This illustration was originally created about two or three years ago as part of the cover for a prospective book, for which I was also to have contributed internal illustrations. In the event, the publisher underwent something of an upheaval, and the project was either shelved or had fallen through. I never heard anything further about it.
So I’m hoping that my finally sharing this won’t get me into trouble! I suppose, were the project to ever go ahead again, that I could do a new illustration for it if need be.
On the heels of #MerMay last month comes #JuneFae for this (there is also #JuneBug and #Junicorn, but we’ll come to those later); and although this piece had nothing whatever to do with it, I just felt it opportune to share it as a kind of opener for my own (however meagre) contributions for the month. Unfortunately, the scan robs a considerable deal from the original, not least the blue of the outer robe, which is a more teal-like colour in actuality.
