This artwork will soon be available as part of a new exhibition with the Chris Beetles Gallery, London.
Original illustration from The Storyteller's Handbook by Elise Hurst (Compendium, 2022). In this book, every artwork is a doorway to another world and its endless narrative possibilities.
Pen, ink and watercolour on warm off-white paper.
This illustration has a replacement jellyfish (see close-up image), as Elise changed her ideas on that aspect of the design at the end. The mounted image shows how noticeable that part is within the context of the artwork.
