Fan Art Friday (45)

This week's fan art is based on Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston. I struggled with this one quite a bit. I had Kelley and Sonny just standing there in a forest, looking bored. I probably could've added sparkles & wings and made it all pretty. But where's the fun in that? So I decided to do the poster on one of my favorite things about the book: Lucky. The mysterious kelpie that took shelter in Kelley's bathtub. I hope I did the scene, or scenes, justice. I'm not sure how to make a horse look like a kelpie, so don't squash me too much. But onto the fan art..

I realize the quote is from the second book, Darklight, but I wanted something kind of funny and fitting and it definitely fit the bill. Thoughts? Yay kelpie or would you have rather seen the trainwreck that was Kelley and Sonny?

As always, if you have YA fan art you'd like featured on Fan Art Friday, send me an email at If everyone could please start spreading the word about this, I'd be forever grateful. It's a lot of working doing these every week, and don't get me wrong, I LOVE doing it. But I need breaks every now and then!

Have an awesome weekend, everyone!
