News: “Tristaria” Illustrated Novella Announcement

I teased a new novella at the end of last year and now I am ready to officially announce it. The title of this novella is Tristaria Volume 1: Of Palantaros and it will (hopefully) be the first in a trilogy of standalone yet interconnected novellas. You can see an image of the cover below.

I have been working on Tristaria Volume 1: Of Palantaros for many months now and it is 99.9% complete, so I have ordered what is essentially a paid author’s proof from Lulu, which I should have in my hands before the end of January. Once I have checked the proof and corrected any errors that I may find, I expect to release Tristaria on Lulu and Amazon in early February. I will provide further details soon!😊

Happy Birthday Maureen Flannigan!

The end of another year is nearly here and so it is time for one of my personal traditions: a drawing of Evie Garland from the 80s sit-com Out of this World. Every year I try to draw a picture of Evie to commemorate the birthday of the actress who portrayed her, the lovely Maureen Flannigan, whose birthday is today, December 30. This year I didn’t have much time to plan this drawing, so I simply chose to draw Evie as she appeared in one of my favourite episodes, titled The Three Faces of Evie. In that episode, Evie uses her alien powers to make herself older and the result is what I based my illustration on. Incidentally, this is the episode in which Evie utters the line “Au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!”, which I have used as the closing line on many of my posts on moedimension in the past, although I don’t think I’ve used it that much lately.😊

New Original Art: HNY2021

 

This is my New Year’s illustration for 2021, which will be the Year of the Ox (or Cow) in the Chinese zodiac. The uncensored version is available on my pixiv gallery, or my Fantia page. Well, the terrible year that was 2020 is nearly over and hopefully 2021 will be a lot better. It certainly couldn’t be worse, right?😋

New Original Art: XMAS2020

This is my Christmas illustration for this year. Uncensored versions (of which there are two) are available on both my pixiv gallery and my FANTIA page. I know there are a lot of people doing it tough in the world right now, but I hope this holiday season brings everybody at least a little bit of happiness.😊

New Heroine Headshot: Félicie Le Bras from “Ballerina”

Here’s another Heroine Headshot. This time, it’s Félicie Le Bras, the heroine from Ballerina (AKA Leap), a 2016 French-Canadian 3D animated film. Ballerina is a tale about a Victorian-era orphan who goes to Paris in an attempt to fulfil her dream of joining the prestigious Paris Opera as a dancer. I’ve been aware of Ballerina for quite a while, and I thought it looked like a fun film, but when I finally saw it for the first time a few days ago, I was quite impressed. It’s a beautifully animated film, and its art style and humour reminded me quite a lot of bande dessinées (i.e. Franco-Belgian comics, such as Asterix), which I’ve always been a fan of. It does have a few modern pop songs in it, which I found a bit jarring, but that is my one and only gripe. Overall, I thought it was a great film, and Félicie, who is a bundle of cheerful energy, is simply adorable.😊

Note: there seems to be a bit of confusion about Félicie’s family name, but since she is a French character, I chose to refer to her by the name she is given in the French version.
