BA (Hons) Fine Art and Illustration
My name is Victoria Joanne McMillan and I am an ink & watercolour illustrator with a passion for everything fantastical and peculiar. By combining literature as well as a love for nature and the traditional, I create work that is very personal to me. I've always had a passion for books, spending the majority of my childhood reading any faerie tale I could get my hands on.
The work I’m sharing here with you today is a collection of illustrations taken from my two pocket-sized fantasy books, Of Trees & False Wishes and A Sibling’s Tribute. Within these images, I share with you a narrative of a family and their unfortunate encounters with the Fey that lurk around every corner in the town of Muurk.
Drawing inspiration from childhood fairy tales and some of my favourite folklore, I aim to portray my own wyrd world, Tales of Muurk. The work created details unique and vibrant illustrations for my own original short stories, with the desire of bringing back the nostalgic joy of reading magical and spooky tales.
