Patrick Rothfuss by girltripped Patrick Rothfuss by girltripped
Bestselling fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss. [link]

His hysterical blog - [link]

And get his book here! - [link]

..Such a pleasure to photograph him. His book "The Name of the Wind" Wolf was reading while I went into labor with Killian. :) Great story to tell him one day.

Rothfuss is greatness! I just don't know how to best describe his books... Fantasy, for sure. Page-turners, no doubt. But when asked why they are so great, I lack an answer. They are just books I would tell anyone I know to read...no matter what they're into. I can't wait to find out what happens to Kvothe!

Who doesn't seem to love Pat? I've never met him, but I hear all who do love him immediately. :]

Subject aside this is a very wonderful photo. Great color scheme, and I love the way the light shines on his beard/hair, and the eyes are perfect!

that one little curl of hair coming out from his eyebrow just makes his expression so much more humble in this cute kind of way... i don't know if cute is the word i'm looking for.. so hard to describe! haha. this is such a good shot though.

Since intelligent comments are generally lacking, I will say that I think this is a wonderful portrait of one of my favorite artists.
