After reading Samantha Shannon's The Bone Season series, I wanted to bring my vision of the characters to life. In the series, there are certain individuals who can see the "aether", which is invisible to regular humans. For my drawings I wanted to capture the personalities of the characters but also their connection to this invisible world.
Paige is a "dreamwalker" which means that she can leave her body using only her spirit. For this reason I wanted to show her in both forms simultaneously. The skyline is Oxford, the prison where Paige and other clairvoyants are held in the first book of the series.
Arcturus (Warden) is a complicated character - I'll keep the spoilers to myself - who is not human. In my drawing I tried to capture his beauty and his glowing eyes.
Jaxon is a brooding, intellectual character and I wanted to capture his sadness. Behind him in the city of London.
