"Do you want to tell them?" "No. But SOMEONE has to tell them." "All right... you tell them." "No, you tell them." "You're closest to the surface. You can tell them." "They creep me out, humans do. You tell them." "I'm allergic. YOU tell them."
1) Congratulations on the Hugo nomination! You've got my vote! 2) This piece floored me. I absolutely love it, and want a print. 3) I'm glad that you contracted with Writing Excuses/Dragonsteel to let them (okay, US) use this on the cover of SHADOWS BENEATH. It's the perfect cover art for our book.
4) I said three, but back to #2, I really really want a print.
Thank you so much! It was an honor to provide the artwork. I went ahead and uploaded the print here, but it's also available at my inprnt gallery, which imo provides better quality: www.inprnt.com/gallery/juliedi…
You've illustrated all my fears of sailing. ALL of them.
This is truly one of the coolest and creepiest pictures I've seen. I know it's stating the obvious, but I really admire just how many unique beasties you've managed to smoosh together here. Great work!
