Fox & I


Two illustrations from a story about a girl and a fox and their journey to the ocean
the bottom one looked really nice with the white paper edges. I will off course crop them off for the final printing but for now I like them showing.

Jan 29 Fairy Love

This is an illustration I made for 'Das Goetheanum' magazine.
 I was asked to illustrate for an article about the significance of fairies 
The article begins with a brief summery of a european folktale about a fairy and a young shepherd which was the subject for my illustration.
The material I used are Faber-Castell aquarelle pencils, fine black pens, and watercolours on a thick watercolour paper.

Jan 24 Bermudo

Jan 24
 A watercolour painting of a little sea creature called Bermudo which I made for a very special person in my life! It's framed in a golden decorative paspartu which I made with a fine Micron black pen and a golden fluid acrylic by Golden. The paper is 23x31 cold pressed Aquarelle Arches paper.

Jan 19 The Bloody Chamber

The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories by Angela Carter.
An illustration I made for an illustration competition by The House Of Illustration and the Folio Society in 2012. The Book, The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories is a collection of short fiction explicitly based on fairy tales with dark and sexual twists.


"These are Gothic tales, cruel tales, tales of wonder, fabulous narratives that reach so deeply into the unconscious that they seem to be the true, original versions."
