I just finished this rough image which is a design for Azul, and also an image from the opening parts of the story. It’s drawn from the roof garden of Anlil’s workshop and home, looking out over the centre of the market district, the palace of the Somin, and on the left, the edge of a huge open square where the residents of Azul gather for worship.

The many long banners that adorn the palace and the front of shops and homes will be coloured depending on profession and business – craftspeople and traders compete to make the most attractive displays of the their colour.

    I love it. Middle Eastern-inspired yet with a character of its own.

    That’s gorgeous! I want to visit!
