For the past four weeks, I have been slowly posting a story in my MySpace blog (the blog link seems to be broken but you can reach it via my Myspace page itself) about an entity that I call The Byzantium Outcast. Out of interest for the subject, I went and commissioned an artist to create an illustration of it (see the image there.)

The outcast is a bronze-copper statue that I bought at a yard sale somewhere in Chandler. It took a bit to clean off all of the scabrous green corrosion and centuries of grime, but there are some stains that even TarnX cannot remove. If you are interested in what this has to do with me, Vex Harrow, then I suggest that you visit the story and read up.

The artist who created this image is named Nicole Cardiff and if you want to discuss her work go ahead and visit the artist's thread dedicated to her in the forums.

The image displayed is copyright 2006 © Nicole Cardiff.

I'm very impressed by the depth of the sketch. I definitely think the Greek is a better touch than English at the bottom.... but then again, couldn't a statue that obviously has some magic about it translate the words on it into the native language of the reader?
I, for one, don't know Greek. I think I'd like to keep it that way. If I learn Greek, I fear someone will make me read classics in their original format. I don't even like the Cliff Notes version. =)
Which reminds me... is the sucess of a book marked by a Cliff Notes rendition of the book? If so, how do we get you one? *grin*
