Psychedelic Portraits: My new art store on Etsy

I’ve opened an Etsy store to sell custom, commissioned portraits and abstract art as well as finished pieces. Find it here: http://j.mp/PsycheArt

I seek through my art to represent the life and movement that makes up the entire universe. There is no surface or area of space that is not filled with energy and movement; quantum particles pop in and out of existence even in deepest space. It’s the quantum foam of existence. So through my detailed marker drawings, I am representing this endless energy and the unity of animate and inanimate objects—at a subatomic level, it is all one. Matter is just one form of energy. I’m creating a sensation of life through inorganic abstract shapes.

The drawings are on acid-free archival paper with a variety of markers. I take anywhere from 6 – 8 weeks on each piece, working with a magnifying glass to produce very fine lines.

Best-selling fantasy author Jeff VanderMeer, the author of Annihilation and Authority, rated my novel A Greater Monster 4 stars out of 5 on Goodreads. I thanked him on Twitter, and he said it was “…a really cool and unique read! Beautiful book, too, in the design.”

Jeff VanderMeer rates A Greater Monster 4 stars

It was really quite a thrill for me to get this response because VanderMeer is one of my favorite authors. Here’s my review of Authority, book two in his Southern Reach trilogy.

A long and painful process

A Greater Monster is now available in ebook format. PDF, EPUB, or MOBI (for Kindle and Nook) versions can be purchased directly from me here and the Kindle version is also available direct from Amazon here The EPUB is in the iBookstore here.

Due to the unusual graphic design in my book, it does not lend itself well to the reflowable text found in ebooks. For that reason, the PDF is actually the only one that exactly matches the print edition. I had to make some compromises in the other versions. It was a long and painful process to get them done, having fired two different ebook developers. It took me two and a half years, but I stuck with it. My third vendor finally delivered. If you are an author looking for a reasonably priced professional service, check out Aptara at aptaracorp.com. They were politely agreeable to my demanding perfectionism.

Oh, and here’s a silly interview I did a while back. It’s a game of “Would You Rather” on The Next Best Book Club blog.

I think I’d rather eat my own hand than go through that ebook design process again.
