Merry Christmas 2022

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I hope you’re having a wonderful day with family, friends, and/or an awesome chill day pampering yourself! This is just a short post with my Christmas present for you. <3 This year, I have two digital wallpapers that you can download and use on your phone, tablet, computer, etc.

First, and perfectly holiday themed, are my two favorite shapeshifters getting into trouble…

The second wallpaper was more of a challenge. For anyone who follows me on Instagram, you’ll know that I often struggle to portray faces as well as I’d like. And for some reason, my artist-muse really wanted to draw Echo, the Lord of Dragons and my second-favorite fae from The Guild Codex: Unveiled. More specifically, his face… which Tori describes as “beautifully androgynous”. Not difficult at all…

I gave it my very best shot, and I think it actually turned out pretty well? I’d love to know if he matches your vision of his character.

For my wonderful subscribers on Patreon, you can keep the Christmas mood going with December’s short story, “Operation Mistletoe”, which I just posted as well!

If you missed it, I recently started a Patreon where you can vote on and read an exclusive short story every month! Join now to get December’s Christmas-themed story, plus I’ll send everyone who joins before the end of the month a belated Christmas card version of the Rikr and Shiro artwork I shared above—while I still have cards available. 😀

I’ll be back in January with an update on my plans for 2023, and until then, have a wonderful day and a happy new year. Stay warm!
