Just finished my third re-read of Diana Wynne Jones’ Hexwood. After copious notes, and much skipping back to refer to my bookmarks, i think i finally understood all of it this time! Next stop: Fire and Hemlock for a fifth read!
Oh, I can relate to this! — sdn
I feel rather guilty posting this as fanart, seeing that I just copied out a photo and made alterations to it to fit the character I had in mind- it’s a bit like photomanip, except without the… the technical part that I suck at. Anyway, this is Tacroy, based on this photo of Riz Ahmed- not quite right, because Tacroy is supposed to be round-faced and Riz Ahmed has a relatively skinny face. (But he had a sort of look to him that was reminiscent of the Tacroy in my head!) First one is the photo of the drawing irl, second one is the digital drawing based off the first. c:
A wonderful collage picture of DWJ based upon this photo.
“After Chrestomanci, I wanted MORE. Who was this Diana Wynne Jones and what else did she have to offer? Turns out, a lot: she’s written a ton of books and I can’t begin to express how ecstatic I was. I immediately dove into her Derkholm series (GRIFFINS, people!) and the rest is history. I was in love.”
“If you like mythology, or DWJ’s weirder books, you definitely need to check this one out.”
