Rime of the Ancient Mariner is a lyrical ballad by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, first published in 1798.

It tells the tale of a man on a voyage by sea who in an impulsive act kills an albatross flying over his ship. This sets off a sequence of disasters and strange, supernatural events for the ship and its crew as the Mariner is forced to face the punishment for his crime and must perform his penance.

The poem had me fascinated  ever since I first read it in the 11th grade. I had always wanted to realize the dramatic visual potential of the poem capturing the dark and supernatural nature of it some day.

The book was meticulously storyboarded and a style was developed to fit the tone and atmosphere of the story.

The style utilises a muted colour palette, dramatic compositions with a lot of stark light and shadow. After I pencilled the sketches, they were digitally inked and coloured.
