Sassy magic!  
I had the great pleasure to work with story_monger, whose writing is chock full of magical realism and real Gaiman-esque imagination. The story explores Sam's POV through a sort-of case!fic that is slightly canon-deviant but TOTALLY in-character for early-seasons Sam. Castiel and Crowley are pitch-perfect--I can hear their voices in my mind with each line of dialogue--and the land of Carterhaugh is both fantastical and deceptively ominous. Treat yourself, and READ IT! :D

Carterhaugh, by story_monger

Digital, obviously. (Lens flare, for the win!) Click images to enlarge. The art truly does NOT do the story's imagery justice. I was swept up in Carterhaugh, and partially afraid I couldn't execute what I saw in my mind's eye! Read the fic, and you'll know what I mean...

Wow, thank goodness for spnnewsletter! LJ's failure to send notifications nearly meant I missed this...
I'm not a huge Sassy fan but your art (and your rec) is tempting me, dammit. Love how young Sammy looks in the lush bright green pic - that one reminds me of Sprited Away.

Between holiday fracas and LJ acting up, I'm surprise I got it posted at all!

The fic isn't, like, hardcore Sassy...it's more a, hmmm, fairy tale kind-of vibe? I think you'll really enjoy the world building. The description in the story is really lovely.

Thanks, amb!

Peaceful would be nice, yes indeedy! lol! I'm gonna sit down and use some of the arty supplies I've been given over the last month. Thinking of illustrating me some Fantastic Beasts as Jared and Jensen ;) what do we think of Crowley being a Niffler?

Beautiful art!!! I love that expression that you captured on Sam's face, and the look in his eyes - it's magical and haunting. And the beautiful composition of the bottom piece with the lens glare, and that luscious green grass and the feel of the breeze in Cas's coat.

Wonderfully done in every way! Take care my lovely ♥

I've just finished this wonderful, magical story and your art is perfect for it, I love the banner and the way Cas's raincoat is flapping in the breeze in the lst pic. Sam's face is so beautiful I want to kiss his lips and take that frown away!
