October Giveaway: Quoth the Raven

I didn't get this month's giveaway up right away, because I was trying to decide what the prize should be. But now I've decided.



The winner gets:
  • A matching set of "Quoth the Raven" and "Nevermore" lithographs. Before you get too excited, these are proofs on Mayfair paper, not final prints on heavy rag, so they're not as archival, though they still look nice. I'd love to give away a set of editioned prints, but I only have three sets, and they're all earmarked for an artist's book. They're about 8 by 10.5 inches.
  • An ebook copy of a Nic Silver spooky Hallowe'en story I haven't written yet. It may be called "A Pearl Beyond Price." Or it might not.
  • Some other little goodies that may or may not include letterpress postcards, magnets with art on, little books, etc.
So leave a comment and get your name in. You have until Hallowe'en, but don't leave it too late.

Also, there's a new coupon code for a free short story on my Facebook page. This time it's "Sealskin," a selkie story.

Absolutely love this set! Archival or not, the white raven is amazing :)

Love it! I would take this over last months drawing for sure! They look fantastic and may just end up as a tattoo. Been trying to decide what next to get and those fit the bill.

Oh yeah, raven tattoos! I have one, and I've been wanting to get another one for ages.

Love that the ravens are holding the pens in the anatomically correct position for their feet/claws. Each new piece of yours I see reminds me how much I appreciate the attention to detail!

i was hoping you'd pick these! yay!

oh, and i'm still waiting for the artist's book to come out.

Jade, if you only knew how many artist's books I have in-progress . . . The one with the ravens is assembled, but needs to be bound and I want it to be spectacular. It will be called _A Love-Letter to E.A. Poe_ and is as all prints of ravens. Also, I can't decide if I should include text.

Niko said...

Waiting4Thunder: I'm glad you noticed! I worked hard on just that detail.

I simply adore 'nevermore' :) can't wait to see them in a book

In slightly related news, new film "Raven" will be coming out soonish. It portrays the last few days of EAP's life where he attempts to solve a murder or some such related subject.

In news related a bit closer, I would love to see about petitioning your brilliance for a tattoo design. ;) I have a $200 gift card to my favorite parlour burning a hole in my wallet and have found a brilliant artist. Seems, serendipitous.

Ooh, I could add "tattoo designer" to my resume! Cool. DM me on Twitter with your email if you want.
