Illustrations for Young Adults Fantasy Novel
"The Saker Falcon" is my first novel. It is a magical adventure story of a 14 -year-old boy in the pursuit of his dream. It's about courage, loyalty and friendship that can cross oceans. The plot takes the reader from a small northern fishing village to a mysterious lighthouse-island and further south to the exotic desert. These illustrations were made for the translated edition published in Japan. I have used in the illustration elements and characters from the story and hope to have captured thrilling yet enchanting atmosphere.
