Illustrator and graphic designer currently employed as a jewelry concept artist/product developer. You can count on me to reblog things that inspire me, make me laugh, or both. Sometimes memes and my art make it on to this place. Here we go!
From the Great Library of the Clayr, a selection of passages from Lirael’s journey.
OKAY so, I had a High Medieval Art History class this term and instead of an essay we were allowed to authentically recreate an art form from our lectures, so I chose to illuminate a manuscript using passages and content from Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom series, include Nick/Orannis’s song, the Five Charters, the warning rhyme of the dead and water and the titles of the Nercomancer’s bells. I completed it yesterday, using ink, tempera, and a gold foiling pen.
The motifs are all in reference to the Burney 275, a manuscript from 1310 by a Parisian illuminator, but I incorporated Abhorsen, Clayr and Charter based symbols. See what you can spot! I am really proud of this thing, might take better photos of it when I get it back from being marked.
This was sold this past weekend at Stumptown, which was an awesome show. I had a total blast and met some really cool people! As long as tumblr doesn’t mess with the formatting for this comic, I hope you all enjoy it.
Stretching my graphic design wings a little and making record sleeves and labels for classical pieces one of my characters has written. I’m making a series of eight for each piece. You won’t see the others until they’re all done.
