Sacre Bleu by Christopher Moore

There was a nice surprise in the post a couple of days ago! Last year Christopher Moore, the author approached me wondering if he might be able to use 'The Absinthe Fairy' on an upcoming book. The thing is it would have to be 'blue' for reasons, self evident! So I made the changes and this is the result! Enormously happy and grateful to Christopher for wanting to use the image! Thank you! Funny how a character design for an on-line challenge has such a journey!

And you can see the original HERE

Please excuse the awful photographs! :)

That's really cool! Glad to see that pieces continue their life span further than just one shot.

I think I actually remember watching the development of that during the concept art challenge!

Again, congratulations.

Oh that is SO cool! I'm going to see him this weekend and getting a copy signed, and bringing him a portrait I'm working on, to exchange autographs. He's a great author, and your artwork is gorgeous. Congratulations!
