The Monthly Murmur: Fish Wives Tell All!

The Monthly Murmur: Fish Wives Tell All!

Piece description from the artist

This is the cover of a gossip/ pop culture magazine like Cosmo or Us Weekly, except it's in a fantasy/ long-time-ago world. There are a lot of cheesy puns… such as the hook and the "We're hooked!" caption by the Tell All, and the references to roses re Ethelreda Malte (who was rumored to be an illegitimate daughter of Henry VIII). I've mixed in real facts along with the fiction, such as the quotes about Duncan II, husband of the other featured "Ethereal Ethelreda"… the quotes from John of Fordun and the Annals of Ulster are genuine very old quotes.
