Note from the illustrator:
Inspired by C.S. Lewis’ The Magician’s Nephew, I created two pieces designed to work as a pair showing the sequence of events as Polly and Digory happen upon a mysterious golden bell. While exploring the Palace of Charn our heroes discover the following text inscribed on a stone pillar upon which the bell stands:
“Make your choice adventurous Stranger;
Strike the bell and bide the danger,
Or wonder, till it drives you mad,
What would have followed if you had.”
The first piece illustrates a moment of hesitation, contemplation and temptation, while the second is a visual interpretation of what could happen next outside the context of the original story.
I’ve created two partner pieces that could enable you to share the story with your partner in crime, soul mate, best friend, or travel buddy, to serve as a reminder that journeys don’t have to be taken alone.
Both works have been hand drawn, digitally coloured and giclée printed onto heavyweight 310g.s.m Hahnemühle German Etching paper. Each piece has been signed and hand embellished with metallic paint using posca pens and gold acrylic.
