Illustration from The Magicians by Lev Grossman


The assignment was to illustrate any scene from any book, and my mind quickly wandered over to the magical land of Fillory. It was a pleasure to skim through The Magicians again as I wondered what scene I might choose to illustrate. I settled on a memorable moment in a tavern where the group talks to a friendly bear who drinks little glasses of schnapps and talks mostly about things only a bear would find interesting. Wonderful stuff! There is so much more to the scene that I just couldn’t figure out how to fit in, but that is one of the challenges of being an illustrator I suppose.

Have you read The Magicians? You should read The Magicians.

SCORE: An art school assignment that doesn’t suck! Thanks, Lev Grossman.
