Family portrait of the Montana siblings a good few years before their appearance in Diana Wynne Jones’ Chrestomanci book, ‘The Magicians of Caprona.’ From left - baby Tonino, Rosa, Lucia, Paolo, and Corinna.
I’m not sure I managed to capture their relative ages, but gave it a go!
Haha I freaking hate drawing horses. They’re so weirdly shaped.
But Cat and Syracuse are such a great duo. I like how Cat will now forever be on the good side of woodland creatures and magic folk. Haha each Chrestomanci has his/her own crew…shoot now I want to draw him with Syracuse, Klartch, Tonino, Janet, etc. all a little older and looking super fierce.
Bringing this back for this year’s Halloween season - the radio play of Diana Wynne Jones’ brilliant Chrestomanci novel Witch Week! This mp3 was ripped directly from BBC iPlayer and the show doesn’t start at the beginning or finish at the end, but I’m sure you’re intelligent enough to work it out…
