Book Covers, Jackets & Editorials
Procession of the Dead (The City: Book One)
"The room was black with puppets."
An editorial image based on a scene from Darren Shan's 'Procession of the Dead', book 1 of The City trilogy. This has always been my visualisation of the scene where the protagonist first steps into the office of The Cardinal, a tyrannical puppet-obsessed mob boss who runs the city.
Heart of Darkness
One of my third-year university projects. A book cover and three full-page editorial images for Joseph Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness'. Entered into the House of Illustration Book Illustration 2013 competition. I used black biro for these images, which were later darkened and enhanced in Photoshop.
The Wind in the Willows
A second-year university project. A couple of book jackets and front cover designs for Kenneth Grahame's 'The Wind in the Willows' which I later submitted to the Puffin Childrens' Prize 2013 as part of the Penguin Design Award 2013. A mix of pencil drawing and digital colouring.
A jacket design for Mr. Vertigo by Paul Auster. I used a mix of coloured pencils and digital colouring for this image.
