Why this work

”The idea of adapting books into my style really appeals to me (I’d love to adapt a novel into a graphic novel one day) but the image I made is unlike anything I’ve drawn before. Northern Lights has so many amazing and varied ideas, it was really tricky choosing just one moment or character that could do the entire book justice. By drawing the character of Pan, I was able to not only represent one of my favourite characters, but also the fantastical idea of Daemons and their transformations which hopefully helps establish the world to the reader.”
