The Cult of Lincoln

The time is finally upon us! Check out the map I illustrated for Jim Butcher's First Lord's Fury, which hits stores November 24th. For those new to my mapsquee, FLF is the sixth book in the internationally bestselling fantasy series The Codex Alera. I'm so thrilled to be a part of it.

Download the map as desktop wallpaper in about every desktop size imaginable:


I'm eager to hear your thoughts. :D

Twitter is down. Where do I go to flail about this in 140 characters or fewer? Oh yeah, I have a blog!

So. My Epic Comic Con Post of Epicness has taken a back seat to a far more pressing deadline. Rather than merely plotting out the skeleton of the map to be printed in First Lord's Fury, book 6 of the Codex Alera, I'm now illustrating the finished product! My artwork is going to be published in tens of thousands of copies of the landmark final novel in an internationally bestselling series. And I'm being paid considerably more than the figure I originally ballparked when pitching the map idea to Jim and the Penguin folks.

No pressure. :D

Needless to say, I'm thrilled beyond belief. Thrilled and intimidated. Thrilled, intimidated, and flattered, and filled with almost fanatical devotion to the Pope. Not only is it a huge responsibility, but it's a staggering vote of confidence in my abilities as an artist. Someone whose opinion I respect had such faith in my skills that he felt I was the best choice for such an important job. Wow.

Jim and I were tossing ideas back and forth last night, and I felt positively giddy at what we were coming up with. It's an inspiration, collaborating with such a creative mind. There's so much I want to include! Jim essentially told me to pull out all the stops, and that's what I'm going to do. I can't wait to prove myself worthy of this honor.

India's poor urged to 'eat rats'

And an even more brain-injuring political move: A McCain advisor seeks to solve the health care crisis through semantics. I did a double-take, convinced I was reading an Onion analogue.

Illustrating and cartooning blog Drawn! posts some excellent Ronald Searle-related links! So much love for Ronald Searle! Anyone that hasn't read Molesworth is missing out on something extraordinary.

*snorks* I was cleaning out my bookmarks the other day, and I found this article. Nice job finding artwork relevant to the comic itself, instead of fanart. By me. Displayed without credit. :D

I've finally gotten around to posting my artsy photos from the massive Sappy Lincoln Narratives road trip, from the beginning of this summer. Maybe someday I'll actually write a blog entry about it! See photos from Dinosaur National Monument, Arches, Mesa Verde, The Grand Canyon, Antelope Point, Zion, Grand Canyon Caves, and Havasupai!


Then hurrah, the Doctor Sketchy's tradition continues! See my drawings here!

Two new creative-type posts in the LJ: a delightfully silly round-robin Dresden/Discworld crossover for Becky and a bunch of doodles from a figure drawing session at Dr. Sketchy's!
