The Old Kingdom Quartet

I just finished a project for my first Skillshare class - Lettering for Designers: One Dropcap Letterform at a Time taught by the amazing Jessica Hische! The project was to take a book and design a single dropcap based on it, the way she has done/is doing for the Penguin Dropcaps series. 

So… I ended up doing four. Initially I was going to do a dropcap for Oryx and Crake, Lirael, and Jitterbug Perfume and decided to begin with Lirael. Then I thought of doing Sabriel, Lirael, and Abhorsen to finish the trilogy, and also did sketches for the short story “Nicholas Sayre and the Creature in the Case” and the upcoming prequel Clariel. In the end Nicholas didn’t make the cut, so I stuck to the novels. And these are the results!
