Today, we’re featuring our third interior artist for I Didn’t Break the Lamp: Historical Accounts of Imaginary Acquaintances, Leigh Legler. Leigh was an artist who came to us on a recommendation from another artist, and we’ve been in love with their work ever since the very first piece they provided us. Notable among their covers have been that for our very first anthology, That Ain’t Right, which began life (like much of their art) as a painting. They’re also the artist behind the Autumn 2017 Mad Scientist Journal cover, which causes great delight when we sell our books in person! And their joy when we told them the theme for the upcoming anthology was infectious, so we know they’re going to produce something equal parts cute and creepy!
Here are a handful of our favorite pieces from Leigh!
“Missed Connections: Creature Seeking Creator” by Julia K. Patt
“Excerpts from the Diary of Theodore Miro, Competitor on CryptoChefs Season 2” by Zach Bartlett
“The Heart’s Engine” by R. Scott Shanks, Jr.
“A Taste of Empty” by Dorian Graves
“Diary of a Turnip Girl” by Finale Doshi-Velez
“Mabel’s Mission” by K. Esta (pictured)
