Jo Rioux  Author+Illustrator / Email at jorioux@gmail.com / For merchandise: https://www.redbubble.com/people/joriouxdraws For The Daughters of Ys preview:

The Daughters of Ys. FINALLY! I can talk about the project that has kept me so busy this pastΒ year! πŸ˜† I've been blessed to work with the amazing writer @matthew_tobin_anderson on a graphic novel adaptation of the Breton legend of Ys, the city beneath the waves. This story has everything I love: magic, fairies, monsters and betrayals. It's 200 pages full color! Phew! 😳 The Daughters of Ys is coming out May 2020 with @01firstsecond . Big thanks to @marksiegel2020 for bringing it all together. πŸ˜„ Check out my bio page for a link to some sample pages!Β #fantasy #graphicnovel #comics #fantasyart #youngadultbooks #kidlit #kidlitart #illustration #illustratorsofinstagram #artistsofinstagram #artoninstagram #instaartist #legend #daughtersofys #myth

High Elves. "From the journals of the Wanderer Windcheck: These creatures never build anything out of necessity. Rather, they wait for a fair tree to catch their eye, and let it dictate the room it will shape. I don't think though, that this makes them any closer to the bosom of nature than humans. With the benefit of their long years, they have leveled the prettiest of forests, turning rounded canopies into domes, and majestic trunks into towers. We, at least, are more impartial in our destruction." I've always loved elves. It's probably in my top three after witches and vampires. 😜 What's your favorite fantasy creature? #elves #highelf #illustration #illustratorsofinstagram #artistsofinstagram #artoninstagram #fantasyart #fantasy #kidlitart #instaartist #instaart #elf

Creature week day 6: flowers and leaves.

"Flight" Another #dreamweekchallenge . I don't think I ever worked so hard to wrestle a drawing out of me! 😫 Creative block sucks!

The Prodigy's Dream. My first entry for the #dreamweek challenge! The prompt was "teeth". Thank you all who suggested this! πŸ˜„ I love exploring dreams.
