Becoming Deviant

I’ve blown the dust off my old DeviantArt account. If you want to follow my drawing and painting, that will be the best place to do it. I’ll still share some paintings and drawings on this blog, but I plan to upload most of my new output on DeviantArt. It’s funny to think that One Last Sketch was finally living up to its title again, but I think it’s more appropriate to keep the literary focus going here.

I’ve actually lived up to my vow from nearly a year ago to draw something every day, and it’s resulted some concrete, demonstrable improvement. That’s hugely rewarding, and I’m going to keep at it for the foreseeable future.

Example: The drawing on the left is from October 2016, the painting on the right, March 2017. I’ve been doing a few repaints of work from a few months ago, in part to get a sense of “where I’m at” with this whole art thing.

Two bits of news today, my first full day of being 28 years old (ooh, just a couple of years left where I can mark “new generation writer” on my short story submissions…):

  1. The Book Smugglers’ Quarterly Almanac Vol. 2 is now available for purchase, which includes a reprint of my short story “Mrs. Yaga” along with various other goodies. Details of where to get it and a free giveaway here.
  2. You can pre-order Those Who Make Us: Canadian Creature, Myth and Monster Stories and oggle at the cover art. I’m proud to have a story in here, and the lineup of other authors looks amazing. I can’t wait for it to come out on November 1st.

Clockwork Canada: Steampunk Fiction was released today and received a fantastic review on Tor.com from Haralambi Markov, with some attention given to my story “Strange Things Done.” Get the anthology from Exile EditionsAmazon.caAmazon.com, and Chapters-Indigo.

I’m also appearing in another Exile Editions anthology later this year, Those Who Make Us: Canadian Monsters, Creatures and Myths. You can view the table of contents here. “A New Bestiary” transplants medieval ideas on monstrosity into a cyberpunk-infused Montreal, and probably contains the most in-jokes out of anything I’ve ever written.
