The 28 page full color book is a collection of new work created by illustrator Paige Connelly. The project explores narrative illustration through a folklore inspired world of creatures and old stories. The project began as a world building project under the guidance of Cory Godbey through the Motavari Mentorship program and quickly grew into a larger project.
The story follows Otis the goblin bard and his bird Gertrude as they venture through Fablewood meeting trolls, beasts, and other Fey Folk as Otis collects new inspiration for his songs. The book collects sketches, drawings, and full color illustrations all into one body of work.
The project is complete and ready to print. Digital downloads of the book are available along with printed editions, original art from Fablewood, and private commissions.
