It’s Friday and time for another FAF. This is the second of three FAFs dedicated to fan art given to me during the Goliath tour.
But the concluding tour-FAF will not be next week, because next week is CosPlay FAF! This is Halloween weekend, after all, so many of you will be dressing up. If your costumes are based on any of my books, please send them here! (Click the Contact button in the right panel, way down.)
And NOW . . . some fan art. My apologies that I don’t know/remember the names of the folks who handed these to me. Tour is a memory-melting experience.
These first three pieces were given to me in Kansas City, I think.
Yes, that appears to be a Twilight reference, plus there’s a bit of Full Metal Alchemist in there too.
Half Deryn, half Dylan! I’ve seen a few of these around the interwebs. Is it that you all want to see Deryn in a dress?
This was handed to me right before I went to the airport. THE AIRPORT, WHERE THEY LOVE IT WHEN YOU BRING IN STEAMPUNK GUNS. But it was made of plastic, so I’m not blogging from Gitmo.
This next one was done by the staff of the Wild Rumpus in St. Louis.
Wild Rumpus actually has a ferret named Ferdinand. And given Leviathan‘s hero’s father’s name, I demanded a bonding session with the beastie.
It turns out if you hold ferrets this way, they think you’re their mother and go to sleep. So Ferdinand is not dead, okay? Just resting. (Pining for the moors, maybe.)
This piece is from that very visit, and was one of those artsy kids who drew it while I talked, then gave it to me.
It’s very light here, but in person the lines were very beautiful and aerodynamic.
And finally, a bit of fanfic. Well, not fiction at all, really. More in the persuasive writing category. But you can see that this young wordsmith knows the value of repetition.
Okay, that’s it for this week. early next week I’ll give you guys a more formal tour report, with lots of numbers. It might be interesting. Or maybe not.
Don’t forget to send me your costume photos! And if you’re on FaceBook, you can also take a picture of yourself with one of my books and enter the Show Us Your Steampunk contest. Win the actual aviator caps and goggles from the cover photo shoot. Click here for details, or just to look at stuff.
