Illustration for The Butterfly that Stamped
, from Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories
, published in a limited edition of 1,000 copies by The Folio Society, 2012. Watercolour on Fabriano Artistico cold pressed (the old kind no longer in production), 180 x 255mm.
I enjoyed myself with this one and included ‘portraits’ of myself and a few friends as Solomon, Balkis, and the Djinns. By ‘portraits’, I don’t mean actual likenesses but rather attributes and visual clues (of those who are on dA, ~anatotitan
is Solomon, ~Ashere
is the djinn in the centre, and I am the djinn on the far right).
