Inktober 3: bulky
It's been a while since I've posted anything, but here's two recent projects - a cloth Star Wars themed book I embroidered, (I think the Chewy page came out the best), and a miniature doll house wardrobe that leads to someplace that's always winter, but never Christmas... I'm also in the middle of working on an Alice in Wonderland coloring book. I'll post pictures of that work in progress soon.
K is for Kirke (Digory Kirke)
It's been a while since I posted - just over a month. Partly, I was trying to finish a picture book project. Partly, I had trouble thinking of a children's book with the letter "K." Kanga and Roo from Winnie the Pooh seemed too obvious a choice, and then I remembered Professor Kirke from The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, which made me think of his childhood adventure in The Magician's Nephew. This scene is just after he puts on the yellow ring and arrives in "The wood between the worlds."
D is for Dawn Treader / Dragon
I can think of few more unfortunate names or characters than Eustace Scrubb. Fortunately, by the end of C.S. Lewis' The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Eustace becomes a much better person due to his experiences as a temporary dragon. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is one of my favorite entries in the Chronicles of Narnia. I decided to illustrate one of Reepicheep's nightly chats with the dragon Eustace, (mainly as an excuse to draw the valiant mouse.) Part of the gilded green ship can be seen in the background.
I'm an aspiring author / illustrator.
