Book: Sabriel (purchase on Amazon)
My apologies, dear readers. As they say–when it rains it pours! In terms of work, this has been a pretty wet month for me. Although that’s been great for my freelancing, it also means that Sabriel had to be put on the backburner… After seeing all the great work that’s been put up in Round Two I am disappointed I can’t close the month with something better to show! This delay has been doubly disappointing because I got a lovely email from Garth Nix himself and I can’t wait to jump back into this world again.
Above I have a selection of illustration and spot ideas I’ve been playing with….Clockwise from the top left we have an idea for Sabriel at Cloven Crest, and again on the top right, then Sabriel walking through the snow after she passes through the wall (showing the seasonal discrepancies on either side), and finally the Abhorsen rescuing Sabriel in death when she was just a newborn.
Most likely my next illustration will be Sabriel at Cloven Crest…I always get such a vivid image of that scene and will have something cool to show for it in April (when we get to see another 15 sweet illustrations, headed off by Meg Hunt on April 5!)
