About the Book
The genres that encompass the broader category of fantasy are experiencing a powerful resurgence in entertainment and media. From movies, television shows, to books, and video games, the demand for fantasy content has rocketed in the last decade or so. Not anymore is it just for children. Adults are consuming more and more fantasy material. This is where my work comes in. But first, I’d like to express my big thanks to Author’s Lounge for allowing me to have this opportunity to share my work as an author and artist.
When a person thinks about fantasy, what comes to mind? Usually it is images of dragons, dwarves, elves, knights, and various other mythical creatures. We see gorgeous landscapes, grand displays of magic and sorcery, illustrations of wondrous architecture, and lots of fictional lore taught as history. These are what we imagine from the books, movies, and video games we consume. George R.R. Martin, J.K. Rowling, Brandon Sanderson, Robin Hobb, or the classics of JRR Tolkien and C.S. Lewis are some of the biggest names in fantasy today. The vast majority of these fantasy works have two things in common: 1) they’re built off of elements from Western traditions, and 2) They’re all completely fictional.
