Art by Maureen Shockey


 The Maid Of Olden days

Two pages meant to look as if from an illustrated "Night Land" (Which does not exist beyond these samples and a few more sample pages, alas)

  1. I love the simple clean look of this art . . .

  3. Sorry. My original post had some typos on it, so I thought I'd delete it and post it again (with the corrections, of course).

    I remember seeing these around when I first discovered your site; they still look as good as I remember.

    I really dig the look of the Master Montruwacan; when I first read the book, I always pictured him as one of those generic white-haired, bearded mentor figures (I even pictured him in one of those robes/cloaks that you always see characters like that wear in fantasy movies); thankfully for us Night Land enthusiasts, Miss Schockey is more imaginative than I am, and, in this and in ALL her other artwork that you've posted on the site, gave us designs that not only fit the characters but are also memorable and distinct.

  4. I very much look forward to revisiting The Night Land soon, thank you all for the kind encouragement!
