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.

Your work is quite amazing. I enjoy reading your Dragonbreath series even though I am an adult myself. I'm also in shock that you've been on this site since 2002! I was only five years old and now I am nineteen. All I can say is Congratulations on your accomplishments! Good Luck on your 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.
