“Aturi”, colored pencil and graphite, June 2016.
Aturi is a main character from Jessica’s book Orphaned Gods. You can find out more about his stories here, but for now here’s an excerpt:
On the way toward the door, Aturi knelt for a quick prayer at his little folding shrine. The tiny carved figure of Raven, who presided over secrets and memory—as well as death—currently stood in the place of honor beside the incense-holder. Aturi lit a new cone of incense and pressed both palms to his heart. “Raven who sees things hidden,” he muttered under his breath, “turn your blind eye favorably to your people. And help me remember my equations, please.”
