Jinx in the jungle

Jinx in the jungle.Here’s an illustration I recently completed to go with Kendra Kandlestar and the Search for Arazeen, featuring two fan-favourites: Jinx and Oki.

In this chapter, Kendra and her companions find themselves trudging through a jungle as they try to find their way to the City on the Storm. There are many traps and troubles in such an environment for the small Eens—including mosquitoes. Here’s an excerpt from the book that goes with this illustration . . .

The insects began dive-bombing the Eens in an attempt to satisfy their insatiable appetites.

“I’ll show them who’s the boss!” Jinx declared as a giant mosquito swooped towards her. With a slash of her sword she cut the enormous insect in two, leaving a pulpy mess at her feet.

“That’s disgusting,” Ratchet said. “Besides, how can you kill a bug, Jinx? That could have been your long-lost cousin!”

“Then he should have been more polite,” Jinx snarled.
