Fan Art Tuesday: The Creator

This is the last Nine Kings Fan Art entry before the deadline this Saturday. We’re featuring a card submitted by Rianna Stahl–one that’s not canon, per se, but it’s fitting nonetheless.

Everyone on Team Weeks LOVES the entries y’all have sent in, and we’re super excited to see what else you’ve got!

Here’s the link to the list of cards mentioned in the books.

And FYI, this is the last week the Brent Weeks webstore will be open, so get those shirts and books while you can!

Fan Art Tuesday: Andross the Red

Today’s Nine Kings Fan Art Contest entry comes to us from Shea, who created a lovely rendition of Andross the Red.

As described in THE BLINDING KNIFE: “It was a young Andross Guile, handsome, strong, a warrior, a white dagger in his hand, tattered cloak billowing around him, three young boys behind him, one to his right, the other to his left, one barely visible in the distance. Orholam, he looks like a hero.”

If you enjoy Shea’s work as much as we do, and want to see more, she’s on Twitter @fairy_Fort and has a webcomic, Magefront.

And remember, the deadline for the contest is NOVEMBER 30!

A sincere thank you to everyone who contributed to this!

Fan Art Tuesday: The Fallen Prophet

It’s Tuesday again, y’all! This Nine Kings Fan Art, submitted as part of the Nine Kings Fan Art Contest, was created by Caitlin:

This card appears in THE BLINDING KNIFE, though there’s no description of how it looks. Which means Caitlin came up with the design entirely on her own. Bravo!

We’re also here to share the description of another Nine Kings card. This one is Gunner’s:

Captain Gunner: a lean, night-black Ilytian man, bare-chested under a fine royal blue waistcoat. He has a scattered dark beard, and his wiry black hair is in a thick ponytail. He wears tattered loose trousers cut off just below the knee.

Remember, the deadline is now November 30, and the contest is open to fans all over the world!

Fan Art Tuesday: Tour Magic

Well friends,

The White Hot Book Tour is officially over. It was exhilarating, and exhausting, and inspiring, and resplendent. One for the ages.

And it included some really lovely artwork from fans. Like this fun illustration of Gavin:

A fan gave this to us at Powell’s. I snapped a picture to share here.

“So CAPSLOCK, who exactly was this fan? Does she have any other work online?”

Ummmmmm, I forgot to ask. Ever true to form.

Any way, this is my segue into a reminder that we are holding a Nine Kings Fan Art Contest, and you should enter! Click through for details.

Also, I’m here to remind fans in the US and the UK that you still have two days to enter the Orbit Loot Giveaway, if you haven’t already. The ONLY WAY to get this prize–an exclusive Lightbringer hardcover box set–is to enter the giveaway. All you need is an email address!
