The WOVEN A to Z Challenge: W is for Wallin!

I dedicate this A to Z Challenge to Tina Downey, one of the A to Z Challenge founders and one of the brightest bloggers who sadly left us last year. Harder still, she was in a secret support group that I'm part of. The best way I can honor Tina, who was excited about and never had the opportunity to read my debut, I've teamed up with Father Dragon to present short bios and character portraits from Woven. I'll write the bios and all art is created by Al Diaz. I hope you enjoy this visual tribute to our friend, Tina.

This is it, the final stretch of the A to Z Challenge. Let's do this!

W is for Wallin

A sturdy and dependable lad, Wallin is one of Nels's friends and his most frequent sparing companion. With tousled red hair and green eyes, Wallin is one of cobblestown's most competitively minded youth, who also shares the dream of being selected as a knight's squire. Quick to tease and unwilling to give up, you can't go far without him cracking a joke or out eating others in a meatball eating contest.

  1. Wallin reminded me of Ron Weasley. That's how I pictured him.

  3. I liked Wallin and his belief in Nels, even when he couldn't see him! Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015, @ http://www.lisabuiecollard.com

  7. He sounds like a good friend to have around in a crisis, meatballs, jokes and all. And every sketch that I've seen is beautiful, this one no exception.

  8. Really, meatballs? Out of all the foods to eat competitively I would have chose something like ice cream. :)

  9. A good friend, and especially one who can win meatball eating contests, is hard to find!
