh damn, what clothes would they wear?” I like the movement in this one – it’s always challenging and fun to try to draw things in action. I was also really trying to make her look actually like a child with child proportions, rather than a mini-adult. I think I managed.

And that’s it this month – back soon with more book reviews.

Re-blog from Nimue Brown

Fantastic blog piece from Nimue Brown – I really enjoyed this post, so many layers to it.

Advice for heroines There comes a point, usually rather late in the story, where saving the man from the patriarchy may look like a job with your name on it. At this point, the odds are he’ll be blaming a woman and not the system for what’s happened to him. It is his mother’s fault […]

The Grand Return, plus sketchdump

Hello! Today was going to be my day of coming back after being ill, chatting about the upcoming reviews and books I’ve been reading and stuff I’ve been writing and books that I’m looking forward to reading.

Instead, everything is insane. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/blog/live/2017/apr/18/corbyn-cressida-dick-met-police-a-gun-may-not-have-saved-pc-killed-in-westminster-terror-attack-says-new-met-chief-politics-live

So, I give to you this sketchdump of foolish fantasy stuff that I did while hanging out at my friends’ house being not-quite-ill anymore. Enjoy it, have a giggle, don’t take it too seriously. Maybe it will cheer you up a bit. Click on the images to view them big. The normal reviewing stuff will be back shortly.

Artwork for ‘The Life and Times of Angel Evans’

So, you may have noticed from my repeated posting on this blog that I have been published! Apart from the total excitement of having my work picked up by the lovely BookSmugglers (who are fantastic to work with) and being paid for writing, one of the truly wonderful things about this was seeing Jenna Whyte’s fantastic cover art for The Life and Times of Angel Evans. In fact, I was so in love with it that I bought the original, and had it framed. This is me, having just got the original back after getting it framed, feeling very pleased indeed. Big shoutout to Jenna, who is a fantastic artist and who really captured the essence of Angel Evans – find out more about the artist here.

If you want to buy The Life and Times of Angel Evans, you can do that by clicking on the icon to the right. It’s about £1.50. If you can’t afford that, it is available for free on the BookSmugglers website.

Note: I just realised I am wearing the same jumper in these photos that I was wearing when I met Ana and Thea – what a coincidence!
