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!

View Over the Great Courtyard at the British Museum, from the Members Room

Last night I ran around the British Museum in a blind panic trying to find something to draw before closing time. There’s too many amazing things to look at! I can’t make up my mind! So I went and had a beer in the members room to try and calm myself down for a bit, and I saw this.

It’s very hard not to look a bit pensive and/or cross in a self-portrait.

Dēor-Hord: A Medieval and Modern Bestiary

I’m helping to illustrate Hana Videen’s new blog, Dēor-Hord: A Medieval and Modern Bestiary. Woohoo!

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!
