Snippet from City of Heavenly Fire
cassandraclare sent me this scene to read. And I read it. And then I cried. And then I ran back to her begging her to let me draw a part of the scene into a comic and she said yes! So I did.
So I can’t say anything more about the scene but it’s glorious!
Most are in color but this one of Sebastian and Clary is in grays. The windows behind them both look onto different scenes, but they are in the same room.
"Hi, Cassie! Maybe you receive these messages a lot, and I hope I’m not bothering you. It’s just that I really loved the Shadowhunter Tarot Cards, and it seems like you haven’t unveiled all of them. Are you done with it, or is there another reason for you not post them? Thank you so much! — kbrinu"
No, I am just lazy and got distracted. I have no excuses! The last card posted was the Five of Runes, so here is the Six and Seven of Runes to get back on track. Runes=cups in the traditional tarot. The first is the rune for parabatai:
And the second is the rune for agape. Agape is selfless, unconditional love that borders on the divine.
for in companions
Whose souls do bear an equal yoke of love,
There must be needs a like proportion
Of lineaments, of manners, and of spirit
— The Merchant of Venice
Cassandra JP: I have finished December!
Me: I see you have drawn a homoerotic snowball fight.
CJP: It says Merry Winter Holidays to me.
October and November of the girls’ Shadowhunter calendar. Lucie being spooky for October and Jessamine celebrating Guy Fawkes Day.
Cassandra Jean and I are hoping to get the calendars put together and maybe sell them for Christmas. We’ll keep you posted!
Clary and Tessa as August and September for mine and Cassandra Jean’s calendar of Shadowhunter girls. Clary looks as if she is thinking ravishing thoughts about angels and Tessa is thinking ravishing thoughts about books: fitting!
See you guys on Saturday!!!
You should definitely stop by to hear about their exciting new projects. I’m just sayin.’ ;)
Sizzy, featuring Isabelle’s July picture from the pinup calendar. She looks more like a vamp than he does! #artby Cassandra Jean
More calendar pics! March Cecily and April Maia — I put them alongside March Will and April Matthew for compare and contrast. Everyone looks gorgeous thanks to Cassandra Jean.
Tiny wubbins baby wolf!
So the beautiful Cassandra (NOT me, Cassandra Jean) as you know collaborated to create a calendar of the TMI/TID/TDA/TLH boys — Men of the Shadowhunter Universe, I guess — and while I don’t know what we’re going to do with it yet, we decided to do a matching calendar for the girls. Cassandra wanted to work with classic pinup poses, so here’s Grace from TLH being ice queen January, and Helen and Aline being February 2014, celebrating Valentine’s Day*. Lookit Helen’s cute pointy ears!
*But not the way Valentine celebrates it.
