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!
