A piece based on Bram Stoker's Dracula for the upcoming Book Show in Paris, France at Galerie Daniel Maghen [link]
The exhibit runs from July 3 - 28, 2012, opening Friday, July 6 at 7PM

Thanks to everyone who helped me decide what to draw! And in case anyone is interested, I do have plans to illustrate more from "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," Edgar Allan Poe, Lovecraft, and "Jane Eyre" in the coming months. There were many wonderful suggestions, and I hope to finish them all soon!


This piece was all traditional! Made with pencil, ink, and watercolor.

Update: The original was sold at the show, I'm sorry to those who expressed interest! But prints are now available! Purchase them in my shop, here: [link]

It's on tumblr! [link]

What a stunning Dracula illustration! This is so beautiful...
Unfortunately, I discovered this work of yours reposted (I think without permission, because they also reposted one of my work and when I said that that one was mine, they arrogantly replied without even saying "sorry") here on facebook: www.facebook.com/GiocoDiNarraz…
I just wanted you to know. That page always post art without asking to the artists, I think is wrong.

I adore that dream-like eeriness you created here.
It feels like seeing a light horror - it's really creepy
what's going on there but the delicate colors manage
to soften the whole scene.

Very nice work! I especially like the steam or smoke at the bottom and all the twisty lines of the shadows. The moth is interesting too. I love the woman's hair!

Thank you! I just use regular mechanical pencils for drawing, but for this piece I used micron pens to ink, and watercolors.
