My tribute to Alina Starkov from Leigh Bardugo's The Grisha Trilogy, a fantastic series of YA novels set in a Russian-inspired fantasy world and a lovely magic system. I wanted to show her power (and the amplifiers!) rising out of the Volcra but also a little fear that comes with being an accidental heroine.
Done in traditional media: pen, marker, color pencil on toned paper (as usual).
OH. MY. WORD. I can’t tell you how much I adore this. Loved seeing the work in progress at the launch but oohhhhhhhh the final!!! Thank you so much for sharing it <3

Genya is such an important character to me, and my love and sympathy for her complexities spilled over when I got through the first third of RUIN AND RISING. As any survivor of assault knows, one of the hardest things is confronting your assailant, and some of us will never get the chance to. People love to rag on YA for being shallow teen fantasy fodder, but I’ve never felt so emotionally vindicated as I was reading Genya standing her ground and demanding justice. For the catharsis, for the justice, for the kindness — thank you, Leigh.
Thank you, Irene. This is everything.

I know him. His name is Polliver. He captured us and took us to Harrenhal . He killed Lommy. He stole my sword and put it right through his neck. He’s still got it.
It’s okay, you’re safe.
