Lady of the House of Love


This was a piece that I actually did a few months ago but just never got around to posting it. It was for one of my studio classes at CCS. We had to illustrate something for a children's book. This ended up not really being for children. It's an illustrator for Angela Carter's "Lady of the House of Love". It's kind of a dark spin off of Sleeping Beauty. Angela Carter is a great author - I would recommend checking out her work sometime!

Since it has been displayed at the Detroit Public Library it has sold 4 times!

It's funny how things work out like that since this was never a favorite piece of mine.

I hope you enjoy!
