Jennie Ottinger

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

Jennie Ottinger lovingly translates classic novels in a painterly homage, creating wonderful character-driven archetypes of our favourite tales. Each image is like a vignette of the whole story where Ottinger casually, carefully depicts just enough to hint at a plot, even going as far as creating new book forms that narrate her own illustrations and encapsulate the book. Fan art of the most literary variety…
