Marchen is a city with a population of around 3 million.
That count is just the human population though. There is another group that call this place home, a group that very few people even know exist....
Fairy tale creatures have been silently migrating into the city for years, only venturing onto the streets under the cover of darkness.
There is a private investigator who has been finding out all he can about their histories, and what exactly first led them to Marchen.
This is his account of that search.
My name is Chris and I'm a digital illustrator based in Ipswich, Suffolk. In 2007 I gained a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design before going on to be awarded an MA in Digital Arts. During this time I began to specialise in illustration, developing the approach to creating images that I use today. My work is a mixture of digital and traditional methods and I often combine traditional pencil work with digital inks and colours. I currently teach in a rural primary school in Suffolk, something which I greatly enjoy for the many creative opportunities it offers. I regularly produce illustrations to use in school during my lessons, alongside making commissions for friends and colleagues. I hope you enjoy my books, thanks for visiting my Blurb store.
