Introducing Charli Vince, Illustrator

Introducing Charli Vince, Illustrator

 

Today I’d love to share with you all a little Q&A I had with Charli Vince.

Name sound familiar? It should, she’s the very talented artist who drew the cover for Strange Matters!

Charli kindly answered a few questions for me about her work. She clearly did a great job on my cover and she has a host of other fine work on display on her website, at www.charlivince.com. Now that Strange Matters is in print and her art is being shipped all over the place, I thought it time to let others know more about her. This is Charli in her words:

“I’m a Norwich (UK) based illustrator with a love and fascination for the animal kingdom, intrigue, and colour. If I’m not at my desk doodling myself into a coma, I can be found drawing people in Norwich city, gawping at other people’s dogs, or getting punching stuff at Kung-Fu training (of which I am a black belt, not to brag or anything).”

Something strange this way comes. My short story collection, mentioned so many times in so many little asides, is finished at last!

Yes, really! Now entitled ‘Strange Matters’, twenty of my stories and poems are all in one place and ready to be read. You can see a teaser of the cover above.

A big one this time folks, because it’s the end of Act One!

 

Obie took her hand and pulled gently. Kate allowed him to guide her.

They avoided the streets for a while but finally emerged at a crossroads. Kate had no idea where she was, except that it was far from the IT offices she worked in. She saw a lot of tightly clustered flats and run-down shops, some of which had signs in a language she didn’t recognise.
