Here is the cover preview of my next novel The Ouroboros Cycle, Book One: A Monster’s Coming Of Age Story, which is coming this fall. It’s a story of adventure, romance, revenge, and vampires. The book is fully illustrated by two of the most incredible artists I have ever seen, so be sure to check it out this fall.
For more hints on what The Ouroboros Cycle will contain, be sure to check out its Pinterest board here: http://pinterest.com/gdfalksen/the-ouroboros-cycle

So far I’ve only posted little hints and teasers of my work for this book, but here’s the cover featuring one of my illustrations in full!

Oh, Fyodor, these are just spectacular.

Silhouette demons - another set of 2.5 by 3.5 inch miniatures. The one in the Elizabethan ruff and the two Edwardians (middle) are my favorites.

Also, hello, recent followers! Where’d you babies come from?

So beautiful!

Illustration for a Baritarian fairy tale. I drew the picture first, and then Lawrence made up a wonderful story about it. I don’t want to tell it yet, though, because I would like to make it into a comic.

More teasers of the paper dolls. I have just one more to go!

I really couldn’t love this more.

Two Ton Tessie is two tons o’fun! I guess I’m drawing a whole sideshow now.

I could talk about how I downloaded this great app of poses for artists and have been practicing my skills and technique, but let’s face it, I just wanted to draw a nice ass. And a lot of tattoos. And a five-legged great dane puppy. Because obviously.

From the Sketchy’s in Paris? I saw the photos and was completely obsessed.

Salome, as inspired by a life-drawing salon my friend S. hosted in Paris with Vicky Butterfly. I just wanted to  mindlessly draw a lot of tiny pretty details.

Another thing I drew while trying to function on very little sleep. Silent storytelling fascinates me in pretty much all its forms, and I didn’t realize how much I wanted to try it in comics until I just started drawing this. The paper buckled too much and the lines don’t look as clean as I would have liked because of it, but for a headache and four hours of sleep after a gig the night before, I’m pleased. Wish there was a less invasive place for the watermark, too. Oh well.
When my husband asked me who it was, I said I didn’t know, but that Baritaria wasn’t a good place for intelligentsia in 1939 (Soviet rule, etc.). He replied, quite reasonably, that it wasn’t a good place for intelligentsia anywhere in 1939.

Love.

It’s November, I’m homesick, so here are some despondent exiled Russians - Ella and Alex.

I have been sketching Ella, Alex and Valliet III to get ready for the next chapter in Baritarian Boy. I am so excited about it,  just wish I had the time to work on it now! But I have too many other projects that need taking care of first.
Not completely satisfied with Alexander (I have been having problems with top hats lately), but Valliet III is spot on. Aww, narcoleptic king in exile turned gossip columnist!

Celebrating the Christmas truce of 1914 is a tradition in our home. Neither Lawrence nor I are religious, so the holiday does not mean much to us in the spiritual sense, but the truce and everything wonderful in humanity that it represents means a great deal around here. Last year I printed WWI Christmas cards from as many different countries as I could find and hung them all in garlands next to each other around the house - German and English, French, Canadian, Italian, Russian. We usually wrap our gifts to look like packages sent to the front and watch Joyeux Noël.
So for the coming season, I wanted to draw this. Time completely got away from me in terms of making greeting cards for Halloween, so I wanted to get as much of a head start on Christmas as possible. Closer to the holidays, I’ll be printing these up and putting them up for sale on Etsy. 
I know that’s a rather clean looking trench and field there, and I know most of the Christmas truce was spent finding and burying each other’s dead across No Man’s Land… But I decided to refrain from drawing torn up limbs and blood-stained churned up snow in a Christmas card. 
Also, is it just me or did the tommy kind of end up looking like Downton’s William?

Photos of Vicky Butterfly’s Anita Berber performance inspired me to draw the dancer, and Vicky’s incarnation of her. As well as some disembodied heads. What’s with me and Aryans in eyepatches.

Sketches from the last couple of days. I don’t know what my friend Iris and Basmanov are doing on the same page, but I am guessing the world better watch out.

post-punk and lostsplendor - Gay’s Weimar Culture is every bit as brilliant as I anticipated and you said. So the above is at least partially your fault. You should both go up to your rooms now and think about what you’ve done.
