illustration - juri hayasaka chinchilla

Juri's illustrations are definitely on the side of traditional fantasy
- angelic heroins wandering the borders of light and shadow,
half-angels, half-goddesses, hair blowing in the wind, dresses
billowing against the breeze...  they're all quite beautiful and
capable of stirring one to want to write a woman up to the
standards of what Juri presents.

Side note: the first illustration is her self-portrait, which I find
rather fascinating in itself, a single frame in some great story.

Feeling at peace, however fragilely, made it easy to slip into the
visionary end of the dark-sight. The rose shadows said that they
loved the sun, but that they also loved the dark, where their roots
grew through the lightless mystery of the earth. The roses said:
You do not have to choose.
