The art of Fumi Mini Nakamura seamlessly folds basic elements into a cosmic narrative. Flowers, hands, faces, skulls, birds, and wolves – with teeth and nails and thorns – wrap around each other to create ethereal, moody images. Her 2009 Untitled works – (which are titled) “WE FIND NO VESTIGE OF A BEGINNING – NO PROSPECT OF AN END” and “THE NOISE MUST BECOME MUSIC” are, to me, the perfect embodiment of The Raven Boys. In particular, of Adam & Ronan.

Adam – all dreamy and conflicted, a mix of longing and defeat.
Ronan – all teeth and noise.
The magical woods, their blossoming romance, their tragic pasts, the spaces only they share. They are so different – but such a beautiful compliment.
Like drifting into this song…
Read the Raven Boys Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater if you haven’t (what are you waiting for? get on it!). The new Dreamer Trilogy will be out soon… starting with Call Down the Hawk, so you better get on it.
