As an early holiday gift to my readers, here’s an illustration of my story “Venom in the Cloud Forest” drawn by my very talented friend Sambaran Chatterjee. Sambaran and I first met at orientation for our MBA program, where during a group exercise he dropped a scrap of paper that I swooped down to pick up for him. On it was what he’d call a “doodle,” which to me looked like a frame-ready work of art. Seriously. And not only is he an artist, he’s also a filmmaker.
Without further ado:
Look at the details in the shading! The power dynamics in the characters’ posture!
The story this illustration is based on originally appeared in Myriad Lands: Volume 2: Beyond the Edge and is slated to be reprinted in Pioneers & Pathfinders.
