I’ve had this idea kicking around to put together some designs based on my World of Lasniniar series. I thought it would be fun to create shirts, journals, and other stuff with Barlo or Iarion on them.
While I was waiting to get my manuscript for Storm Rider back from the proofreader, I started sketching and fiddling around with Photoshop, came up with a few starting designs, and created an online shop. Here’s what I have so far:
Iarion and Barlo
The tagline I decided on for Iarion and Barlo was ‘Keep calm; adventure on.’ I also created both Light Elf and Shadow Elf versions of the Iarion design. And of course, I just had to create a Barlo stein and an Iarion flask.
The Quenya Tree
For this one, I drew an outline of the massive tree that houses the Quenya and filled it with a related excerpt from Soul Seeker.
I wanted to come up with some kind of symbol to represent the series. I liked the idea of a circle to symbolize the cycle of rebirth. I was doodling a vine circle, and realized if I positioned the trailing end a certain way, it would also look like a ‘Q’ for Quenya. (Win!)
So far, I’ve only created a Ralvaniar map design. I have plans to add a Lasniniar map design as well, but this probably won’t be until I put out Wave Runners (the planned sequel to Storm Rider), since I will be adding another two new areas to Lasniniar for that book. By then, I should have a more complete map shape to work with.
That’s it for now. I might add more designs going forward, but I’m not sure yet. Tribe members also have access to a sister shop that carries Tribe merchandise and the occasional planned sale of items from my main Lasniniar shop.
If you’re checking out either shop, and have an idea or request for a design or item you would like to see, let me know!
