Oh, look! Art!

12167990_10100761614640850_64966647_nAs if it wasn’t big enough news that this website is now live, I’m excited to share more news that you might not yet have noticed: the Wyvern Gallery is live!

The gallery – which, aside from the sidebar, you can find by clicking here – is an ongoing collection of publicly-released artwork by our illustrator Toby Medeiros that may eventually be part of Wyvern itself or the materials we release.

But that isn’t the only art I’m here to talk about. Take a look, if you would, at this:


In case you are wondering, yes: that is, indeed, a Biceratops.

I’m sorry, but this and the story behind it are just about the coolest thing ever.

A couple of days ago, a proud mama bear sent me this link, along with this message:

“My 12-year old daughter loves art. She recently produced this series of t-shirts to raise money for her local LGBTQ organization. She has a show of her original drawings coming up at a local art gallery in a couple of weeks. Oh, and she’s trans.”

This is amazing. Isn’t this amazing? It’s totally amazing. And this talented young lady has completed several artistic renderings of LGBTQ dinosaurs, including the Lesbo-saurus-rex, the Icthy-ally-don, or my personal favourite, the Bron-2-spirit.

It’s girls like this fantastic young artist whom I hope will connect with Wyvern (totally gonna send her a free copy when it’s published), but in the meantime, I am so getting myself a shirt. Julianna, and her proud mamma, you keep dino-rockin’.

And everyone else, remember to subscribe to get more news and updates as they come! There’s a button to the left, over thataway.

It’s Ali-i-i-ive!

coinliddleAfter a whole whallop of work and late nights, I am extremely pleased to report – as you may right now be seeing – that this website is worthy of being seen by everyone else! Special thanks to Brian Kremen for kicking my butt into gear, and as always, Toby Medeiros for his graphic design brilliance.

Still to come: there will be a gallery with sneak peeks at new and in-progress artwork for the book – character sketches, scenery, you name it!

We are also in the process of compiling a list of several trans-identified creators including artists, writers, filmmakers – pretty much anything – in the hopes of promoting their work here as well, so watch for that section to pop up very soon!

And finally, we hope that the KickStarter campaign will begin by November, and through that we hope to raise enough money to make Wyvern a published reality. We’ll keep our fingers crossed, but we are deeply grateful for the support!

For now, feel free to pop over to Facebook to get a look at the latest artwork sneak peek, and keep your eyes open for news over the next while.

Peace and sugar!

A Review of Wyvern by Virginia Erum

coinliddleI had the pleasure of meeting Virginia last school year through her daughter Brianna, who was a student in my class. She heard about Wyvern through her daughter, and asked me if she could read it. She also kindly accepted my request for a review and provided a very flattering one, which I have shared below.

“I was hooked on this book as soon as I read the words “I have never met a creature as strange as a wyvern.” This prepared me for a story that wasn’t just something to read, but an enchanting memory that I had the honour of experiencing. Sure enough, I was not disappointed. Continue reading A Review of Wyvern by Virginia Erum
