A Message for Benvenuto by Misuto A Message for Benvenuto by Misuto
I'm currently re-reading the Chrestomanci series because the books are just awesome. And even though The Magicians of Caprona is not one of my favorites from the series, it is still good. I just finished it today and drew this on my 40 minute commute home after work. (On the bus)

In this scene, Tonino and Angelica try to get a message out to their families through Benvenuto. I noticed how few Chrestomanci fanart are on DA and even less of Caprona so I thought I'd do my share and contribute ^_^.

The Magicians of Caprona by Diana Wynne Jones. I've recently read that Diana is ill and this fan is hoping all the best to a recovery and a long healthy life!

(I had to edit the passage in order to not give away too many spoilers! ^_^)
+++++++++++++++++++++
They were to stay hidden and write him a note small enough to carry in his mouth.

So Tonino put one foot on the
Report of Campaign and succeeded, by heaving with both hands, in tearing off a corner of it. Angelica passed him the huge pen, which he had to hold in both hands, with the end resting on his shoulder.
Then, she stood on the paper to keep it steady while Tonino wielded the pen. It was such hard work that he kept the message as short as possible.

Then, exhausted from heaving the pen up and down, he folded the piece of paper and trod it flat. Benvenuto opened his mouth. Angelica winced at that pink cavern with its row of white fangs, and let Tonino place the message across Benvenuto's prickly tongue.

Benvenuto gave Tonino a loving glare and sprang away. He struck one ringing chord from the piano, around the middle C, made the slightest thump on the windowsill, and vanished.

I haven't read that one. But it's good to see that you can draw nice lines on the bus. Very cute drawing.

The bus is not as bad as a car (for drawing)

This is a cute drawing. I've never read the series, but it sounds interesting. I'll have to see if the library has The Lives of Christopher Chant next time I'm there.
