The Messenger of Whimsy – Illustration

Whimsical Illustration by artist Jessica Doyle - snail dreamy mandala

Isn’t she the most insane floating snail you’ve ever seen only in your dreams! I thoroughly enjoyed creating this piece. She measures 10 by 10 inches (30,5cm by 30,5cm).

The Messenger of Whimsy was created with Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens, Micron Pens, Prismacolor coloured Pencils and Winsor and Newton watercolour on Arches cold press rough watercolour paper.

I don’t have too much to say about her. Her meaning his hidden inside the finer details.

The Messenger of Whimsy is available in 12 by 12 inch fine art print size from my shop.

Also, you can see the progression of how I created the Messenger on Facebook. It’s not often that I’ll snap progress shots while working so go and have a look.

  1. Wow, look at the tiny details on the segments of her tail!
    And I love how the sunset magically transforms into a starry night sky…. Gorgeous. 😀

  2. This is absolutely beautiful! I stumbled upon your site this morning and am delighted to have found you. Your work is lovely and inspiring.

  3. Simply enchanting! She certainly has quite the load on her back; although a little weary, she’s steadily moving forward into (what I saw as) a bright and hopeful dawn.
    Even the use of rough, cold press is significant…
