An ink-illustrated Moleskine cahier journal illustrating part of the fabulous poem Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti, written in 1859. I studied & produced artwork based on this poem for my self-initiated illustration degree project a few years ago and continue to glean inspiration from it.
This one-of-a-kind journal depicts the suggestion of Lizzie being violated by the evil, cretinous goblins.
An excerpt from the poem:
“Lashing their tails
They trod and hustled her,
Elbowed and jostled her,
Clawed with their nails,
Barking, mewing, hissing, mocking,
Tore her gown and soiled her stocking,
Twitched her hair out by the roots,
Stamped upon her tender feet,
Held her hands and squeezed their fruits
Against her mouth to make her eat.”
Each of my altered journals is one of a kind because it is hand drawn (and cut) by me.
Available to buy from my Etsy shop.
