Charlotte the Spider Girl by AbigailLarson Charlotte the Spider Girl by AbigailLarson
Charlotte the Amazing Spider Girl!

Charlotte was encouraged to join Murdoch's Carnival of Curiosities as she was being raised by a poorly-chosen godmother who had a very large family and felt terribly burdened by the young arachnid-loving girl.

Joining Murdoch's sideshow, she and Lavinia quickly became companions, despite Charlotte's rather gloomy attitude, and they perform together doing aerial acrobatics and burlesque dancing at night.

During the day, Charlotte dons a plain cotton dress and sits on display in the carnival's "Museum of Living Anomalies."

~

This was made with graphite, watercolor, and digital media.

She might be his favourite because he loves spiders and insects at the moment :D But your illustratons are the kind that I loved as a child too - kind of dark and telling of strange and fantastical things :heart:

oh my word, she is phenomenal! :la: I looooove the shape that the two shoulders in the foreground make. she's like a living, breathing mobius strip! just beautiful. her neck seems a little too long, but I'm guessing she's supposed to be kind of odd all over, not just with the extra limbs? amyway, I love her, did I mention that? she is captivating. :meow:
