The Art of Illustration

The following image is an illustration of three, possibly four people. Daniel, Anya and Eleanor, characters from a novel, and a little bit of me. Though in general I don’t add myself to images, in this one, since it was done as fan art for the author, I did, albeit in a very subtle way. … Continue reading
