The Boy on the Bridge

I created an illustration used to accompany a story on Fictive Dream, the online fiction magazine. And oops…I neglected to post it on the same day the story came out, as I usually do. My apologies to Fictive Dream and editor Laura Black.

But…that doesn’t mean I can’t catch things up. It’s not too late. I’ll show you the illustration and then I hope you’ll visit Fictive Dream and read the story it goes with.

The story is: The Boy on the Bridge, by Kate Mahony

And here is the picture:

Five Stories for Five Years: It Doesn’t Rain Here Anymore

Fictive Dream, the online magazine devoted to the short story, is celebrating five years of publishing with a special event, Five Stories for Five Years. Editor Laura Black commissioned new stories by several authors from the beginning days of the magazine and they are being presented the week of May 17-21, 2021.

I illustrated each story, and I’ll be showing the art each day during the run of the event, right here.

Today’s story is It Doesn’t Rain Here Anymore, by Francine Witte.

I made two versions for editor Laura Black and she picked one of them to accompany the story. But which one? Go to Fictive Dream, read the story, and find out!

Five Stories for Five Years: Satyagraha and Ernest Jones

Fictive Dream, the online magazine devoted to the short story, is celebrating five years of publishing with a special event, Five Stories for Five Years. Editor Laura Black commissioned new stories by several authors from the beginning days of the magazine and they are being presented the week of May 17-21, 2021.

Today’s story is Satyagraha and Ernest Jones, by Mike Fox.

I made four versions for this story in my intial work, but neither Laura or I were satisfied with the results. I didn’t even show her two of them, I felt they were just not good enough.

Laura sent me additional details of the story and then I created this image, which was exactly right.

Sometimes it just takes time.

Go to Fictive Dream, read the story, and see what you think.
