Tomorrow, on the first day of June, I will post my first fairy for the June Fae art challenge. Theoretically, fairy sketches will be posted on my site and several of my favorite social media pages each day of the month.
This year I will be focusing on the Faeries of my own baby Otherwhere, the world of the Other Side of the Wood. There will be a few quick words of background about each fairy as I post them, but just a few. Each Friday of the month, though, I will write a longer post about one of the week's fairies for my Patreon page. Will it be a scholarly article by a goblin academic who studied the faeriscite plague too closely? A poignant yet uplifting tale of a boy and his secret pet Fae? A day in the life of a faerie swarm? I dunno - I will let my pencil tell me about the fairy, and the fairy will tell me its story, and then I'll tell you. Eventually we'll both know.
Faeries and faeriscites first emerged in my 2015 sketchbook "The Other Side of the Wood,"but you can learn more about them in this general-access post from my Patreon Page; https://www.patreon.com/posts/on-faeries-and-18827366
Cheers! It's going to be a quick-paced, demanding month! Let's do good things with it! Check back here often to see how the fairies are progressing!
