Welcome to FAF(FF), my sorta-weekly series of fan art, farinaceous treats, and fun.
But before we start, next Tuesday (August 21) is when The Manual of Aeronautics comes out! On that day I’ll be doing one last art reveal. As per tradition, it will be the endpapers from the Manual, which I think you’ll find quite fabulous.
And now for FAF(FF)!
Let us begin with cake, because the world needs more cake.
This edible artistry comes from the tumblr feed of jaberwockyx, and was made for a school project. (It won first prize, obviously.)
I like that it has both a walker and a whale on it, which brings to mind the book’s tagline: “Do you oil your war machines, or eat them?”
Not to be outdone, Uglies fandom also has a cake this week:
And just in case you think this is a cake with the words “special” and “extra” randomly on it, i have proof of its Uglies-relatedness:
Thanks for sending me the pix, Bea-la!
And now some whale love from Catherine P.
Not cake, but very kawaii.
And here’s some cosplay (and photoshop-play) from both series. First Jennifer B being a Special . . .
And Lauren being Deryn:
Two pencil works from peanutbuttergoddess, of Lilit and Deryn:
I like their half-smiling expressions a lot.
And to round out the lurve triangle, here’s Alek as drawn by sleepy pilot:
He’s not smiling, but he means you no harm!
That’s it for FAFFFFF. See you Tuesday for the book birthday of The Manual of Aeronautics! I am excited to hear what you guys think of the many arts in it.
