this is the first piece of five illustrating the magician's nephew, the first book from c.s. lewis' chronicles of narnia. this is the scene where digory and polly are exploring the attic of their row house in london, to discover if they can travel between the houses via attic doors. soon they discover the secret contents of digory's crazy uncle's attic study, which is the beginning of their adventure.
this piece is very simple compared to it's companions, being a mere 5 paper pieces, but i think it's an appropriate beginning to the 9 following ones.
gouache on cut paper 8x12"
5 paper pieces
