Lady Death

Lady Death
Lady Death – ensnaring you with voodoo, beguiling you with her enchanting sweet poison and if all else fails she has the bite of a viper, death comes for us all. The final print in the Folklore series for the time being.

I was inspired to do this piece after hearing Valerie June on the radio and then googling her and finding that she has possibly the most incredible hair I've ever seen. It's so cool I had to try and draw it – and this lended itself to my idea for a Lady Death illustration that I had in mind. It changed quite a lot along the way, originally it was going to be much more disgusting with rot and maggots, worms and centipedes in the hair – all things of death, but after coming across Valerie's dreads I decided to take it in a much cleaner snake like direction. Not quite medusa, this lady kills you with kindness, bringing death with a sweet embrace, before you know it, it's too late.

Autumn’s Song

Autumn's Song print
Leaves turn and start to fall, the light gets warm and low, as cold winds start to blow, nature prepares for the finalé of another year, Autumn is here.

This is the first in my folklore series of prints, inspired by spirits, superstitions and myths – stories of wisps in the forest and the queen of the bees. This one tells the tale of Autumn's Song, changing the season and moving the year to it's end, with a chill in the air the wild world prepares to face the harsh winter that approaches.

It was really nice to hear BBC 6Music's Mary Anne Hobbs mention it on her show one weekend – she called it a gorgeous, absolutely exquisite illustration! Thanks Mary Anne.

This will be available as a limited run giclée print when I finish setting up my web store. Check back soon or follow me on twitter/instagram to be updated as to when it's available. In the mean time here are some detail shots...
