"The League of Incest"
20 x 30 inch (h x w)
Pen and Marker on Paper

The story of the fateful time spent in Switzerland featuring Mary (Godwin) Shelley, her half-sister Claire Claremont, Percy Shelley, Lord Byron, and Dr. John Polidori. Forced to stay inside in July of 1816 due to the cold and incessant rain, this group of literatis challenged one another to come up with scary stories to outdo the last story, and in that way, the group stumbled upon the creation of two of the most iconic monsters of our time: Frankenstein and the Vampire. The group were coined “The League of Incest” during their time in Switzerland and beyond, for their attitudes to free love and the liberal belief in social mores of the time. Characterized by their youthful idealism and passion for art and intellectual pursuits, this group would spark a revolution in English literature, by championing the individual as the source of inspiration and creativity, rather than some higher power. The waves they made wash over us to this day.
