Does this count as fan art if I drew it? LOL I have no idea. Here’s a quick doodle of Zaria Fierce walking on the scrollwork bridge:

A little while ago I shared Eoghan Kerrigan’s Zaria Fierce. Here she is again, but this time with her nemesis Olaf, the river-troll. Just what is he after?
Isn’t Eoghan’s work stunning? I love it!
I love fan art so when Michele Carpenter, the narrator for Zaria Fierce and the Secret of Gloomwood Forest, told me that she created a few pieces I was super excited. I present to you for your viewing pleasure a drawing of Zaria Fierce and the river-troll, Olaf.
I don’t know about you, but Olaf is adorable and I would love him as a stuffed animal. 🙂
Isn’t she gorgeous? I love her!
A: I was looking for troll art on Google Image Search. It started with John Bauer and then I thought I saw someone emulate his style on Deviant Art.
When I got to Deviant Art I did not find the piece that I remembered, but I did find a few artists that I liked better with their own drawing styles. From there, I scoured multiple profile pages, Etsy accounts, blogs, personal websites, Facebook, and more to learn more about these artists and their work.
Then I reached out to the few I liked best to see if they were open about commission work. Of the artists I reached out to I really hoped Eoghan Kerrigan would be interested in working with me. He was! And I am so thrilled with every sketch he’s shared with me. It’s so much fun to see the book come alive. I am truly grateful to have such a talented artist illustrate my book.
