Xibalba

One of the most amazing places I've ever been is the Mayan ruins of Tulum, in Mexico. It's one of my favourite places in the world and I hope I can go back again someday. I loved being there in the baking sun, surrounded by baby dragons iguanas sunning themselves on the stones.


The place inspired my apocalyptic story "Xibalba", featured in volume 2 of the Exotic Gothic 5 anthology.

I've been drawing and painting mostly animals and landscapes, especially trees. But for my first-ever building, I decided to do something from Tulum. Here are two paintings based on a photo I took when John and I were there on our honeymoon.
