Illustration, not 'fan art'. If I sound like a stuck record, it is with good reason.
How does one get from dinosaurs to Austen (with many stops en route) in one journey? Via *Himmapaan
, apparently. It isn't as incongruous a journey as you think.
Illustration of Elinor and Marianne (Marianne is the dark one) for the Bath Bicentenary edition of Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility
, to be published by Palazzo Editions this autumn.
Watercolour with gouache highlights on Fabriano Artistico cold pressed (the old kind which is no longer in production, bah).
It isn't available yet, but I received my advance copy today. Amazon seems to have it available for pre-order
(although please note that the description there about the number of illustrations is incorrect. There are thirty-one illustrations in total; eleven in colour and twenty silhouettes; not seventy-five (!)). As you see, the art director felt it appropriate to flip the image mirror-wise for the cover (and for the frontispiece too).
