Fanart/Icons/General Tomfoolery [Sep. 26th, 2008|07:58 pm]
The Most Popular Book in the Whole World

First of all, in case you didn't know, there is a Facebook group for this business. Hooray!

Oh, before we get on to the arty stuff, I wanted to let you guys know (if anyone's curious) that the Lulu print version of the book has sold EIGHTEEN COPIES. Probably that doesn't seem like a lot to you, but to me, it is freaking incredible. It's the most I've ever sold of anything I've written, and considering anyone can hop online and read it for free, I think that's pretty cool. Thank you so much to everyone that's bought one! I think they're starting to ship out now...it would sure be awesome to see pictures of you guys with your books...*hint hint*


First of all, mydnight_dreams went mad with creative power and made some amazing Xlormp/Frig art. I love it to pieces. It makes me want a Xlormp of my own (as if I didn't already).

Before you go all "Blergh, Xlormp isn't really that sexy in real life!" I'd like to point out that the artist drew this according to how the characters see each other. Which I find incredible.

She also concocted this book cover:

(Psst...I would love to upload this onto Lulu...did you get my note about the size it needs to be? I feel like a dork butt for not giving that info to you in the first place!)

AND THEN IF THAT WEREN'T ENOUGH, she created some customized clothing just for the hell of it: It's over here. There is Xlormp underwear. If that isn't enough to entice you, I don't know what to do with you.

Next, black_panda_ops took the pictures of the knitted Xlormp, and crafted something pretty amazing:

blindedxxfalcon did some fun icon-based art work:

The rest is here!

indigopelican created cover art inspired by this amazing Twilight comic (not hers, but you should read it anyway because it's AMAZING):

(Same thing applies...I'd love to use this on Lulu, I just need it in the right size! :)

asagi drew my mother's personal favorite art, a portrait of Lou in all his glory:



So here's the deal, I'm going to post teasers, and then links to where you can find the rest. Some of you went crazy on the icon front (WHICH I AM TOTALLY OKAY WITH)!

mydnight_dreams Made some icons based on her art:


The rest are here!

emmafightsevil made a few cute icons based on some quotes (I particularly like the park sign!):

jinx_star made a TON of quote icons:


The rest are in three...different...places.

One of my favorite icons, by scrapbookart:

ladykatyjane shows us what happens when we mix Xlormp icons with purple:

loudlunacy made some Xlomrp icons as well as some Twilight icons, and they are all awesome!


See them all!

Some adorable quote icons from kirra:


And the rest!

Somebody sent an anonymous submission of icons!

bobfredgeorge05 made a few icons:

(The first one came from this thread.)

draconravie made a couple icons:

AND FINALLY, five icons from reira_21:


Thanks again, you guys, for gifting me with such awesome work! I love it all!

I haven't got my copy yet, but when I get the money in the bank, I will be getting two copies! (Otherwise, tomorrow.)
One for me, one for my gf who wants it as soon as possible so we're getting it together.
How's THAT for having fans? Bet I blew your mind. ;) lol

I ordered my copy on Wednesday. I'm so excited!

If I didn't a) have absolutely no access to a camera and b) look like a space alien, I'd totally take a picture.

Darling, when my copy comes, I will take a picture.
Oh, and I'm so totally buying the underwear when I get my next paycheck.
I probably won't take a picture of that.

18 copies! That's awesome! Now to start saving what little money I have, so as I can buy one too! :D

I am rather fond of Lou thinking he is Canadian. Actually, I'm just rather fond of Lou, in general.

I think I just fell in love, fallingly, with all these square icons with words and pictures on them.
Also, I just joined the xlormp facebook group.
Thank you for making my life complete :)

18 copies, WOW!

You know, I added the book to my cart and I gasped at the total price including shipping T-T The shipping is USD19 for me, costs more than the book itself! I'm peeved cause now I'd have to save up more. Le sigh.

18 copies, hooray! I'm going to order mine in the next couple of days, I just haven't gotten around to it yet. I'll take a picture as soon as I order it... and it gets here.

Plus Lou totally thinks he is Canadian and for some reason that makes my spleen leap for joy.

1. Wow, I didn't think I'd be featured first :D
2. I did get your note, unfortunately I have to wait till I get home in order to scan the cover of Twilight because there isn't a big enough picture on the net... But I *will* get you the picture before the end of Sept... which is tomorrow...
3. :D I'm just too happy to say anything else! ALL THE ART IS AWESOME!
