"An inordinate fondness for bears"

A variety pack with one bear of each species. Polar, brown, black, spectacled, sloth, sun, moon, and panda.

Their names are Barret, Qin, Matahari, Asabiarn, Ukuku, Gibbous, Panser and Torpor (not in order, but you could figure out who is who by their names).

The Deathbird. I was inspired by the poetic short story by Harlan Ellison. I painted in Procreate, comp in Photoshop, a bit of Maya for 3D.

"The Deathbird closed its wings over the Earth until at last, at the end, there was only the great bird crouched over the dead cinder. Then the Deathbird raised its head to the star-filled sky and repeated the sigh of loss the Earth had felt at the end." - Harlan Ellison

"Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow!"

This pangram (a sentence using every letter of the alphabet) is so much more bad-ass than the stupid "quick brown fox" that I had to illustrate it. A tribute to master Jean Giraud (aka Moebius).

Another fantasy map I made, of Mono Lake, with a more classic, Tolkien-esque style. I have an entire photo book on Mono Lake fully laid out and ready, but never got to publish it: with the pandemic and shipping problems it was just not the right time. I need to get back on it at some point, but it's so much work to get that part done, and I'm so busy with my novels currently.

What better for my first Mastodon post than the map of Noss, the world my fantasy novels take place in? I'm still in the process of writing the books, and sending it to agents, so you won't find it in shelves yet. It's an adult high fantasy story with LGBTQ+ themes, set in a world of my own making.
