“A Wrinkle in Time” illustrated

I have always been struck by Madeline L’Engle’s vivid imagery in her quintessential book, A Wrinkle In Time. Being the only girl in a family of four kids, I have always been drawn to this story, since I feel like I relate in many ways to Meg Murry. I decided to illustrate a few scenes from the book, with fashion figures inspired by the scenes. I used mainly watercolor, but also some colored pencil, as well as gold and black marker for detail work. It is self bound using Liberty London fabric a friend gave me.

“It was a dark and stormy night. In her attic bedroom Margaret Murry, wrapped up in an old patchwork quilt, sat at the foot of her bed and watched the trees tossing in the frenzied lashing of the wind” – page 1

“They were standing in a sunlit field, and the air about them was moving with the delicious fragrance that comes only on the rarest of spring days when the sun’s touch is gentle and the apple blossoms are beginning to unfold” – page 56
