"…the shimmering membrane of a dark river in which the room is forced to mirror itself."
I was asked to illustrate a poem for Brev Spread Magazine. The poem was about books and had a very dark and morbid overtone. I originally planned the illustration to be a bookshelf, just lit from the side, as in the second image but I just had that feeling that something is missing. I ended up tinkering with inverted lines and felt is communicated a ghostly feel.
