Illustration of John Childermass, from the book  Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, dealing tarot cards.  He's sort of a magician, I guess.  It makes more sense if you read the book.  I might illustrate some scenes from the book, depends . . . Ink washes, on watercolor paper.  Partial reference used, mostly for the hands/body.  I tried to make him look the way I imagined, although I pretty much failed in that aspect.

Tallest Tower

A story about a wizard. I'm not entirely sure what the point of this story is. Originally I think there was some attempt at symbolism, but I forgot what I wanted to do. Oh well, tell me what you think.

Diamonds and Rust Ch1

'Diamonds and Rust' is the name of one of the few good songs I have heard on my Dad's folk music radio station. (Folk music- be afraid, be very afraid.) Joan Baez or someone sings it. The song has nothing directly to do with this story, but the title fits, so that's what I'm using at the moment. I've had pieces of this story floating in my head for a while, I just finally made up characters and more of a plot. I like enough to post it here. It has two parts, this is the beginning of part one. Please comment! I do not have much faith in my writing capabilities, and I would like to improve.

Mechanized Magiks Ch 1: Of Jewel Shops and Taxidermy

Well, a lot of things inspired this, I don't remember them all . . . basically, I wanted to write a story with weird characters with weird names, set in 1800's England (or something very close to it, as I know virtually nothing about 1800's England.) Edit: changed the title. Edit: Reworked a little. Hopefully I can get on to Ch 2 soon . . . Construtive Criticism is very welcome :)
