2 thoughts on “The Ilmar by Mensink

    1. Yeah, I love commissioning art for my fiction. Images get burned into my brain, and no matter how hard I try, words alone will not suffice. Mensink, my artist from the Netherlands, did a superb job capturing the Ilmar. I have described Xandr and Thelana as having “skin for armor”—as though they are more powerful wearing nothing but sky. As for their abs, well—I haven taken inspiration from the heroic nude of Classical antiquity. Story wise, if you have to fight for every meal, you’re not going to look like your typical American couch potato.
