Abarat IV

francis-abernathy:

"I’m painting a new image of Christopher Carrion for the fourth volume of the ABARAT quintet. No character I have ever written about has such ambiguity in his nature. And that makes him fascinating to me."

-Clive Barker, on his fb page (x)

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS???? IT MEANS THAT CARRION IS NOT DEAD. I REPEAT, CARRION IS NOT DEAD. 

Also for our followers: it’s good to note the name change of Abarat IV from ‘The Dynasty of Dreamers’ to ‘The Price of Dreams’ to “Kry Rising’.

Day 10 - Favorite Villain
Christopher Carrion of The Abarat
I have extremely strong feelings about The Abarat in general- I felt like I was going home the very first time I read it, and all the places on all the islands, and all the people in all the towns, were familiar to me, as if I’d just forgotten that I’d been there and met them.
All that aside though, Carrion is probably the single most empathetic and believable and natural villain I have ever encountered. I’d have few compunctions about standing by his side, Night or no.
and now I sound like a psychopath

Every once in a blue moon I draw Abarat. This time I want to get my designs for the major characters sorted; I’ve put the characters’ names in the captions of each picture
I’d like to keep Candy and her friends in blue, red, and gold, to emphasize their connection and position in this story
though i love them and they’ve inspired a lot of my work, I view the books of abarat very critically. My view of Boa’s character goes against the canon of absolute midnight, and that influenced my design

Back to work again!  The next book cover for my senior thesis is due when I get back from break in a week, and I think I’m pretty much done with it (except for putting in the text…always my least favorite part, haha).  Anywaaay, this book cover is for the book Abarat by Clive Barker as you can probably tell.  The book is about an adventure through an archipelago where each island represents a different hour of the day.  I thought it would be cool to try and represent that in the style of an old-timey mariner’s map which I personally think is a really fun aesthetic. This was so fun to draw and I hope you all like it! Any feedback is always welcome:)
