The GU Fanart Section is Go!

Thursday, December 18th, 2008

Well, a month ago, I didn’t have any fanart to my name for The Glass Urchin, and now I have three pieces! Hopefully will be getting more too.

Shown here on the left is an amazingly detailed piece by RedCoatCat through a Secret Santa fanart exchange on the Tomgeeks Forum. She claims she’s never drawn a hedgehog before, but she sure did get down their awkward bodies and tiny paws very well. Thanks so much Red! RedCoatCat also does an amazing retelling of the American War of Independence on Loyalty & Liberty. All the characters are historically accurate and are depicted beautifully in feline form, please check it out.

And if YOU have any fanart for me, no matter how big or small, I’d love to hear from you! Drop me a line here: auilix (at)

Thanks to The System!

Alternately, God could be a 'Chicks before Dicks' kinda gal...Just want to give thanks to Rosscott, over at The System, for giving The Glass Urchin some nice props in his Quick Quomic Quorner section! Don’t worry Ross, I don’t pretend to like your comic, I really do like it! Please check out The System if you have time – He updates very frequently with witty and interesting comics about life. The System also has a nice and sleek minimalist look to it, and even though the characters have bathroom-sign-esque bodies with circles for heads, you can really feel the anger, happiness, or disappointment (like when Ross discovers he’s been spelling stationary wrong for the past 20 years… As we’ve seen before, I can relate…). Check out one of my faves, the big 100, here.
