It’s free of charge, but if you like it you could consider a donation to sponsor my dad and me for our charity bike ride in less than a month. It’s for the Prince’s Trust, a charity very dear to Benedict. Help us reach our goal of collecting more than ₤400 of donations.
Here’s what it looks like. It contains all 42 drawings I created for the series.
So far it exists in the form of a pdf which I could send to people who are interested or I might put it up for download somewhere. It won’t be suitable for printing, though.
Would there be interest in “real”, printed copies, too? If yes, I’d need to roughly know how many so I can have a look around for affordable printing options. Let me know what you think.
I’d love to see it printed, your work is wonderful. However I can’t help but feel if printed it’d be more beneficial to have your images as full page spreads or something (what with all the detail!), rather than the size they are now. But as a fellow artist, I understand how expensive printing can be. Either way, it’d be great to see this printed :)
Actually, they are full page spreads. The book has 46 pages in total including the covers and is an A5 (21x14,85cm) landscape format. I just combined six pages in one image so I could put them all up at once since tumblr only allows ten images per post.
As you can tell from this set of art, Child ballads involve loads of fluff, if by fluff you mean: trust no one, especially your family or your lover, unless you struck the ballad jackpot and won yourself a True Love. Otherwise, you’re best employed digging your grave now (maybe two graves, or three).
