Fyrnask "Fórn" artwork & design

I had the pleasure of Stag & Serpent being charged with illustration and design duties on the latest Fyrnask release which has just seen the light of day via Van Records. Conceptually, this was a very interesting package to work and I was determined to try and capture something of both the beauty and the darkness inherent in the music.
