I’ve done an illustration for a story, Delivery, by Liam Murray Bell, for Fictive Dream, the online magazine devoted to the short story. Take at look at the image, and then check out the story at Fictive Dream that it accompanies.
It’s done in acrylics and inks on paper, and is about 7″ x 11″.
Liked the art & the story—thanks.
This illustration complements today’s story Delivery by Liam Murray Bell so well. Overall it represents not only the parcel that is mailed every day by one of the characters, but also the build up parcels that the narrator refers to in the story. I love the muted colours that you’ve used and the jaunty angle of the rectangle. Thank you Claudia for another great piece of artwork.
Thank you. I thought this was a sad story of people trying to do their best and maybe it wasn’t always good enough. We live inside our own little boxes and act according to our own intents and they are separate from others’ – like being inside a grid square. I also see the parcels in the grid form. The colors are like the story – a muted sadness, I think. I like the combination of this piece with this story, I think it fits well.
