I remember the first time I stumbled across the magazine Oh Comely and fell in love with it; so you can imagine my delight when asked to contribute to issue 13. Just received my copy in the post so thought I’d give you a sneak peek.
Adam Jacot de Boinod searched through hundreds of dictionaries to find words whose meanings had no English equivalent and I was kindly asked to illustrate one of them. I decided to go with the Canadian word Hu-q-a, meaning a salmon going along with its dorsal fin out the water. I’ve been dying to draw a fish for ages so pretty happy Huqa was there for the taking.
The magazine is full of fabulous articles and beautiful art so well worth a delve into your change purse.
