A Tale Dark and Grimm

Here's my cover for the UK release of Adam Gidwitz's 'A Tale Dark and Grimm', due out on August 4th. Much raved about when it appeared in the US last year, and rightly so - it's a terrific read. Will clue you in on the process behind the image (quite epic and hopefully quite interesting) once the book's out on the shelves.

Right now, I'm buried under a glorious pile of creepy/ghostly greyscale interior illustration jobs, which is more than doing it's bit to help evolve and refine my way of working, and maybe even my style in general. Will see if I can post a page or two soon-ish. 'Hate leaving the blog all unloved and neglected like I have been of late... :-(

I love this, can't wait to see how you did it! No rush though if you're busy, and you sound like you're very much so

Thanks Kristian! Yeah, I'll post up the process after the book comes out in August. Covers tend to be subject to lots of changes as you go along, so it may well be a long one!
