The Ink Black Art Competition Winner!


Since the release of the sixth novel in the Strike series, The Ink Black Heart, we have been accepting submissions for fan art inspired by the new book.

Though we perhaps didn’t get quite as many as we were hoping for, the submissions we did receive were brilliant! Here they are, with the winner revealed at the end:

We love these knitted Strike and Robin figures!

By Joan Mueller

Harty, Drek, and Paperwhite … This is definitely the best depiction of Drek we’ve seen!

By Rian

This one came in at a close second. We love this depiction of Harty and the overall colouring!

Hello! I’m Harty.” by A.M.

The votes are in! Our favourite fan art piece and the winner of the competition is this great depiction of Harty. Creepy but strangely lovable!
