So first things first: these gorgeous Infernal Devices alternate dust jackets are sold out. I wanted you guys to see the artwork by Alice Duke because it’s SO GORGEOUS. I love that each cover shows two pairs of characters: Will and Tessa, then Jem and Tessa, then Jem and Will. I love all the details, like the angel wings, the spire of the London Institute, modern day Blackfriars Bridge, the library books and so much more! These were part of the Lost Book of the White box done by @faecrate and while that sold out, here’s hoping we see these again in a future box, right? 🤞😉

A new illustration that was featured as a display triptych in the @illumicrate Chain of Gold Special Edition box! It features the main trio from the Infernal Devices trilogy, Will, Tessa and Jem!
I had a really fun time with this piece, and it allowed me to get in some nice expression detail for the two pairings. The flat colors (meant to replicate stain glass) was an appealing style to work in! Black Friar’s bridge can be seen behind the couples in the time period that they’re in. (’A bridge through time’)
I must say, I'm super new to the Shadowhunters world - at least in the book spectrum. I was suuuuuper put off from reading the series since I distinctly remember not enjoying the original City of Bones film. Unrelated to participating in this box, I did get some prodding about this trilogy from other readers, and the time period setting really appealed to my tastes. I started from TID #1, went back to TMI #1 for world building context, and finished off TID #2 and #3 - and I very much enjoyed it! I was working on the Nutcracker Papercraft as I was listening to the final chapters of Clockwork Princess, and y'all.............
I had to RECUT some of the pieces because of tear stains.

Me reading Chain of Iron’s ending
I was so happy, but little did I know
It all went downhill from here
Herondales are born to suffer from love, we get it, Cassandra, but wtf
Right at this point I lost all hope
Then Cassandra hit us with this
“And Matthew” you say?
Not the stars
In conclusion, (not) thank you Cassandra Clare for breaking my heart into a million pieces.
