Moon Eaters

The last few weeks have been busy beyond belief. who knew having everyone in quarantine would encourage a bunch of businesses to kick start that software project they’ve been sitting on for months? I can’t complain though, busy is better than bored, and having a job that lets me work from home is very lucky. … More Moon Eaters

Quarantine Reads

If, like me, you’ve been asked to self-isolate, or just put into a straight up lockdown, you may be looking for some suggestions of what to do with your time. I’ve been filling much of my spare time with writing, which has been great for my productivity. I’m over one third of the way through … More Quarantine Reads

Harpy

Another art post for a bit of fun. Here is a quick painting of Harpy, Lisana’s pet mooncalf, a demon/animal hybrid. While most of her farmyard siblings died young, Harpy was strong enough to make it through puppyhood. She is smart (even by border collie standards) and well-mannered, although she has been known to spit … More Harpy

For a bit of fun, I decided to make some Funko Pops of a few of my characters. If I had it my way I’d make one for every character, but that may be getting a bit ahead of myself. These two are Maker and Ana, the main characters from my in-progress steampunk novel. Maker … More Clockwork Pops

Ana Davenport

This watercolour was done years ago, and served as the first inspiration for my in-progress steampunk fantasy novel. Ana lives a double life as a governess by day, and a city prowling vigilante by night. Stay tuned for more artwork from the Clockwork Universe.

The Banshee Queen

This is a rough painting of Queen Clíodhna (Klee-uh-nah), the banshee queen. Pictured left in her glamoured form (so that she appears human), and right in her true form. She features in the current chapter of Mercy that I’m working on, and I had the urge to draw her on the iPad. Banshees are infamous … More The Banshee Queen

Music to Write to

This week I finally got access to the complete album from the very talented Lena Matienko. The new album Mosaic is a compilation of gorgeous instrumentals, which are perfect for writing to. If you’re anything like me, you can’t write to songs with lyrics, or the words somehow end up in the dialogue, so instrumentals … More Music to Write to

The Painted Cats

A little piece of teaser artwork for a project I have in the works. These ladies are members of the only all-female gang on the desert word Isparda. The Painted Cats are one of many governing gangs on Isparda, which is one of five planets in the system. Stay tuned for more teasers and tidbits … More The Painted Cats
