"Faerietank" - a painting by Bryan Beus

“Faerietank” (2013) by Bryan Beus.

This site is a place to share a conversation on life and the world around us. A few favorite topics and mediums you’ll find include whimsical fantasy art, graphic novels, cinema, and more; mythology and religion; observations on our world as it is today; and the meditative arts.

Presently, in my personal work I am finishing off an illustrated novel, which I wrote and will illustrate. Shadow Mountain Publishing is planning on publishing it in the early autumn of 2015.

To keep up to date on my graphic novels and share in the conversation you can: follow my blog feed, ‘Like’ my facebook page and follow me on twitter.

Of note: Last year purely for fun I wrote and illustrated a graphic novella, “Shortcut to Heaven.” It was a blitz project, done without any rewrites or re-drawings. Whatever came out, came out, and the story moved on. Even though that novella is unaffiliated with my publisher, and though I tried to make it clear that Shortcut is simply a personal project, it is still naturally assuming the incorrect role in the public’s mind. People are coming to me in the grocery market saying, “Hey! I saw that Shortcut novella that you’ve been working on for the last four years. Excited to read the whole thing!” I truly appreciate their kindness and support, and I completely understand how they made the connection; people are busy and don’t have time to keep track. I would probably make the same mistake. To mitigate the confusion, as of June 15th I have no plans of actually making the novella available on my website as it would only further confuse everyone. As soon as I find a solution I will post the novella here. In the meantime, I sometimes have it for sale at events and conventions. Thanks!
