Firstly, I wanted to say thank you for all your kind words and messages of congratulations regarding my recent Hugo Win! You are all incredibly supportive and I was really touched :) :heart:

I wanted to let people know that if you missed out on my recent "Imagined Realms: Book 1" Kickstarter, you can now purchase the digital products on Gumroad! The PDF books and downloadable process videos are available in different bundles. Check it out here. :)

"Imagined Realms: Book 2" will (hopefully) be launching in early Spring 2015 :)

Here is another piece that I had worked on for Imagined Realms, but I ended up cutting for the final book. :)

This is an extra piece that I had been working on that didn’t make the cut for the Imagined Realms book. I thought it was kind of fun, though, so I went ahead and finished up anyway this week. :)

Sunday, I was awarded the 2014 Hugo Award for Best Professional Artist! www.thehugoawards.org/ It still feels a bit unreal. I am so grateful to have been given this honor. Thank you so much to everyone for your support! And congratulations also to the other Best Professional Artist nominees, Galen Dara, John Picacio, Dan Dos Santos, Fiona Staples, and John Harris, who are all wonderful and amazing artists. 

Also, as reminder, the Imagined Realms Kickstarter ends tomorrow, so don't forget to check it out if you haven't already!

(Sorry for the double-post!! There was a glitch; didn't mean to do that)

I am very excited to announce that
 Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab has created a new hand-blended perfume oil based on the "Scholars' Tower" artwork!     

 SCHOLARS' TOWER: 

"Gleaming amber spheres, polished cedar and mahogany, sweet parchment, inks of frankincense ash, and soft plumes of incense."

The "Scholars' Tower" perfume oil is presented in a 5ml amber apothecary vial, and is available as follows:

  • $45: BPAL "Scholar's Tower" perfume oil blend + one 11x14" print of Scholar's Tower (plus digital rewards)
  • $60: BPAL Scholar's Tower" perfume oil blend + one copy of Imagined Realms: Book 1 (plus digital rewards)
  • $65: BPAL Scholar's Tower" perfume oil blend + one Signed copy of Imagined Realms: Book 1 (plus digital rewards)

 (Note that the books and artwork will ship separately from the perfume.) If you've already pledged but would like to also purchase the Scholars' Tower perfume oil, you can either switch your pledge, or contact me through Kickstarter about adding it to your order. Deepest thanks to Elizabeth Barrial and Brian Constantine at Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab for their help and for collaborating with me on this!


In addition, Imagined Realms has hit the 30k stretch goal! That means that now, everyone who pledges $15 and up gets an additional downloadable process video!

For only $20, you can get 6x8 prints of all TEN images, the PDF version of Imagined Realms: Book 1, another PDF book showing process sketches for older pieces, and TWO 1.5 hour long downloadable videos that show my painting process for "Scholars' Tower" and "Downtime," and a Thank You postcard with an exclusive new illustration/sketch that will not be posted online. That's not too shabby! 

****

Imagined Realms is an annual art publication featuring positive and diverse representations of women in fantasy and science fiction. Each book will feature 10 exclusive new illustrations created by me specifically for the book.

Available for purchase are the printed books, 6”x8” and 11”x14” print packs that have all 10 illustrations, limited edition fine art giclees, and a downloadable process video showing my digital painting method. 

Please check it out and spread the word! www.kickstarter.com/pr…

Just wanted to say how great your artwork is! Keep it up and please do share :)
I'm simply in love with the variety of characters you draw.... how some of them are Caucasian, some are African or Asian, some have perfect bodies and some are plump or thin, some are young and some are aged... the world has so many different kinds of beauty, and it's great you incorporate this in your work.
