I have had interesting news about my work in progress this week, but it’s all super secret. It’s pretty cool, though, and you will all hear it about one day.
One day soon? MAYBE. Maybe one day somewhat less soon. But one day. I PROMISE.
Let me just say that things they are a-brewin’.
In the meantime, it’s time for FAF! Let’s do this.
We begin with some cool 3-D projects. First is a Clanker lamp from Kirsten. Here it is, both in its raw form and with the shade on:
Like I’ve often said, one of my favorite things to come out of Keith’s illustrations is the sense they give of Clanker and Darwinist physical culture. Not just machines and beasties, but simple things like desks and lamps. So thanks to Kirsten for following that vision.
And here’s Haley’s cool Leviathan-wing ring:
The wing wasn’t entirely Keith’s creation. It was something that the designer of the hardback cover of Levaithan, Sammy Yuen, put together from pieces of Keith’s art.
Speaking of wings, here’s Kaitlyn’s cool shot of Deryn using her body-kite outfit:
Nice. Love the color scheme, and the fact that it makes Deryn look a bit like the shot of Lilit from Behemoth.
And here’s another one from Kaitlyn with that always favorite theme: hangin’ on the ratlines:
And from Patricia, a blow-up of A CERTAIN CREATURE WEARING A CERTAIN COMEDY COSTUME PIECE. SEE IF YOU CAN GUESS BEFORE LOOKING.
Okay. I think you were right:
And finally some Uglies action, a cityscape of New Pretty Town from Trenton:
What I love about this is that it calls to mind the classic Saul Steinberg image of how New Yorkers see the world:
Well, played, Trenton!
Thanks to everyone for a stimulating FAF.
