First, we have Rivka, or "Captain Riv", and her dragon, showing us that lighting a menorah is way more fun when you've got a dragon friend. What she's holding there is the shamash, the lead candle that's used to light all the other candles after being lit first. Artwork by Erika Hammerschmidt.
Next, Queen Shulamit, sovereign ruler of Perach, lighting the menorah with her sweetheart and personal chef, Aviva. Shulamit lives with multiple food allergies and Aviva was the first person to help her figure out what she could eat safely. Line art is by Ceili Braidwood and the inking was by Jane Dominguez.
For more art of these characters, you can always visit my WordPress blog. And there are more books coming out with these characters; the sequel is on schedule for next summer and I'm halfway through writing another one.
