Random ACEO sketches - August 2007

Row 1, sketch 2 with the giant and the tiny figure is an odd piece of dream imagery that lingered in my memory upon waking. It may have been inspired by the Giant’s Drink setting from Orson Scott Card’s “Ender’s Game”, but I am not sure.

Row 2, sketch 3 is the Selkie Wife. She comes from the story of McCodrum o’Selkies who married a sea maiden whose sealskin he stole. Much later, when she had already lived with her husband for a long time, and brought up their children, she accidentally found the skin he had hidden behind a roof beam. Here she is clutching it, her life both restored and ruined in the same moment.
