The ghost story illustrations postcard set has been expanded with two new designs, The Upper Berth by F. Marion Crawford and The Treasure of Abbot Thomas by M.R. James.
For one week only you can also get an add-on set of just the two new designs, perfect if you already have the old set and want to complete it. This offer will close on the 4th of June.

I made this painting in 2015 inspired by the book Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, but I was unhappy with it for several reasons and have been meaning to fix it ever since.
I finally tinkered with it a bit and it’s now available as a print.

After a lot of cutting and assembling by hand my little line of bookmarks is finally ready!
They are professionally printed on card stock (400 gsm), with a special velvety soft surface on both sides. The backs are plain black. They are hand cut and finished with satin ribbons by yours truly.

This Christmas I posted a very special gift to my Patreon patrons, a digital English language version of my unpublished children’s book from 2004, Kräntiko & Gremel. Longtime followers might remember it!
This is the first time I’ve made the full book available in any form, and from now on it will be available to all patrons, no matter how much you pledge.

My new comic is finally for sale! I’m having a special introductory price of £15 until next Sunday, when the price will go up to £20.
I have also lowered the prices on some of my other comics, most notably the remaining copies of Seaside, which are now also available for £15.
You can find them all at johannaost.com, and of course those of you with Patreon discount codes can use those as well.
I posted all about the process of making this comic over at Patreon.
