Man, you know every generation thinks they had it great, and I’m not gonna pretend we didn’t have terrible things (I mean, look at any yearbook photo) and we didn’t have awesome things (all I have to say is “Zoom, zoom, zoom”), but something we most definitely had, was representation. We were major characters on shows and in movies, not regulated to an entertainment ghetto or completely ignored. Growing up, you could see yourself on “Ghostwriter,” “All That,” and “California Dreams.” We were saving the world from aliens, dancing in Mickey Mouse ears, telling horror stories around campfires, you name it!
So this image I commissioned from the always fantastic autumn-sacura, in tribute not just to the phenomenal actors pictured here (the late Thuy Trang, the charming Mario Lopez, the vocal bible Brandy Norwood, and the guy-who-probably-starred-in-something-you-love Mr. Dante Basco), nor the army of unsung performers who showed up on our screens repping us, our cousins, our friends, our crushes. This image is a tribute to US, for being varied, for being awesome, for representing OURSELVES just by leaving our house in the morning, proud of our skin, our background, our hair, and the things that make us US.
Just a reminder…#REPRESENTATIONMATTERS because the world needs to see all of the beauty we bring. So if you are a creator, remember how if felt when you saw someone had hair like you, lips like you, a story like you, and pass that on to someone else. Bring that beauty to those who will read your words, watch your vision, and step into your world. It makes the world we eventually step back into that much more vibrant.

Time out of Time Book1 Cover

Victo Ngai

Time out of time

the horned man rides

with the forest queen

the greenman Dies.

the Heavens bear witness

the great wolf Flies, and TImothy Hames stands alone. 

I have been working on a new book series called Time out of Time by Maureen Doyle McQuerry. Book 1 Beyond the Door has just come out!

Time out of Time is an advantage and imagination packed fantasy story which draw inspiration from Celtic mythologies. Our hero is a shy bookish boy named TImothy who is fairly certain nothing interesting will ever happen to him. However, everything changes on one dark spring night. A mystery knocks on his door and starts revealing his role in an ancient prophecy…

Choosing a moment from a book as cover is always a fun challenge. It has be a true representation of the story without spoiling the plot, while being visually stimulating. I decided to go with the Wild Hunt because:

a) There’s a giant golden flying wolf, who wouldn’t like that?

b) We introduce our main character - Timothy. 

c) The chase set the stage of adventure and the storm set the mood of danger.

d) It’s a perfect moment to show the parallel existence of Timothy’s ordinary world and the fantastical world “beyond the door”. 

This art has been featured on the American Library Association Booklist cover, what a honor! 

Big thanks to Maureen for this great story, Ad Chad Beckerman and Editor Howard Reeves for all the great input. I hope you would enjoy the book as much as I do! Don’t forget to decipher the secret code which comes with the book!
