Weekly Update on A Fury of Angels and a Zentangle Dragon

Hello, fiends. Hope Easter finds your basket full of eggs and your bunny hopping merrily. The only egg I have for your basket is this: I am done with the first draft of A Fury of Angels and halfway through the second draft! Whoo hoo! I have my fingers crossed for an April publish date on the final book in the trilogy. It still needs to go through a total of four drafts and an edit, and that is a lot of work, but I am shooting for the stars here. I ask you, my kindly and faithful fans, to send me happy waves and good luck cheers. Perhaps if we all join together and ask the universe very nicely, she/it/he will deliver the finished book by the end of April!

Just for my little bit of random, I drew a zentangle sea dragon this week while thinking about writing. There is so much stuff to plan, from marketing to cover design, and this little dragon helped me through it all-him and my ever patient husband. Hope you enjoy! (The image uploaded kind of small so please click on to enlarge. The scales are really detailed and you cannot really see unless  he is enlarged, thanks!)

Zentangle Unicorn

Hello, fiends! As always, Monday is bringing you fans of dark fantasy a bit of weird, a bite of random, dashed with a little strange sauce.

And today's random weirdness is...drumroll, please...a zentangle unicorn.

I hear the hue and cry raised. WHAT! yell my fans of "The Last Savior Trilogy." Why aren't you writing?! You promised the book would be done in spring! I demand justice! Off with her head!

Relax, guys, relax. Let us keep my humble author head on my shoulders. It is still early spring, after all. Drawing is a part of my writing. People always ask 'how do you write? What is your process?' They think I am going to say I pray to the moon, light four candles to earth, wind, fire, and water, rub my unicorn's hoof for good luck, then dip my quill in ink drawn from a monk's sacred ashes.

Alas, writing is a great deal less mystical than that. I usually start my writing process by doodling. I draw something like the unicorn below and fill it with doodles, commonly called 'zentangle' designs. While I am doodling, I ask myself questions about the book and write a great deal in my head. So that is why I am sharing this unicorn with you! While it may seem silly and random, drawing and thinking about my writing go hand in hand. Some writers sit in front of the computer and just start writing, but that has never worked for me.

So there you go. This is how I start writing. By doodling unicorns and chugging coffee. Mysticism dispelled.

And of course, what everyone really wants to know. How is A Fury of Angels doing? You done yet? I get variations of that email all the time and let me assure you I am writing every day. I am so excited to finish the trilogy so that we all know the fate of Hades, Earth, and of course, our heroine Abira. Well, back to writing!

I found an interesting knights in shining armor graphic from the 1860's. The shield with the lion on it is really interesting. Hope you enjoy!

Red Chinese Dragon and Black Chinese Dragon Art

It is the year of the dragon, so I drew a red Chinese dragon and a black Chinese dragon.  I have always loved drawing dragons and I have always especially loved these dragons because they are benevolent and kind whereas European dragons have a reputation for being a bit evil.  I like drawing cute western dragons too, maybe I will draw one soon.  Hope you enjoy!

Vintage Carriage Advertisement Graphic

Like many people, I love antique advertisements. They have a lot of classic salesman speak in them and some are so well written I would consider buying it if it was still around! Vintage carriage advertisements are really beautiful with all the detail in the spokes and the body of the carriage.

I am sure you all noticed that Eclectic Cycle got a bit of an update. I wanted my art to pop a bit more from the page, but keep finding wallpaper that was just too busy. This grey speckled background with the new header gives my site more character, I think! Hope you enjoy...

Brown Deer Head Vintage Graphic

I showed this vintage doe art awhile back and have been meaning to show a more edited version of just the head.  She is so cute I think she deserves a second showing!  She would be great for woodland paper crafts.
