On Thursday 6-9, I’m going to support Bones of Starlight’s hardcover art painter Leo Shallat at a new gallery opening at Art Primo, a supply store for his medium in Capitol Hill. Join us to experience what stunning newness there may be In Store. If you’re not going out, view or support via https://www.leoshallat.com/ , and as always the science fiction fantasy books featuring his artwork on the cover are obtainable from wherever you like to procure new books in distribution.
At the top of this website is featured a portion of the updated cover art for Bones of Starlight 3: Greater Beyond. The painting is titled “Golden Hour”, by Leo Shallat (Seattle-based international muralist & gallery exhibitor).
This is Bones of Starlight hardcover artist Leo Shallat (at his studio sale in Seattle continuing this weekend), sitting next to a print of the art that will feature on Book 3: Greater Beyond. Painting titled, Golden Hour. This switchup hits the right tone, and I’m greatly pleased about it! It’s also a wonderful experience to see this painter pushing his art to new levels over the years, now.
Posting from Untitled, a 2-day multi-artist gallery pop-up event in Seattle, co-featuring Leo Shallat, whose painting “Golden Compass” (as shown atop this page) will appear on the cover of the next outcoming release from Primal Spiral – Bones of Starlight: Fire Within, the hardcover re-issue of the first volume of the trilogy, previously titled Fire On All Sides. This event will continue through tomorrow Saturday, with plenty of art for the feasting of the eyes, music, and all-around merriment. Here’s the Facebook listing and the Eventbrite listing.
BONES OF STARLIGHT 1: FIRE WITHIN
AVAILABLE AUGUST 11
This past weekend I met with two excellent fellows in entertainment who each received copies of Bones of Starlight 1 – actor Tom Hiddleston, and director Kevin Smith! A genuine pleasure. With Tom, I’m wearing my author photo jacket (my ‘trail blazer’). I came to see Kevin in my borrowed Locus Awards hawaiian shirt, which is also where the flower lei came from. In the space where he’s holding his arm out, that’s where you can imagine YOURSELF in the picture.
The Locus Awards was a splendid and jolly affair, and was also the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Locus Magazine, a stalwart of science fiction & fantasy critical review.
Out and about in Seattle, I discovered an artwork location of Bones of Starlight cover artist Leo Shallat, and came out (again, as poly-pan-sexual) to celebrate with the Pride Parade.
