I've been a fan of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy since I was a kid, and I have this really lovely hardback volume of all three books that I bought myself a while back as a treat, but it's only recently occurred to me to try re-reading those stories that had my younger self so spellbound. And yeah, they're as good as I remember.
In homage, I thought I'd have a draw of Lyra along with Pan, her dæmon (I always used to read that as day-mon, not a clue how it's supposed to be pronounced.) Then after a few days I thought I'd draw an armoured bear because those things are badass.
Phil, mate. If you ever do an illustrated edition, you know where to find me.
