My Graphic Novel artwork: The Felwild Saga

Since 2016, together with my dear friend Buvnon, I have been developing the story and artwork for an upcoming illustrated fantasy epic called The Island of Magic and Mystery. The saga follows the adventures of a young girl named Nouf and her unexpected travels through a mysterious and magical land called Felwild. This article is an ongoing documentation of the artwork created for the series of books. I look forward to updating this article as new pieces emerge. Enjoy and stay tuned for more…
