The Little Matchgirl
    "Buy a match, sir?"
    The man did not even seem to see her, though the way his steps quickened implied he had heard her. His breath puffed out in the bitterly cold air and hung like icicles before falling. He had a thick woolen coat and cap. If he cared the petite child wore threadbare rags and looked pale as the snow piled around, it did not show.
    Most ignored her. She drifted among the busy streets like a ghost. Always the same plea. Buy a match for a coin. Coins she could use to buy shelter for just one night. One bowl of thin soup. Anything to resist winter's melodic siren song of death.
    As night fell, the streets emptied. No one wanted to be out. Not in the dark. Not in the cold. The little matchgirl huddled in the corner of an alley and tried to breathe on her hands to warm them. She could not remember ever feeling warm. Summer and the bright sun seemed a distant memory. Had she been hap

Pancake Dragon Story - Prize for Art Contest!
    "Waiter, there's a dragon in my pancakes."
    "Oh, he does that all the time. Just give him a bite and he'll scoot."
    As the harried waiter continued on his way, the confused patron of the busy diner could only stare at her plate with a combination of morbid fascination and reluctant humor. Sniffing delicately at her short stack of fluffy pancakes, the little dragon looked not unlike a pancake himself! Toasty body, scales that resembled pats of butter, and a shiny skin over wings, chest, and head that very much looked like dark maple syrup. A single butter-scale plopped on his head between two long ears and thin horns.
    Sensing her gaze, the dragon looked up at her and chirped a merry sound that resembled a question. "Ah, sure," the patron said. She offered a fork, and marveled at the entire scene. "Need this?"
    Rather than accept the fork, the dragon used a single claw to delicately

Snow Leopard Short - Featuring Bengal
    "I will give you my allowance if you make him stop."
    Bastian looked up from where he had been making Mac & Cheese for lunch and blinked at the petite Snow Leopard frowning at him. He had been baby-sitting the fraternal twins for many months by then; easy money most of the time since they usually just wrestled together or watched television while he did his own homework. Being only four years older—sixteen to their twelve—meant that he didn't have to work extra hard to watch them, like he did when he watched the five-year-old tiger triplets. He got hazard pay for that one. "Beg pardon?
    Asha nodded her head firmly. "I'll give you my allowance if you make Altai stop bugging me."
    "Would you like to go back a step and tell me what he's doing?" he countered dryly. "And why it merits giving up your allowance?"
    She sighed. "I have two chapters left in m

This image is beautifully composed, and well balanced. The light is flattering, and you have great depth on the watch and the chain. Li...

So, some terrible things have been happening with me health-wise, which has impacted my ability to get stuff done, and on top of that, slapped me with medical bills of $2200 before my insurance was in place. (I switched jobs.) I can technically pay the bill, but it is eating two months' worth of income. So, the wonderful alexowoa is doing a donation stream to help me out! It starts NOW, and you can check out Alex's tweet for more information. <3 Basically, donate to my Paypal.me, let us know what you'd like drawn, and you get a sketch in exchange for helping me out! Even $1 will get you something, but obv, the more you give the more you get. <3

Stacy J. Garrett
Artist | Professional | Photography
United States
Stacy J. Garrett (S. J. Garrett) was made in England but born in Sacramento, California, and like the redwoods of the state, her roots have dug deep. Her destiny as a bard was somewhat inevitable. Little else can explain how she constantly told her mother tall tales so outlandish that she couldn't even get grounded for them. Her mother and grandmother had her reading by age three, and that love of a good story propelled her through so many books that Scholastic Books gave her a medal. At the age of twelve, she picked up a point-and-shoot camera, and her love of telling a story took itself on a new journey as she starting taking photographs no one believed an untrained child could. She entered junior college by age fifteen to study photography, and in the same year, she wrote her first story. She has never looked back.

Stacy has seen both good and evil in her life, and her works, like life, have no half measures. Even in fantasy worlds of dragons and faeries, she knows that the constants of real emotion never change. Whether shooting photographs in stark straight black and white or brilliant digital color, or turning out fantastical novels of over a hundred thousand words, she shows an ability to move hearts, engage minds, and take people beyond the borders of reality into another world entirely.

Her current haunt is a comfy house in her beloved Sacramento where she wrangles four feline fur-kids and consumes peppermints like mana in order to balance a calendar filled with more creative venues than a sane person should realistically undertake. She considers herself extremely blessed to be surrounded by a group of amazing friends and associates who never hesitate to volunteer to do something a little strange for the sake of art, whether it is getting almost naked in a park or dressing up for a steampunk tea party.

She holds an Associate of Arts Degree in Fine Arts Photography, and will graduate in June 2016 with her Bachelor of Fines Arts in Photography.
