Some FanArt – The Baby Eaters by Ian McHugh

This is artwork inspired by The Baby Eaters by Ian McHugh appearing in the current edition of Clarkesworld. I mostly drew this because the story has good visuals and I felt a lack of creature/alien art in my life.

Enjoy.

Island Green Makes the List

In great news, my short story Island Green from Ticonderoga Publishing’s Ecopunk! anthology has made the Best Novella shortlist of both the Aurealis and Ditmar Awards.

Thank you to the judges and convenors and those who voted for me.

Thanks to Ticonderoga and editors Liz Grzyb and Cat Sparks for the chance to be part of this amazing project. Ecopunk! is excellent reading and tells science fiction stories of a positive future.

Murder for Fun and Profit

Felicity Banks

After tossing around ideas and a lot of, “Wouldn’t it be cool if….”, it’s really happening.

Murder in the Mail is a story told through letters, objects, and artworks physically posted to the reader over the course of eight weeks.

The reader is a character in the story, invited to guess the identity of the killer each week. The Murder in the Mail forums are a place where readers can compare clues and insights, helping (or hampering) one another. Everything, including the art, contains clues to be unravelled.

The first story in the series is A Bloody Birthday.

Art For Lackington’s Magazine 15

Artwork I created for Evelyn Deshane’s story Her Cactus Heart in Lackington’s Magazine.

The story is about two girls secretly falling in love in a post-apocalyptic wasteland dominated by wild cacti and the bones of the dead. There are purple winged insects that may or may not be spying upon a budding young friendship.

The Jack of Masks

This is the last of the jacks I did for CSFG Publishing’s upcoming A Hand of Knaves anthology. Since the other three cards focused heavily on the genres, science fiction, fantasy and horror, I wanted to give a shout out to urban and contemporary fantasy with this final card.

A tough girl with a dragon delivering pizza? Hell yes, I hope someone writes her story in the anthology.

A fire conjuring boy with his trio of ferrets? What adventures they might have!

Hope you liked the art. I’ll post back when the cover design eventually goes up.
