Howl’s moving Castle
I was fortunate enough to get a proof copy of the first Nevermoor book and immediately fell in love with the world and its characters. These are books that deserve full colour illustrated prestige editions.
Thomas Taylor’s Eerie on Sea books have more fantastic world building and incredible characters.
The Chronicles of Narnia
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is my favourite of these books but I was very taken by the imagery in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
The wind in the willows
This was another choice for illustrators in the 2018 Undiscovered Voices competition. I experimented with art for a full colour and black and white edition.
I was influenced by both the character interaction and the action in these books.
His Dark Materials
This armoured bear was a return to detailed pen and ink work with a classic feel.
experimenting with sepia tone paper.
