Mythopia

I could gaze at a Kinuko Craft painting til the ravens come home, especially the ones detailed like this mythopia — looking akin to, but so much more elevated than, medieval illuminations.

Hi Thom,
This illustration is for Patricia McKillip's fantasy fiction novel, The Bell at Sealey Head. I read it recently, and I loved it, like all of McKillip's work. I also did a book talk recently on McKillip's fiction incorporating Kinuko Y. Craft's art. From my research, I learned that Craft reads an entire work and becomes immersed in it before she even begins a draft.
