royal winter fair things





the best of my royal winter fair drawings this year and two pencil drawings of Polly from Diana Wynne Jones' novel "Fire and Hemlock". "Fire and Hemlock" is one of those stories that's wormed its way into my psyche over the years. It's grown with me and changed me. The scene I was trying to illustrate comes right at the end of the novel when Polly is traveling on Laurel's train-
"If I'd been thinking of you at all," Polly said, angry and remorseful, "I could have seen through that. She only lied when I asked. You taught me about sentimental drivel, but I didn't think of that once!"
