My Bio
Well, let's see. I'm a painter and children's book author, I live in North Carolina, and...uh...just go look at the art. The art will tell you everything you need to know, and a lot of things you probably didn't.

I'm the author/illustrator of the Eisner-nominated webcomic Digger and the children's books "Nurk" and "Dragonbreath" from Harcourt-Brace and Penguin Dial, all of which can be purchased through Amazon (visit www.ursulavernon.com for direct links.)

Almost all art shown here can be purchased in print form at www.redwombatstudio.com www.redwombatstudio.com/ or by dropping me a note or an e-mail.

I am not accepting commissions at this time, and will not be for the foreseeable future.

The Raven And The Reindeer

The Raven And The Reindeer

"Do you have a name?” asked Gerta. “I do,” said the raven. Gerta waited. The raven fluffed its beard. “I am the Sound of Mouse Bones Crunching Under the Hooves of God.” Gerta blinked a few times. “That’s…quite a name.” “I made it myself,” said the raven, preening. “I stole the very shiniest words and hoarded them all up until they made something worth having. ‘Sound’ and 'God’ were particularly well-guarded. 'Crunching’ I found in a squirrel nest, though." —   The Raven & The Reindeer, T. Kingfisher My new book is out today! It&

Just wanted to let you know, I've been thoroughly enjoying "Elf vs Orc" and I hope one day you continue it.  Funniest fantasy story I've read since Terry Pratchett.

I really like all your "weird fruit" :)
Hello! I'm a huge fan of your stories and Digger, which I recommend to everybody. Could I ask if you could repost your old Gearworld stories here, complete with illustrations?
