Figured I should finally post this! My fall thesis work, finished up in early December: I did book illustrations for Gísla Saga! It’s an Icelandic saga, written probably in the 13th century but chronicling events that supposedly took place in the 10th. It tells the story of Gisli, his brother Thorkell, and his two brothers-in-law Thorgrim and Vestein: ill will and fate unravel the relationships between the four of them and spell doom for each man in turn. 

The whole project, with 7 more black-and-white illustrations, short summary text I wrote up, and some preliminary formatting can be read on my Behance HERE.
