Tenzin the Piggy, by Bevis

Posted by / in Fan Art / 10 comments

Sorry posting this so late! I had an important thesis committee meeting today for my PhD. It… didn’t go that well.

This fan art was made byBevis, a reader on our Russian translation mirror and a forum commenter. It’s a play on a classic Russian meme, “Peter the Piglet“, and I like it :D

In cool local news…

That’s right, my test copies arrived! One for me, Nick, and Seba, with TWO bonus ones… ;)

Keep an eye out for more Kickstarter print run news! I’m hoping to have it running at the start of July, coinciding with us coming back from hiatus!

    Demon Archives on Pulp! Woo-hoo, Now that’s fiction looking good.. :-)

  • Moxie

    Sorry to hear things didn’t turn out satisfactorily. Hopefully maybe you’re being just a bit pessimistic & hypercritical. Strength & courage, faith & luck!

    Oooh Oooh! Can I be a bonus proofreader? PleasePleasePleasePleasePleasePlease? :)

    As a demonstration of my mad nit-picking skills: On the cover, the helmeted Keleres (Cowboy? Or just generic? Underlying image doesn’t let me zoom enough to confirm) is carrying a weapon that looks off – same issue that we noticed when Rick entered Angeline’s lab in Chap 11: the underslung barrel of the grenade launcher catches the eye and makes the weapon look like a 25mm rifle/cannon. (which is probably a good thing to have when fighting Deathbots, but I digress) I think it’s due to the upper barrel narrowing for the last 6-8 cm or so.
    And not much of an outside margin on the left page.

    Now I’ll shut up so you can take my money! :)

    • Heh, I’ll probably end up doing an impersonal raffle or something XD

      In terms of proofreading, it’s all on the website ;P Although I did discover I’d missed a page, so these are super bonus MISPRINT edition books XD

        I’m not surprised, but I figured that asking first (and being the first to ask) wouldn’t hurt. :)

    In the fan art, is that line through the word Minerva supposed to be a slashout? (e.g. like the Ghostbusters logo) Or is that something different with a Russian/European context?

    • My understanding (and @disqus_8XKHAw4roh:disqus can correct me) is that it is a slashout. In the original it says Russia, slashed out, indicating the desire to nope out of the country.

      • Amberlight

        Yep. In Russian roadsigns you’d have a sign with city/town/whatever else’s name at it’s border – clean from outside (“Welcome!”) and slashed out from the inside (“You are leaving this location”).

    I just took a closer look at the photos. Top left page caught my eye and this came to mind…

    Good luck going forward with the Ph.D. … and Pyotr Prase (Peter the Pig) may also be a play on socialist realism and magical realism, all at once.
