Monsters, Zombies, Vampires and More
Cover for a big fat book of monsters, published by Parragon. It won't look like this on the shelves, mind you, what with it having a die-cut cover, out of which the beasties will peep.
A few of the characters needed to be kept consistent with existing illustrations within the book (Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, the Witch, the Werewolf and Godzilla), so I put my own spin on them, and designed the rest from scratch. Working from other illustrators' designs is always an eye opener, you feel like you're getting a glimpse of how the world looks from within someone else's diseased head (as opposed to from within your own diseased head).
Out on 27th August, says Amazon. Try not to buy it from the tax-dodging bastards though.
