One of my favorite books I have ever read is ‘Ocean at the End of the Lane’ by Neil Gaiman.  I felt a strong urge to illustrate this book for SmarterArt School mentorship with Sam Weber.  The scene where the boy and Lettie encounter Ursula Monckton was one of my favorites that sparked so much imagery while reading it.
