I realised the rest of my final illustrations from last semester haven’t been posted on here. So here they are! This is not the last time you will be seeing them as they will be a part of my book I have to produce for my exhibition show! I also want to re-do Bazyliszek.. considering i only did that one over night I think giving it a bit more time and making it larger would make a brilliant final piece for the exhibition!
Legends illustrated here are Bazyliszek, a legend about a dragon that hatched from a chcken’s egg, hiding in the dungeons of Kraków it guarded a treasure changing anybody who tried to steal it to stone!
The men and an eagle is a continuance of Lech, Czech and Rus legend I wrote about in my earlier post. In these illustrations they find the tree with the white eagle. Rus reaches out for his bow to kill the eagle but Lech sees it as a sign to stay and establish his land, the village (Lechia) and people (Lechiatanie) was named after him. Today it’s Polska and Polacy.
