Final Fan Art Friday

I’m on tour soon (my Appearances page will tell you where) so I won’t be able to post much until mid-October. So this is our last FAF for a while. *sniffs*

I’ve decided to end on a bang, with a set of Leviathan videos, but first let’s do some regular art.

First, from the world of dreams and clouds, this random assortment of air and water molecules decided to make Huxleys!

That really does look like Huxleys, which is a bit cool. (Photo by hpaich of flickr, tweeted at me by @ohhmyhead. They may be the same person. ON THE INTERNETS WHO CAN TELL?)

This just missed the CAKE cut-off, but ONE more piece of kissing fan art is entirely okay. It’s from Amy:

I love the blurry background, because it shows how the world fades into a blur when you’re kissing. (Unless it’s not-so-good kissing.)

I was a big doodler in my school days, because doodling’s a great way for your hands to show you what’s going on in your brain. It’s like dreaming on paper. So I was happy to get this Leviathan-themed page of scribbles from Ema:

So many gears!

And now a couple of whacked-out-Alek drawings. I see a lot of these on the internets, drawings where Alek looks a bit mad. Maybe it’s because he’s so reserved on the outside, but we know he’s all a-churn inside.

From Maria Luisa, a rather manic Alek plays cards with Deryn on the spine.

This equally manic, or just plain scary, Alek comes from Coffee-Bun:


Let us move away from the crazy and toward the cute. An excellent piece of cosplay came may way this week, complete with a living, breathing Bovril!

Hannah claims in her email that this chihuahua’s name is really Kip. But he does have eerily similar markings to a certain perspicacious beastie.

And a fancy-boots Dr. Barlow costume from Aurora Celeste:

It seems like Dr. Barlow cosplay is outpacing Deryn at the moment. And we don’t get much Alek or Count Volger at all. WHERE IS THE VOLGER LOVE? Don’t tell me it’s because cosplayers are mostly female because a) probably not true, and b) girls can stick on mustaches too!

And now a hilarious submission to FAF from Katie. It shows how a novel can invade your reality, making everything a potential reference to the fictional book-world inside your head. Even a soda can.

Hah! That happens to me too. I get hypersensitive to one word, or name, and it starts to pop up everywhere.

And to finish, here’s a quartet of Leviathan videos!

Let’s start with some Darwnist rock (from LScribeHarris, aka Lorelai Quinn):

You know, I never thought of Deryn and Alek as being a power-ballad tupe of couple. But they do fly through the clouds on top of a really big airship, which is pretty rock-worthy.

Here’s a more sedate book trailer from Erin in Queensland Australia:

From Spitballer09, a rather stylish cast pick video:

I feel like I’ve posted this fake movie trailer from Zozomagod before, but I can’t find where, and it’s pretty cool. So here it is (again?):

Of course, the youtubes are full of Leviathan trailers and videos. What are your favorites?

That’s it for this week. See you on tour.

Goliath comes out on Tuesday!

  1. SO EXCITED!!!! I love the videos!!! TUESDAY!!! I can’t believe its so close!!! SO EXCITED!!!! Can’t put it into words

  2. The kissing one- not only is the background blurry, it also looks a lot like the background on the Great Gatsby cover. Love it! Also, the deryn display is adorable.

  3. Oh, goodness. JJ Abrams would make the perfect Leviathan movie, I know it! As long as he didn’t pull one of those nasty lets-take-a-series-and-compress-it-to-two-hours ploys. Open casting for Alek and Deryn, please. 😉

  4. Tuesday. This weekend is going to go by so sloooooowly…. At least I have 20 million other books I have to read for school and study for a bunch of science and history tests. Yay me! XD

  5. I’d like to get Goliath on Tuesday, put I’ll probably have to wait until the weekend. I blame my Algebra 2 homework!

  6. Well, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, it has finally happened; Alek has really gone off the deep end this time. I honestly don’t think he’ll ever truly return to us. Let us contact the men in white coats, shall we?

  7. So excited for the book release! I’m not able to get to one of your tour locations, but I did purchase an autographed copy online via amazon.

    I read an article and came accross this German term that I wish I had discovered sooner! I’m sure Alek could have worked it into conversation somehow…

    “Backpfeifengesicht” …which translates directly to… “A face badly in need of a fist.” No kidding.


  8. maaaaan you did not get my email pic did you oh well thats ok sooooooo that was totalty awesome ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh alek killed his true love nooooooooooooo sob sob

  9. and booooooooo on the lilith crap booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  10. i will watch all of the movie-things! but first

    @scott-a word of caution
    because i am in love with your books (especially dalek) i have decided to do the impossible to achicive my goal of getting GOLIATH asap. because my parents are a bit short on moneies at the moment, i have been trying to scrounge for money from my sources. alas, i am broke-exept for my school lunch money (you can see where i am going). sooo, i have decided to go for two weeks without school lunch, which means pb+j and fruit snacks, versus spagetti, and apple sauce. in short, i have sacrificed my happiness boost at lunch, so that your book will give me extreeme joy.
    so if this book is any less than you said it would be,
    that is all.

  11. SCOTT!!!!! hello. I just have one question. I am trying to play the way deryn will tell akek she’s a girl scene over in my head, and I want to know how long deryns hair was before she chopped it off.

  12. The art is lovely, as usual.

    When I walked into the library today, I went over to the YA new book section, as usual. And what did I find waiting for me there but GOLIATH! Four days early!!! Made my week! I’ve since finished it, and all I can say is that the last picture in the book is a killer!

  13. It was on the shelf at the library! I asked a librarian about it, and she said that it didn’t have a shelf date so they could put it out when they were done processing it. Or something like that.

  14. Oh my bowler hats!!!!! I’m just about tried to run out the door when heard that it may be at the library!!! If only it wasn’t 10:30!!!!!!!!! I’m going to get that book ASAP!!!!!!!!SCREAMING

  15. Scott-la, I have a question regarding your appearances on tour: When you go to the Barnes & Noble in Round Rock, TX, on October 2nd, will we have to arrive early to recieve wristbands for a place in line? I’ve had this happen once before, and missed out on seeing Rick Riordan because of it (they ran out of wristbands). I really don’t want to miss out on you, too! Do you know anything about this?

  16. I need to find out what comes next! Will the loris play an important part in Goliath? Will Alek find out Deryn’s secret before she tells him? SO MANY QUESTIONS!!! I really want a loris!

  17. I like the video of Alek and Deryn. Phsyco Alek, not so much.

    You know what’s funny? Yesterday I posted a comment about how fan art friday haddent happened yet, and then an hour later I checked again and this was here! I didn’t get to read it because my comuter shut down on me.

  18. heeey, y’all who are hatin on the pycho alek drawings are just being a drag!

    pychopaths unite!!!!

  19. @Aurora Celeste-(or MMMcH?) Beautiful! Good thing I didn’t see your costume at D*C or I would have been so intimidated I would not have even entered!


    I’m the Deryn cosplay, so thanks for all the compliments. I feel pretty now (which is great because yesterday I felt super ugly). (Yay, teenager-ism.)

    Kippy is FAMOUS! Isn’t it weird how much he looks like Bovril???

  21. <333 TUESDAY. lol on that cast video, I have to disagree on some of them.
    Volger- Alan Rickman (like from Sense and Sensability)
    Barlow- Nicole Kidman (like from Peacemaker or Austrialia)
    Bauer and Hoffman's actors are NO-NOs for me. Lol if there was a film, u should have a cameo appearance like when their in Lienz or something. I do like Ewan McGregor as Deryn's dad though. <3333 LOVE THAT GUY.

  22. Three more days? Oh dear………
    Hopefully it won’t be sold out at B&N…..may have to get my paws on the new Amulet novel….and the new Margret Peterson Haddix….and the new Wolves of the Beyond book…WHY DO ALL GOOD BOOKS COME OUT AT THE SAME TIME?!?!

  23. Waaahhh TUESDAYYY!!! Waahhh im gunna get it on October waahhh meehhh okay then ….

    Anyways i love the pics and vids theyre amazing!!! O_o <3

  24. Omg!!!!! I just read a chunk of Goliath on amazon!!!!!! It’s a big spolier though, so I stoped reading after a while. IM GOIMG TO MY LIBRARY TODAY TO GET GOLIATH!!!! I hope it wil b there. Thanks for the tip Elizabeth-wa!!!

  25. The last video was the best!!!!!!!!

    I CAN’T WAITTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You see, I had wasnted to pre=order, but there is a two day wait. So I wanted to go to the store that day, (Walmart!) and buy it, but . . . in my town, we rarely get new books on the day they come out. So I’m buying it on my NOOK, then as soon as possible, I will buy the real book! That way, I cn read it the day it comes out, and have the book to look back on, since I have a hard time remembering my charger for my NOOK! xD

  26. Don’t feel bad: my local library has a really good YA section and they get loads of new books! As in there’s like half of one of those IKEA bookshelves full of new YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy.

  27. @selin OMG the amazon preview was so much I actually almost screamed and threw my laptop at the wall O.O art reveals are enough for me, thanks ^^;;;;;;;;;; *still breathing hard*

  28. Yaaaay! Today I ordered my copy of Goliath, it inly sucks because since I don’t live in the US, I have to wait for it to be shipped -.- it will be coming on the 24th…or that might be when they make the actual order o.O which will piss me off more. But I hope the saying “Good things come to those who wait” will stand.
