The Fishnets Pose

There I was, working on the fundraiser and talking to donors about what pose to do next. When author Allison Pang pops up on Twitter and says that if I do the cover for her book A Brush of Darkness, she’ll send me the fishnets. She even offered to pre-tear them for me!

Around the same time, two different people requested that I do–you guessed it–A Brush of Darkness.

How could I refuse?

My thanks to Allison for bringing something truly special to this cover pose, and for just generally being a fun human being.

This wasn’t the most painful pose I’ve done, though it wasn’t entirely comfortable. But I think it highlights that we haven’t moved beyond the chainmail bikini mentality as much as we’d like to think; we’ve just modernized it.
