I know you’re all busily enjoying The Manual of Aeronautics, but it’s the time for Fan Art Friday Fortnightly! And as a bonus, this FAFF is actually a fortnight after the last one. (Tiny w00t.)
And so we begin with this from Sandra G:
Somewhat larger w00t!
Thanks to you all for your comments and enthusiasm. It’s been really fun seeing the book out in the world.
Next, we have this pissed-off Leviathan by Nicole Marquez (AKA adventaim on DeviantArt).
I like it when the airbeast can haz all the feelings, even when the foremost feeling is hey-I’m-going-to-kick-yer-butt!
And speaking of emotions (masterful segue!) check out this lovely pencil work of a laughing Deryn from Lauren S:
I like how happy Deryn is in lots of fan art. It was really important for her to be a joyful person, given that Alek was depressed all the time. Of course, as the series progresses, the two of them switch places to some extent.
This piece by jurodo was part of Dalek Week, which we’ve already covered, but I missed it. And it rules! So here it is a few weeks late:
And here are two more Spore pieces from Oskar, a message lizard and a monoplane, because everyone likes message lizards, especially when they have big kawaii eyes that seem to say, “Please give me a message, I’d love to take your message somewhere!”
Nice monoplane too. The Spore stuff is all so friendly.
And finally, in honor of the Uglies quartet boxed set that just came out with the new covers . . .
. . . here’s a remix of all four covers by Hannah A:
Those are pretty cool. I wonder if a time will ever come when we all just put our own covers on books, because they’re either all print-on-demand or electronic or something. That would be cool.
Okay, that’s it. Hope you’re all having a good end of summer. It’s the first day of spring here in Sydney, because we do it all backwards and on the first instead of the 21st of the month! (Wait. You do your seasons backwards? And offset by 21 days? Isn’t that, like, one thing too many?)
