holy carp.  

I have just finished the sixth and final story for the Old Races Short Story Project, FOUR MONTHS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE.

Excuse me while I do a dance of *glee*.

*dancie dancie dance*!

I am *really* pleased with myself. The project’s purpose was to get me to write half a dozen new Old Races stories for a possible collection, with an anticipated wordcount of about 30K. I seem to have written about 33K worth of shorts, so *bullseye*. Holy *crap*, I’m pleased. I’m rarely this delighted when I finish a project, so YAY WOW!

The Old Races Short Story Project patronage window is now closed.

Well, I am an artist. I haven't done cover art before, but I'd love a chance to try, even for cheap ;). I primarily work in graphite pencil, colored pencil, and calligraphy pen, and my style ranges from realism to abstract to minimalism. The closest thing to an online portfolio I have is my Zazzle store, where I have my original art and photos for sale as prints, t-shirts, coffee mugs, etc. I don't have everything scanned and uploaded yet, but it's a decent sampling of my range. I don't have my portraits there because they're a hard sell on a t-shirt :), but I can email a sample portrait to you if you'd like.

The store is www.Zazzle.com/AbstractRealm* If you're interested, you can send me a message on my LJ.

Thanks very much!

I can highly recommend my own Madam Art Director (and sister, full disclosure) for cover art at reasonable, won't kill you rates: http://friendlyquark.deviantart.com

For more abstract and from photo ref, I can recommend my dear friend and awesome graphic artist, Mike: http://mikeomni.com

Also, the incomparable MCA Hogarth: http://stardancer.org

If I think of anyone else reasonable and awesome, I'll add to this list. (I have a list, because y'know, small presses live and die on their covers, we gotta compete in other ways with the big boys).

I need a job so I can buy in >.< I know $15 doesn't seem like a lot but my parents are supporting me until I get gainfully employed and they have put a freeze on all 'unnecessary' purchases.
