Narnia Bento Boxes

With the magic of Midjourney, here’s some AI-created Narnia-themed bento boxes! Using a photorealistic style after those posted in Gourmet magazine. This is the first one.

Narnian Witches: Jadis

Now we come to my favorite part of the Summer of Narnia — posting endless depictions of my favorite character, Queen Jadis, late of Charn.

Worldbuilding Wednesday 8/2/23: The House of Caspian
xxxx(Narnia XLV)

 As I speculated in last week’s Worldbuilding Wednesday post, the family line of Caspian never had a proper name. English history had the Plantagenet kings, the Lancasters, the York, Tudors, and Stuarts… all the way down to the House of Windsor, that of the newly crowned King Charles III. What gives?
