Selected images from Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas, by Jules Verne. Published by the Folio Society. You can buy it here.
One of the best part of being an illustrator, in my humble opinion, is reading books that you might not have otherwise. Given the modern-day representations, I think I was expecting some sort of pulpy adventure story (quite an anachronistic notion, given the book was written in 1869). In reality, it’s a scientific travelogue: very thoroughly observed and researched. There are also some very beautiful descriptions of foreign lands that, when you think about it, are no closer to most of us now than they were in 1869.
Other Folio Society books I have illustrated:
Goblin Market and Selected Poems - Christina Rosetti
Irish Myths and Legends - Lady Gregory
Due to Popular request I’ve finally got around to making the tutorial for how we made the open front petticoats for Goddess Madoka and Walpurgisnacht. Now, before I get into the details about the making process let me give you a little behind the scenes; When I first set about to making the pair of costumes I had no idea how to do the open front, nor had I seen any tutorials online on how to do this except from making your own cage, which I didn’t have the ability to do in our house. So- The process I used was one based on trial and error; Madoka’s petticoat was the one I made first, and Walpurgis’ was the one I made for the tutorial.
Now! On to the Tutorial! You can find the details under the cut—-

”Colourful high socks and large print polo shirts” it’s MOSAERT by Stromae
Born to a Rwandan father and Belgian mother. Stromae stayed true to his origins by fusing both sides to create a really impressive clothing line.
This collection offers trendy outfits worn by the singer in his latest album, “Racine Carrée“.
I am really in love with the explanation on the website
“It is characterized by a mixture of the meeting of the “English school” cuts, the checker and isometric patterns and the warm colors of the African wax”

Misato Katsuragi Dreams of the Second Impact
Misato didn’t appeal to me when I watched Eva the first time, but re-watching it recently as an adult I’ve come to really like her. She seems carefree and detached, but she’s suffered greatly and struggles against many obstacles, from patriarchy to the threat of global annihilation. Also she has good taste in beer.
This piece was done as part of the Red Cross Book Eva fan zine.
I can apply it to other things like TREES, SPIKEY THINGS, FUR, FEATHERS, EXPLOSIONS
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING
