Holly Black could have so easily fallen into the YA trap of pairing every teenage girl with a wise and mystical fae 8 times her age but no, Holly said here’s your mystical fae he’s like 19 years old and he’s dumb as shit

A new illustration  of the many numerous scenes I've wanted to illustrate since reading QON last November. If it's not clear, this is the scene when the Bomb asks Cardan to leave the royal chambers so she can repair and redress Jude's stitches - and Cardan gets the final quip as he exits. These little subtle gestures are easy to miss, but make such a big impact with character and relationship building (at least for the reader's eyes). It didn't say explicitly in the text, but I'd imagine Jude was quite in a state after the lines Cardan spoke just before this moment. Quite fun to express, for both of them. (and the Bomb totally knows what's up)

Time to reveal the three new papercraft artworks featured in the Illumicrate Collections box for The Cruel Prince in collaboration with Holly Black! This was such a passion project, and an amazing honor to be included in a masterfully curated box! This was a super fun project and I had an amazing time experimenting with new techniques to feature detailed illustrations in a papercraft setting. I was able to photograph the super crisp silhouettes by illuminating the background with LED lights! The Cruel Prince (gold) cover is probably my favorite of the three. Lots of hidden mild symbolisms for Jude and Cardan. The moth, representing change. Cardan's bitten everapple; tasting the forbidden fruit. (and stupidly drunk on it) One wing mantle; fallen out of the nest; abandoned. The Wicked King (teal) cover is a great transitional piece. Who is really in control? The power struggle that happens during this book is symbolically shown here: is Jude pulling Cardan down with her? Is she grabbing him for help? Is he trying to stop her? Is he trying to save her?
The Queen of Nothing (purple) was a shot in the dark with its symbolisms, (mostly pulled from the cover and with tidbits provided from Illumicrate) as I made it before I read the novel (and boy, did I hit them on the nose!). Jude's dress comes directly from the book and is inspired by Celtic wedding dresses. I think TFOTA artists are secretly cursing Holly for choosing a snake aesthetic. 😂 That darn thing had to be drawn by hand, swirlies and all!
Each cover features a hidden creature in the black - can you spot them all?

Queen of Nothing (the folk of the air, 2019) by Holly Black
I am the Queen of Elfhame. Even though I am the queen in exile, I am still the queen. And that means Madoc isn’t just trying to take Cardan’s throne. He’s trying to take m i n e.

“ The golden eyes of the serpent are steady, but there are surprised sounds from the assembled Folk. I hear Madoc’s roar.
This wasn’t supposed to be how things ended.
I close my eyes, but I cannot keep them that way. In one movement, I swing Heartsworn in a shining arc at the serpent’s head. ”
- Queen of Nothing, Holly Black
