This is one of the pieces of art that I’m most proud of. I’ve always been better at drawing buildings than people, but this piece especially made me really happy when I completed it.

The actual style was quite heavily influenced by Chris Riddle, who did the illustrations for Neil Gaiman’s ‘Graveyard Book’ and ‘The Sleeper and The Spindle’.

It’s an older piece but it appears to have been knocking around in draft rather than on the site, so I thought it best to get it up where people can see it again.

Do let me know what you think

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.


    • It’s pencil and then I inked over the top of the lines. Thank you for taking the time to comment, it’s nice to hear that people like it.

    • Aw, thank you. That’s really lovely to hear. I don’t feel very talented at the moment. I’m struggling with a short story submission that doesn’t want to work.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
