A drawing of Coriakin?

Hi, some years ago (in 2006-2007) I saw a great fan picture of Coriakin posted there; it was just a sketch, without color, but really detailed and very similar to how he was described in the book (i. e. the staff, the chaplet of oak leaves, the beard falling to his girdle, etc.) I wonder if it's still available and/or if anyone happens to remember the author. Thank you!

Hi Mklyz

I have a copy of this drawing, which I saved to my hard drive. It is dated, but unfortunately it doesn't have any information about the artist.
I will try to contact a friend who I think has more information about it. In the meantime, I can't share the picture.

Ok, thank you! You mean you need the artist's name to share it?

Yes, because the person will have been a member on our old site (we upgraded in 2009), and I think they didn't re-register on here.
If I find the name, then I can try to find the person via social media etc.

Hi Mklyz, I have emailed my contact, and got a reply saying that they remember the drawing and the artist. The contact is away from home at present, but will try to find the name when they return home.
It's possible that they have a way to contact the artist... *hopeful*

Thanx again! I remember it was really high-quality, would be a pity if it was lost.

Hi, I've tried asking again, so let's hope they can locate it this time. It's such a lovely sketch, I want to respect the artist.

Although my contact has not yet been able to access the information, it has been agreed that I can post the drawing on here with the following disclaimer:

 

This drawing of Coriakin was posted by a member in 2006, on the original version of NarniaWeb, which is no longer available.  I liked the picture very much, and saved a copy to my hard drive.

In the last couple of years we have been trying to trace the artist, without knowing their real name or contact details.  One possible lead was not successful in finding the name.

So I am reposting the drawing, hoping that the artist will revisit and contact me (and give their permission for it to be shared). 
At present, please don’t re-copy it, as it’s still someone’s original work. Please just enjoy it.

Thank you.

That's a really beautiful drawing — glad we're able to see it and I hope the artist will come forward some day! Thank you, @coracle (and NarniaWeb mod team). Smile
