Lord Asriel and Stellamaria by WinonaCookie


Available to buy on…

Maybe you’ve read the “His Dark Materials” trilogy by Phillip Pullman, or just “The Golden Compass” – truly steampunk for the younger set! Here is my illustration of the formidable Lord Asriel with his daemon, the snow leopard Stellamaria. Lord Asriel holds his projecting device with which he will convince the Oxford Scholars of the existence of Dust. He is set against text from the novel.

    I don’t know, because it’s really not – it’s all handcut and glued, not a digital collage. Good scanner, maybe? ;-)
    Thanks, Bec :-).
