Work in progress: The Unread Letter.

Work in progress for my current illustration commission for a novella called ‘The Unread Letter’. It has a Gothic Poe-ish feel to the prose and content.

Portfolio reviewing. Loki’s Children.

Post Masters I’m currently reviewing and editing my portfolio, both the physical one and here online, Its a bit dry so for fun I thought for the next week or so or I’d post one of my older works, with a little explanation. or not as I see fit.

This is Loki’s Children, It features Hel, Ferir and J√∂rmungandr three of the Norse God Loki’s children.

They were punished and imprisoned (in one way or another) by Odin for what it was foretold they would do; not what they had done, just what they might do. I felt so sorry for the three of them ‘born bad’ as it were.
I thought of them clinging to one-another as they wait for Odins judgement.

Volcano Goddesses

I just finished a very short edition of screen prints of my Volcano Goddesses; they are hand pulled by me on beautiful deckle edged Somerset paper. The paper size is 76cmx57cm with the image approximately 51cmx39cm.

Two goddesses play sentinel for the erupting volcano, with themes of death, destruction, renewal, and the 2012 end of the world theory.
