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!
