Eulogy is here!

Sat Aug 29, 2015, 11:17 AM

Those of you who have been following me know I have been working on illustrations for my daughter's first novel, Eulogy.  Well, it has finally been officially published and is available on Amazon in a paperback print edition (with my illustrations) for $16 and a Kindle edition (without the illustrations) for $5.  It's a very exciting achievement for her!  (for anyone, actually). 

It's an adventure/romance that takes place in a setting reminiscent of medieval France, about an orphaned girl who becomes trained as a mercenary.  The main character is a lesbian, and in addition to her adventures as a trained spy and warrior, the story deals with the emotional struggles she faces as an unconventional young woman.

You should buy it, read it, and review it!  There's also a face book page for it...go ahead and like it, and we would be grateful and consider you an extremely cool and progressive person :)

Here are the illustrations that are part of the book.

I am a software engineer who, after 30 years of focusing on marriage, kids, career, and other pursuits, has decided to try and resurrect the drawing skills that have languished since college. I started with digital art, but found that I spent too much time in front of the computer. So after much experimenting, I have returned to my favorite medium, traditional pen and ink.…

So, how many times have you managed to nail yourself with a crow quill?
outsidelogic Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ha, many!  I used to keep them in these upright pen holders on the side of my drawing table, so that the nibs stuck up in the air.  But it was deadly when I reached across to my desk.  Scratched hand, ruined nib, and the pen goes flying across the room...   Now I keep the brushes there...and the pens are in holders that are right next to the wall.  Much safer...!

since I've stumbled upon your artwork multiple times in very different ways now and it always captured my eye, I've just added you to my watch list.
All I can do at this point (because I have no valuable critique or tips to offer) is to congratulate you on your very accomplished portfolio. everything seems very tidy and polished, yet intuitive and effortless - in short, everything I was hoping to be able to do some(far-away)day.
so...thank you for sharing your work and inspiring me to try harder.  :)

Well, that made my day!  Thank you for the wonderful comment.  I'm glad you like my work.  I assure you it's not effortless, but if it looks that way, then that's an accomplishment!

I must say I hopped over to your dA page expecting some beginner-type work, and...what a surprise!  Your drawings are wonderful.  I especially like the ink work for "the box".

I'm happy I contributed something positive to your day.  :)
looking forward to seeing more of your wonderful artwork. I also guess I can learn quite a bit, though I'm progressing rather slowly...

thank you, these kind words are much appreciated.  :)  to think a seasoned artist like yourself can find something good in my work is very flattering.
