Drawing with Jane

Hey everyone,

I can finally show you all something that I’ve been working on for the past 8 months or so.

I was hired by the Burney Centre at McGill University to create illustrations of the library at Godmersham Park, based on research compiled by my friends at the Centre.

We had no photographs of what the library looked like at the time that Jane Austen would have actually visited, so our vision of what the library may have looked like was based on things like floor plans and written descriptions.

The illustrations that I created were used as the backdrop for this amazing project that allows visitors to the website to explore the catalogue of actual editions that were on the shelves at the time that Jane Austen would have been visiting this library.

Please check it out! I had fun helping to create it and it’s also super fun to explore now that it’s live.
