I can’t decide whether I’m more honored to have been able to work on a poster for Watership Down (maybe my favorite creative work of all time?), to have it released by Black Dragon Press (who have been responsible some of the most beautiful posters out there), or to have my design drop alongside Jes Seamans’ poster (which is totally stunning, like everything else she touches).
These go on sale this week through Black Dragon Press: http://blackdragonpress.co.uk
“The Morrígan”, the “phantom queen” of Irish myth. A sovereignty goddess associated with fate, prophecy and a harbinger of death in battle. As battle crow she circles the fray and haunts the monoliths erected in the wake of those who have fallen.
Like many pre-Christian, Irish figures from mythology the Morrígan is often an ambiguous figure, sometimes comprising a threefold nature that changes over time and location. I have chosen to depict her here in singular form.
“The Morrígan” will be available as a limited edition screenprint from Indonesian art collective Villains. Printing by Monolith Press. It is part of the upcoming “Goddess” artist series which goes live on 1st August on www.worldsend.com for Asia & Australia customers. American & European customers should check out posters&toys.com for better shipping rates.
Many Thanks to Villains and Arik Roper for the invitation 🙏🏻

“It seemed to Hazel that he would not be needing his body any more, so he left it lying on the edge of the ditch, but stopped for a moment to watch his rabbits and to try to get used to the extraordinary feeling that strength and speed were flowing inexhaustibly out of him into their sleek young bodies and healthy senses.” Watership Down begins when the primroses are over, and ends with the first primroses beginning to bloom.
