Yay! Hana Videen has written another Deor Hord post (with an illustration by me! double yay!)
Hana Videen has just posted her latest medieval bestiary translation! (with my drawing of a giant flying jellyfish type thing). Go and read it here!
Yay! I’ve done them all now. “Burn”, is possibly a bit not-so-good, and “Friend”, is maybe a bit cheesy and un-halloweeny, but I’ll live with it. I did two, “Surprises”, too. Surprise!
So, now I need to catch-up with the Bestiary!
Here’s the latest D?or-Hord bestiary illustration! It’s an Elp!
I’m completely fascinated by any kind of history, so I’m really excited to be involved with Hana’s new blog. It’s about how medieval artists had to try and visualise exotic animals based on travellers’ (possibly exaggerated) descriptions, without having actually seen the real animals… with interesting results!
If you want to know more, Hana can write a much better description of what Bestiary is, than I ever can. So go read it!
