Ethics of Elfland, by Carlos Araujo
This illustration was selected to be part of the Luerzer Special 200 Best Illustrators 2009/2010. And it is also available as Giclee Print at Urban Arts. Inspired by a quote by G. K. Chesterton: “Fairy tales are more than real: Not because they tell us dragons exist but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.” and by the bestiaries, a kind of illustrated book very popular during the Middle Ages. The goal was to create a design that would evoke those illuminated pages.
