Arctic Woolf | Sean Longcroft

Arctic Woolf

Self-initiated project- a book jacket design for Orlando by Virginia Woolf (1928).

Inspiration for the illustration was from a passage in which our hero is romantically smitten while skating on the Thames at the 1608 ‘Frost Fair’.

Development stages of the main character illustration.
Various stages in the development of the London Bridge background illustration. On the far right of the final version you can just see the heads on spikes at Traitor’s Gate.
