Bryony Alternate Cover by ursulav
Bryony Alternate Cover
Fooling around with cover design experiments over on my blog and this was the result of a few variations on the cover of my novel Bryony & Roses.

(Now with correct link!)

One of these days--you know, in my copious spare time--I may go back and update covers on all the T. Kingfisher books, but that is such a grim amount of work that the heart cringes.

Font is "Fairy-Tale" and I spent a lot of time hand fiddling with ligatures.
Woo! Topatoco is now handling all my art prints!

First they're awesome, fast, and high quality, and secondly I can finally remove my Mail Stuff bag from my truck!

Well, let's see. I'm a painter and children's book author, I live in North Carolina, and...uh...just go look at the art. The art will tell you everything you need to know, and a lot of things you probably didn't.

I'm the author/illustrator of the Eisner-nominated webcomic Digger and the children's books "Nurk" and "Dragonbreath" from Harcourt-Brace and Penguin Dial, all of which can be purchased through Amazon (visit for direct links.)

Almost all art shown here can be purchased in print form at or by dropping me a note or an e-mail.

I am not accepting commissions at this time, and will not be for the foreseeable future.

I tracked you down because I love Cryptic Stitching a lot! I am very in love with the world and even though its story isn't complete I am so glad I took the time to play it and go on adventures as a little stuffed bunny.

Yes! I finally found your Deviantart page!
Today I looked out my front door to discover the post person had left my copy of Hamster Princess: Of Mice and Magic on the stoop, in the rain.  I invited it in and decided it could use a cup of lemon and honey.  I then got distracted cleaning my kitchen until I realized I was trying to impress an inanimate object into being my friend.
So I read it and drank lemon honey; it made a cold rainy day better.  Thank you.

Hello! I have been looking at your art and just simply admiring it all. It's all so intriguing and unique. Your style is different than others and the ideas you have are quite marvelous! After looking at your info I would like to say that I too would one day like to become an author and illustrator of my very own books and works. It is encouraging and inspiring to see someone who has made that come true! Thank you for being here and giving me some more hope in pursuing my dream!

At long last, I found my way along the Non-Euclidean path that led to your glorious Deviantart page!
My first encounter with your art were your Happy Cthulhu pictures, and I like your art style in general.
I did some 'cute Shoggoth' stuff a while back. Check them out if you like.
