White Jackalope

6 x 12, mixed media on collaged manga

Being a mythical creature is often a burden. Also, I spent the last six months drawing unending jackalopes, and I think there was like, art burn-in or something…

Anyway, a small piece for an upcoming con, unless somebody wants to take it home first. Prints are available!

I have also hedged around with caveats, finished up a scene, and sent what I’ve got of Regency Ninja to my agent, against my better judgement. So we’ll see how that goes!

Back to con prep…


Originally published at Tea with the Squash God. You can comment here or there.


Nice jackalope.

Hurray! for Regency Ninja. What to call it? "Tea, Ton, and Tabi" perhaps?

I think that's a lovely name.

Hooray! for the Regency Ninja. I hope your agent likes it.

hooray for Regency Ninja! and many excellent things come about despite our better judgements!

Squee about Regency Ninja!!!

The jackalope is cute, too, although he looks nothing like the mounted one at Wall Drug.

Gail Carriger could doubtless use some friendly competition.

Also, Steven Brust will probably approve:
The Cool Stuff Theory of Literature is as follows: All literature consists of whatever the writer thinks is cool. The reader will like the book to the degree that he agrees with the writer about what’s cool. And that works all the way from the external trappings to the level of metaphor, subtext, and the way one uses words. In other words, I happen not to think that full-plate armor and great big honking greatswords are cool. I don’t like ‘em. I like cloaks and rapiers. So I write stories with a lot of cloaks and rapiers in ‘em, ’cause that’s cool. Guys who like military hardware, who think advanced military hardware is cool, are not gonna jump all over my books, because they have other ideas about what’s cool.

The novel should be understood as a structure built to accommodate the greatest possible amount of cool stuff.

In this case including proper manners, abundant courtesy, a pestilence of urchins, and ninjas.

Oh dear gods yes.
