I’ve mentioned before how nice it is when someone takes away a drawing and brings it back as something shiny. Well, yesterday, when I was expecting an electrician to carry a sheet of melamine back through the open front door, Sue of Tiny Owl Workshop walked in, bearing treasure!
Back in 2014, I illustrated a cover for Greer Gilman‘s wonderful Ben Jonson novella Exit, Pursued by a Bear for Small Beer Press:
(Gilman’s 2009 Cloud & Ashes was my very first book cover.)
And Sue made the bear!
Look at his little face! His nose! His paws!
I love it so much. I keep stroking the bridge of its nose.

And this will be coming out later this year from Tiny Owl Workshop: Angela Slatter‘s Flight, with illustrations by me!
More details as they emerge.
Flight, the illustrated story I am working on with Angela Slatter (words by her, pictures by me) is scheduled to be published by Tiny Owl Workshop in February 2016.
Here are some more glimpses of the art on postcards and coasters Sue of Tiny Owl has put together for us to take to World Fantasy.
Working on Flight! In so many senses. It’s drawing very near…
A little gif of the development of a detail of Flight, the book I am illustrating for Angela Slatter, from Tiny Owl Workshop.
The eternally delightful Tiny Owl Workshop‘s latest project has been the Krampus Krackers, available at select bookstore cafes in Australia and the UK.
In Australia, these lovely, letterpressed crackers are illustrated by Terry Whidbourne (the logo) and Creative Emporium, contain stories of the Krampus, accompanied by further illustrations, one of which is mine.
It is a pencil drawing with digital colour.
You can see a larger version of the image by clicking on it to go through to its Flickr page, but here are some extreme close-ups.
This is a sneak-peek of some details of my illustration for Tiny Owl Workshop‘s Christmas Krampus Crackers project, now open to flash fiction (max 500 word) submissions from Australian and UK authors. Submissions close on 5 September 2014.
