Zita Fan Art

I wanted to pop in today to share this fantastic bit of Zita fan art I found the other day:

The above was drawn by artist Mark Lewis and it’s a fun take on the idea of “world hopping.”

I always really enjoyed seeing other people’s take on the character and I’m interested to see if more fan art will start cropping up. Zita used to get a fair amount of fan art back in the old webcomics days, like this piece from my ol' palMike Maihack:

...and this one from Mario Boon

Will more fan art start cropping up now that the book is out in the wide world? I hope so. If it does I’ll try to post it here from time to time...

Great stuff. I recently got my copy of Zita and can't wait to read it.

Mark Lewis said...

I'm very flattered to be part of this. Looks like I'm in good company! Like I said in the Zita post on my site, I liked the book a whole bunch. I hope you have more Zita for us in the future.

Ben Hatke, I have always loved you and your wife! You have given me a great path to follow. I hope I can be as free-spirited as you two have been.

I just bought Zita from my local bookstore just this morning and I've read it three times so far. It is a wonderful piece of work and I'm already writing a 'shelf talker' for it.

It also makes me want to do my own Zita fan-art. Fan-art is a bit intimidating, though, especially if it's an artist you like.

Thanks, Ben!

Arkonbey, thanks! I'm excited to hear about the different bookstores carrying Zita -and that you liked it enough o write a little something about it.

Don't be intimidated by fan art!

And you! Diatribest! I think that beautiful mossy path in your profile picture is the one you should follow... Bring a sword.
