Swollen Hands, Swollen Heart


Not quite as elaborate as the menagerie, but yet still informative, this is the story of John Gerard who was imprisoned in the Salt Tower of the Tower of London in the 1590s. He had been imprisoned and and tortured and his hands had swollen up to the size of balloons. Withstanding all of those things, he escaped from the Cradle Tower one night, shimmying down a rope across the moat to freedom.

i was going to comment too, that you should illustrate fairy tales, or legends or whatever... your work is so detailed and beautiful i would love to buy a book with stories told through your art.
