Doodle Day 7.30.10

(Click the image to see it bigger)

After looking back at this I sort of feel like I need to find that article that said that Angels will become the new Vampires, and ask the writer for next week's lotto numbers. Seriously.

Today's DD is a compilation of some of the best books I've read this summer (and one that's in the mail). Actually...half of the doodles are of books that aren't even out yet...oops. At least they don't contain any spoilers that would get me in trouble. I hope.

So, starting from Top Left we have:

- A scene from Robin McKinley's Sunshine, recently reprinted with a new cover that I despise but, you haven't read great vampire fiction till you've read Sunshine.
- To it's right is an illustration of a quote featured on Fallen Archangel from Becca Fitzpatrick's Crescendo.
- Back to the left again, sketches of Graves & Dru from Lili St.Crow's Strange Angels.
- Next to them is Aaron in all his angelic greatness from Thomas E Sniegoski's The Fallen.
- Bellow him is a drawing of Bethany and Xavier from Alexandra Adornetto's USA debut, Halo. I'll be reviewing that shortly.
- And lastly we have Wesley and Bianca from Kody Keplinger's The DUFF: (Designated Ugly Fat Friend). This book made me so ridiculously happy, I couldn't stop smiling as I read it.

I know drawings wont get across the same effect that a well written review will, but I hope they still nudge you in the direction of good reading!

These are really good! I can see why you went to that high school :) Do you draw manga?

Thanks Michael :)

I used to, back in middle school, but manga and other forms of cartoons is the first thing they tell you to stop drawing in art school (at least in mine). So now it just feels odd.
