The "Brit a Day" series

What does a months-long parade of attractive British men have to do with fiction, you might well ask? These gentlemen have inspired some lovely scenes, part of the life I live in my head. Over time, some of these scenes reach out to one another and begin to form a story. For the present, each one of these pictures provides a writing prompt for me, a way to keep me writing with a sense of passion and narrative, even when the stories are not yet fully formed.

A Brit a Day [#119]

I've had this portrait of Eddie in my Brit file for a long time. The artist's signature is Superman. I can't remember if Eddie credited it in his blog to a specific person. At any rate, it's fabulous, that's Eddie's posture through and through.

And I don't think this piece below qualifies as fan art, but it does if 'The New Yorker' magazine is considered a fan. I think this is huge, being illustrated in the goings-on-about-town section of 'The New Yorker'--I'm so happy for Eddie and Dyan.
And finally, I couldn't leave this one out--even though it is not fan art of Eddie, it's literally a portrait of the artist's cat, named for the human Eddie Argos. I love the paw poised over the keyboard, ready to write some amazing lyrics.
