First of all, here are some of the artists Michael and I really loved and commissioned. I’m putting two here now, but there’s a few others who will be added later because I don’t want to link dump on you guys
Serena Guerra was probably my favorite, not only because her art was fabulous (to be honest, we have one pic from her… but I’m totally in love with it.) but also because her and the person who was at the table with her (and now I am horrified to realize I didn’t get his name) explained the process of creating a comic, an idea Michael and I have been developing for the bits of The Athele Series which won’t fit in the book proper, but we still really want to see the light of day. Check out her coloring on The Mice Templar.
The other Artist I was a total fan of, did several commissions for us (bless their hearts, these artists who put up with our gigantic list of characters…) was Grace Allison. It was pretty funny, Michael had mentioned he had a commission for someone. I walked past her booth and thought “Yes. That artist has a style I love.” and went to ask her about commissions. She said that she was open for it, though she did have another colored piece to do ahead of mine. As I glanced at the description of it, though, I found it was none other than Michael’s commission. Ha!
Finally, and possibly most exciting, I’ve got the youtube video for the Nanowrimo panel! It’s really fun and enjoyable, though it’s 30 minutes long. Still! Please feel free to share with all your friends who don’t know what Nano is, and even those who do!
