The WOVEN A to Z Challenge: Q is for Queen Carin!

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.

Q is for Queen Carin

The mother of Princess Tyra, Queen Carin is a woman who wants nothing but the best for her husband and kingdom. She shares many of the same features as Tyra (yellow hair and blue eyes) and she has a bright and sunny disposition whenever she is out in public. Some say she spends more time consoling her depressed husband than giving Tyra the parental attention she needs.

  2. I do so agree, absolutely fab picture. Maybe that was why Tyra was such a spoilt little princess.

  13. It's so difficult for a parent to be put in a position like that, between spouse in need of extra help and child.

  14. Al just keeps outdoing the drawings from one to the next. Very regal. I like your quotes at the ends of the posts too, David, Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015, @ http://www.lisabuiecollard.com

  18. I agree with those above... Another classic by Al (and a really neat way of spelling "Karen" - if it's pronounced the same way, of course :)

  20. That's quite a steely determination in her gaze. Looks like she isn't to be messed with.

  21. Definitely not one of those "off with her head" queens!
