Illustoria: The Island of the Simurgh

About project

Art direction: Elizabeth Haidle

Text: Anis Mojgani

I was selected by Elizabeth Haidle to illustrate a fictional map for Illustoria’s thirteenth issue. I was inspired by ancient Arabic and Turkish maps and Persian mythology.

The simurgh, a giant, healing bird, and two peris (fairies) stop an ancient chaos held captive at the center of the island from escaping.
