Storybook Dalek

Storybook Dalek

This instalment of the Dalek Game is for Fables Vol 3: Storybook Lovewhich, just – I love. I admire the concept and execution of Fables generally, and beyond that I frequently adore (or loathe, or both!) the characters, and those two things aren’t always sides of the same coin. But of course, this also means this drawing is for The Princess Bride, and therefore also for Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid and for Mark Knopfler, and all good things. And for initial capitals in fairytale books, with which I filled far too many pages of old sketchbooks.

In other news: All I’ve been able to manage about the World Fantasy Award ballot (after many tweets of congratulations) is “meep!”

And just today, Ticonderoga Publications announced Midnight and Moonshine , a collection of intertwined stories – cold and cruelly beautiful – by awesome fellow-present-and-past nominees Lisa Hannett and Angela Slatter. And I did the cover :)

  1. Much congrats on the award nomination. You are in great company and it is well deserved. I was very excited to see your name on the list when John Picacio put it up on his Facebook the other day.

    Love this one. I’d like to read the story that started “Once Upon a Time” and involved a dalek and the Tardis. :)
