‘I’m an insect who dreamt he was a man and loved it.’ (Don’t look if you’re scared of bugs!)

Art it Up.  This is a weekly meme hosted by Tabitha over at Not Yet Read.  The idea being to see if you can come up with some inspiration for a little sketch or doodle from your last week’s reading or just anything else in general. this week I’m reading the wonderful Iron Ghost by Jen Williams.  I love this book so far!  The diagram is only a tiny sample of one particularly nasty lair that crops up in the story – a nest of giant centipedes and instead of 3 – there’s 3,000!  And they need to collect food for their…. no, sorry, no spoilers.  Don’t be put off – this is only a tiny part of the story and it is totally gripping – plus Wyverns and Griffins and Wydrin!

Woman’s best friend????

Art it Up.  This is a weekly meme hosted by Tabitha over at Not Yet Read.  The idea being to see if you can come up with some inspiration for a little sketch or doodle from your last week’s reading or just anything else in general. this week I’ve been reading Atlanta Burns by Chuck Wendig and The Ice Twins by S K Tremayne.  I’ve taken my inspiration from Atlanta Burns and tried a sketch of Whitey!

The Topic for Tough Travel at Fantasy Review Barn this week was Law Enforcement.  Check out this week’s books!

Check on over to Tabitha’s place – her artwork is always quite gorgeous!!

Art it Up.  This is a weekly meme hosted by Tabitha over at Not Yet Read.  The idea being to see if you can come up with some inspiration for a little sketch or doodle from your last week’s reading or just anything else in general. this week I’ve been reading No.5 and 6 of Karina Cooper’s St Croix Chronicles (I already sketched a big top last week).  So for inspiration this week I’m going nice and easy – the Fantasy Review Barn tough travelling topic for the day is ‘pets’.  Today is a Dude doodle – or a Dude’ll – basically put, my dog doesn’t like to behave – below is his rule number one – ‘1. You threw it not me!’

Roll Up, Roll Up….

Art it Up.  This is a weekly meme hosted by Tabitha over at Not Yet Read.  The idea being to see if you can come up with some inspiration for a little sketch or doodle from your last week’s reading or just anything else in general. this week I’ve reviewed The Just City by Jo Walton – which is all about a city that aims to be just and also I’ve read Karina Cooper’s Tempered (No.4 of the St Croix Chronicles review to follow – 1, 2 and 3 here).  If you’ve read any of the St Croix books you’ll understand my circus ‘big top’.  For the Just City I went for the Statue of Justice – but I’ve changed it and tipped the scales!  Both very good reads.  Sketches – well, a bit ropey but strangely I enjoy having a scribble.  Now, check out Not Yet Read for all the goodies!

Snakes and Snark….

Art it Up.  This is a weekly meme hosted by Tabitha over at Not Yet Read.  The idea being to see if you can come up with some inspiration for a little sketch or doodle from your last week’s reading or just anything else in general. this week I’ve read Tainted Blood (part of the Generation V series by M L Brennan which I’m loving and Owl and the Japanese Circus by Kristi Charish which I’ve also really enjoyed and will post a review for shortly.  The Charish book had a Naga – won’t say more – which is a half woman/half snake character.  I’m also using inspiration from this week’s Tough Travel over at The Fantasy Review Barn where the topic is ‘Snarky Sidekicks’ – the picture here is actually where one of my characters resides and the lights are on – which means he’s at home – any guesses?? FullSizeRender-15FullSizeRender-13
