Originally published in Fantasy Magazine, June 2010, Lost Dogs and Fireplace Archaeology is about the children of the men and women in the US Army who grow up going to ten different schools, who lose and find friends at every post, and the pieces of themselves they leave behind every time they move.
Okay, I've posted them–www.SaltwaterWitch.com! For the foreseeable future I'm going to draw panels on my iPad (color when I can) and letter in Photoshop, hoping to get this down as a system that won't take all of my time. I have the rest of this chapter and a bunch of the next–roughly twelve pages–planned out, storyboarded but really sloppy. I drew eleven panels yesterday in Art Rage and Sketchbook Pro, which is a lot for me, and the quality is pretty good. I'm doing a lot more with gestures and facial expressions. Disgust is a really tough one to capture. I like the way all of these pages came out, enough to post them. Haven't colored the last four, but I'm going to keep moving.
Firsts: first time drawing a toilet.
Questions? Comments? I'd love to hear what you think!
See chapters 1 – 12 here:
With updated pages! I put these back up last night but forgot to tell anyone. I haven't put up the new pages I'm working on–the rest of chapter 12, but you should notice some updates through the first couple chapters. I'm still a bit embarrassed about a lot of the art and lettering in chapters 2 through 8, and I'm working on new panels for 12, and redrawing existing pages as I get time.
Here's a new page from chapter 2 followed by the old page–I just realized Kassandra is pointing the wrong way in the old page. The windows should be to her right:
I'm giving away 20 signed and numbered limited edition accordion folded prints (signed series of 100). See the images of the contest art at the bottom of this post. Each comes with a signed info document (see the single green-shaded image below).
Here's how to play—it's easy, there are only two steps:
1. Do one of these:
- Buy a copy of Saltwater Witch, Seaborn or Sea Throne through any of the stores, services, or platforms linked below.
- Post a review of Saltwater Witch, Seaborn or Sea Throne on any of the stores, services, or platforms linked below.
- Spread the word about any or all the books through your blog, Facebook, or site.
2. Let me know:
Send me an email or comment here, telling me which of the three things above you did and that you want to be entered into the drawing. Just say, "I got Saltwater Witch for the Kindle. Enter me in the drawing for a print.", or "I reviewed Seaborn here…" (My email is email@example.com)
I will draw five names a week for the next four weeks.
A few more rules: you can enter multiple times. For instance, you can enter once for each book, once for each review, once for each spread-the-news post. Unless you win one of the prints, you remain in the pool for the next drawing.
Onward and downward!
