Check out this awesome fan art by Pen Astridge.
nendo_angel_of_the_shadows_by_peastri-d84fpnk

She explains:
“It’s not an overly complex style, really it’s just figure photography with some photoshop work.
“Basically it’s piecing together different nendoroids (which is the name for these particular chibi style of figures) to look as close to the cover character as possible. Then I pose them and photograph them. Finally I photoshop them onto a background to complete the cover art. And that’s what I call them, ‘Cover Art’ kind of like a cover/remake of a song but of a cover of a book instead. So really it’s a cover cover.”

A Night Angel Love Story…?

A Night Angel Love Story…?

A reader’s mom wrote me recently:
0072_CMW8981_border

 



They “met on a Bart Train in SF California, my son was reading this book and she had just finished it…so she introduced herself….and a love story began.  He proposed in a book store [Four-Eyed Frog Books, where he arranged with the store owner to put The Way of Shadows in a place she would find it]. He carved the center out, placed his engagement ring in the center of the book….and when she found it he proposed.”
