Lilith is her Ancient name...
I saw her many times,
within the shadows,
I listened her lullaby
and sweet words
but tried to avoid her,
until the night when
She spoke to me in dreams,
the snake pierced my skin while she took my hand,
smiling she said to me 'you won't die',
you are now my child,
you will live in my realm,
baptized with her crimson kiss,
my fate was sealed,
Mother of the fallen,
Lilith is her Ancient name,
Proud daughter without regret,
my soul belongs to her,
fearless at Lilith's Realm,
the cat and the snake protectors given by her,
walk at my side,
Lilith,I have delivered to you
what I am,
The last couple of years brought a lot of steampunk to my professional life. I illustrated the first ever steampunk novel written and published in Lithuanian. Later it became Book of the Year, as voted by the readers. That is, of course, „Vilko valanda“ (Hour of the Wolf) by Andrius Tapinas, that spent 20 weeks in the Top 10 of the best-selling fiction books in Lithuania.
I am working on the second one in the series right now, also to be published by Alma Littera.
Also, this month On the Isle of Sound and Wonder by Alyson Grauer will become available on Amazon, published by a young American company Xchyler Publishing.
I'm very happy indeed. This time it features a portrait of my friend Rita:
What else has happened since the last journal? I have illustrated a steampunk novel, and it is kinda the most popular Lithuanian book published in 2013: http://www.vilkovalanda.lt/pradinis-puslapis/
It was also translated to English and electronic version is available in Amazon.com, but without illustrations. Because it is cheaper that way. What do I know about marketing...
Just two favorites of the many pieces done for the book:
And, other news is that my artwork is available as postcards (BTW very inexpensive) at the Favorite Postcard, which makes me very glad too
