Northern Lights


It’s getting cold!

Philip Pullman’s Northern Lights is full of fierce characters, travel and adventures, and some excellently chilly (and chilling) scenes and imagery – a great winter (re)read!









northern-lights-watercolour-blizzard-lowresI had a strong urge to draw some favourite iciness-associated characters, and to do some watercolour book character art again, and realised I’d never really drawn Lyra, Pantalaimon and Iorek before.

There’re two different versions because I couldn’t decide between the dark background and the blizzard background (below)…  And some watercolour sketches, straight to ink as a warm up before the bigger painting.
