The Herald of Winter’s Relentless Chill

by Matthew Spencer

Bitter wind whips the banner She bears, announcing the imminent grasp of the cold on an otherwise still world.

Inspired by the ochres of dead reeds against stormy blue skies, by tales of ever-shifting Fae courts and by the magic inherent in the wheel of the year.

Painted in watercolor, gouache, and ink on 140lb Arches hot press paper, accented with metal leaf and metallic gold ink.

The artwork is framed in a white and tan patterned frame with a white mat.

Matthew Spencer is a queer illustrator from southeast Michigan.

He works primarily in ink, watercolor and gouache (often embellished with metal leaf), creating pieces inspired by folklore, history, and nature.

Outside of his freelance work, he has been slowly but surely been illustrating his own tarot deck. The Courtly Beasts Tarot- along with a good deal of Matthew’s other personal work- depicts a fantastical world populated by anthropomorphic animals in elaborate costume, set within lush environments both botanical and architectural.
