Small God Adventures

Ayta – The Small God of Sidelong Glances

#28 • Drawn at the Minneapolis Airport

So far the Small Gods are doing everything I want them to (speed painting/life drawing/mixed media/different styles/communication with those readers of my blog and those precious few that FB allows to see them), and much besides.

Last night Venetia created a database so that I don’t repeat myself in names, spheres of influence etc. It’s weird to see unsuspected coincidences and biases (Ayta is my third black woman who is seen in profile. Wha?).

It’s been especially wonderful to read the comments from people and see that many of them are keeping their eyes open for both weird layered humor and simple delight.

I donated 5 of the handmade versions to the NADW Charity Auction and was startled by the positive reaction to the Small God of Psychic Cowboys. They can’t all be winners, but if he can find an audience I hope to stretch the bounds of credulity still further in future.

After a few days at home, it’s back on the road to the SanDiego ComicCon and more handmade Small Gods….

Thanks for your kind thoughts and sharing the love!

And now, the second week of Small Gods:
