The Strangely Beautiful Animation of Miss Percy Parker

So the neatest thing happened today.

I'd been corresponding with a kind and lovely reader asking questions about Miss Percy and Professor Alexi Rychman of my Strangely Beautiful series, particularly the ballroom scene in The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker (one of my very favourite scenes). She said she was using it for a school project. Excited that I should be a part of an academic excercise, I was happy to oblige. What she's working on? Well here's just a few pieces of her animation project in progress! Ladies and Gentlemen, may I introduce Grace Whitley, aka ( Gureitsu via Deviant Art ) and her awesome stylings of Miss Percy and Alexi. What a way to make an author's day!

Huge thanks to Ms. Whitley for this superb treat. It's such an honour when an author gets to see her beloved characters as inspired through the eyes of a new format (and for it to be so spot-on is another delight). Please visit her Deviant Art site!

Wow, these look fantastic, so beautiful! Congratulations Leanna! :-D I canb't even imagine how seeing your novel come to life in a cartoon must be like! :-D Percy and Alexi look fantastic :-)

Wow Grace, amazing job you did! Thank you for sharing your creations with us!

Love the young dashing side as well as the arrogance portrayed in Alexi's posture and really like the image of Percy in glasses with her hair braided :-D
