Created as an accompanying illustration for Nitra Wisdom's story 'Purple Wings' in Hidden Youth: Speculative Fiction from the Margins of History. It's a speculative fiction anthology about marginalized youth across history, published by Crossed Genres.
I enjoyed the story very much, and am glad to have had the chance to be part of this anthology, alongside many wonderful writers and artists.
Head over to http://crossedgenres.com/titles/hidden-youth/ to grab a print or ebook copy; here's the blurb:
"In 1862, a teenaged engineer fights murderous traitors with steam-powered war machines for the sake of the Union. In 1750 Poland, a police officer picks a fight with the wrong bagel vendor. In 1874, a young clerk investigating the use of Chinese laborers in Cuba finds herself working for the dead as much as for the living.
The sequel to the World Fantasy and Locus Award-nominated anthology Long Hidden, Hidden Youth focuses on children: underage protagonists marginalized in their time. 22 excellent stories ranging across nearly 2,400 years and spanning the globe, Hidden Youth reveals the stories of young people whose lives have been pushed to the margins of history."
