Have you met Chuck Wendig? Well this is a picture of him, but usually he is attached to a body. He looks a bit bereft which is not a good description of him. In fact over at his hilarious, irreverent and twisted blog, Terrible Minds, he has a lot to say.
Chuck has taught me so much about writing, blogging, and publishing. I’ve even learned some new colorful cuss words. WARNING: He doesn’t pull any punches in fact he aims for your gut, so be ready.
This guy is brilliant. If it sounds like I am sucking up, I’m not. But he is running a contest. His open call for fan art is just in time for the release of his new novel Mockingbird and this is what I came up with. I played around with Microsoft Paint for the first time and had a blast mashing, drawing and painting. Who knew computers could be so much fun?
This piece of art needs a caption and here are some of mine:
It was a load off Chuck’s mind…
A moon with a view
“You can put me down now…”
Even with a head start, Chuck still felt he was beneath him.
Chuck became tired of head games
Don’t Ever Mock a Mockingbird
“I said, ‘Fly away, be free!’ Not ‘with me!'”
After a wild night of partying, Chuck was glad he had a ride home.
