I think I lost a lot of my normal readers on Monday due to the holiday, and that's wonderful. It's great for people to get away from this time consuming addiction. Apologies to all, but I think Bru's hard work on her interview with me was worth mentioning one last time for those who missed it.
Just to give you something of value here, I'll share one of my favorite Alan Lee works. I love this piece so much that I bought one of the prints. It's not much, but it shows his delicate beauty. Look at the subtle realism in the flow of the cloaks, the rocks, the water, the stonework of the bridge. It is exactly this style of work I would love for the cover of my book. I don't need to show readers what my characters look like (they can decide that better in their own imaginations); I prefer to show snapshots of the story in action, illustrating the stark beauty of the world. Alan Lee is my dream artist, though I'll never get him. Anyone out there able to mimic this style?
