The Silver Chair

The Silver Chair is the sixth book in C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia series. This is the bleakest book in the series, riddled with dark humor and very few happy moments, until the end. I wanted my illustrations to reflect this gloomy atmosphere in a creepy, yet kid-oriented way. I was inspired both by illustrators like John Kenn and Edward Gorey, as well as Justin Roiland and Pendleton Ward. The monotone illustrations are hand drawn with pencil and colorized in Photoshop. The typography picks up the blue monotone and adds a spot of an additional, contrasting color.
