With all this talk of dwarves about, I thought it would be fun to introduce Kollinar; the Dwarven companion of Aeslin in The Avalon Chronicles. ^_^
Dwarves in the world of Avalon are not all that much like the stories would have us believe. In fact, most of what we know of the Dwarves - thanks to tomes like that of scribe Will Redding and his Father - has actually been filtered down from ancient Elven…well, let’s call it propaganda, shall we?
For, once there was a mighty race. Proud, wise and strong. But the arrival of humankind caused a rift that would never quite be mended. And while half of this noble race took to the trees where they could watch over the world’s changes from a position of military advantage, the other half stayed close to the ground where they could nurture the new arrivals… not to mention set up profitable trade routes.
And so were born the Elves (the high) and the Dwarves (the low). It’s a pity for the Dwarves that the Elves were the first to think of contacting human scribes. Perhaps, if things had gone differently, the stories of short, dumpy elves with bells on their hats might have got better coverage.
Reblog this post and get the truth about the Dwarves of Avalon out there! ;)
(Book one of the Avalon Chronicles is out now from all good book shops and also on Comixology. Book two will be released later this year. Story by Nunzio DeFilippis, Christina Weir and myself. Script by Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir. Art by me, with Nana Li on screentone. ^_^)
Kevin Champeny created this awesome Candelier.
Created for Jellio, the Candelier is was made using just over 3000 hand cast acrylic GummiBears. “At 18” diameter, it creates quite a focal point in any room it is installed in.”
Olga of OlechckaDesign created this adorable Nyan Cat Internet Meme Necklace that celebrates the cute little kitty with a Pop-Tart body who endlessly flies through space to the tune of an infectious J-pop song leaving a cheerful rainbow in its wake.
The handmade charm was created using Sculpey (polymer clay) and hangs from a 12-inch silver chain. It’s currently available for purchase via Olga’s Etsy shop, OlechckaDesign.

This incredibly lifelike little unicorn, who looks ready to scamper, cavort, and make all of your dreams come true, is a sculpture, entitled Aura, created by R. Wake, an artist who goes by the name Indigo-Ocean on DeviantArt.
Aura stands 12” tall and was made using copper tube, aluminium and steel wire armature, Padico Premier stoneware clay, taxidermy glass eyes, recycled mohair, rayon flocking, silicone ears/facial features, resin, and polymer clay.
We can’t look away. We know this is just a photo and that the photo is of a sculpture, but we can’t shake the feeling that this awesome unicorn is about to blink.
