Why this piece is awesome: I really love the Educated Rodents, and these illustrations of Dangerous Beans, Peaches, and Darktan are small and adorable, and suit them well. They look so happy, like they've just had good stomach rubs. The ink lines for their fur, whiskers, and tails are very stylized, and remind me of Tarot illustrations.

Why this piece is awesome: I love the swirl of the snow and the eerily menacing way the Wintersmith is formed-yet-unformed, in the same way in the book he tries to be human but doesn't succeed. It's a very cold-looking picture that I think does a good job of catching the diffuse way light looks on snow. And menacing, did I mention the menace?

Why this piece is awesome: I love the colors in this picture, the brown/beige gingham and the orange-y black. It looks warm and engaging. The faces are stylized and comic, giving Maurice a wonderfully crotchety expression, and reminding me of a coat of arms (Malicia and Keith frame it as darkness and light, respectively). It would make a great book cover.

Why this piece is awesome: I adore the book trilogy, and this picture does a fabulous job of capturing the spirit of the novels. The characters are in silhouette, black against a backdrop that looks like sunset. I love how [deviantart.com profile] monotogne captures the characters through their pose and posture, but leaves their faces up to the reader's imagination. The books are lighthearted and funny with a poignant undercurrent of darkness, and the coloring of the picture, with their shadows merging into the rising darkness, really captures that.
