I was commissioned by Jennifer L. Armentrout and her team to draw some artwork for her sexy young adult novel "Obsidian"!  Soooo excited!!!  I've posted the first piece already, titled "Push/Pull" here:

Push/Pull...Obsidian by kara-lija

I'm doing more pieces, but they'll be secret until Jennifer's book signing tour, at which my artwork will be handed out to all the lovely readers as a gift!  How cool is that?  

Hopefully I'll be able to make it to the Georgia signing to autograph said artwork cards being handed out!

So it marks the first professional commission I've received, and I'm so stoked!

Go read her books NOW.  Super sexy, snarky and well-written, "Obsidian" is the first book in The Lux Series.  The second book is called "Onyx" and it comes out in August.

Here's some links to fandom stuff:

I must as this....
You noted me before about you sending me an email, yet I have not gotten this email. I would copy and paste the message, but part of the message was you asking me not to tell others what you were sending me.
