A collection of artworks and other things inspired by my journey reading A Court of Thorns and Roses, by Sarah J Maas.
I wanted to try and capture the innocence of Feyre here, and the fact that her life of fear and struggle for survival has led to her sole ambition being the absence of that fear and stress. Does that make sense? Who knows.
THE SPRING COURT
With all the descriptions of the Spring Court, it was only to easy to see how it was inspired by Beauty and The Beast!
I don’t know who that guy in the middle photo is but he is EXACTLY how I imagine Lucien looking! Someone give him a mechanical eye IMMEDIATELY!
Something that I didn’t know before researching this is that Calan Mai is a real festival. It’s essentially the Welsh version of Beltane and May Day, which are festivals held on the 1st of May, a night when spirits were said to come out into the world.
UNDER THE MOUNTAIN
a.k.a. the feminist hero I never knew I needed… I could make a thousand aesthetics of Rhys and still not feel like I’ve truly captured him. But here at least is his darkness, his wings, his pain and his smirky/purry face. Lol. And yes, I would totally dream cast Tom Hiddleston as Rhys. That guy is pure gentleman through and through!
