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.

The Classical

Mega job. Unused. The classical!


Been a long time

I know how worried you must have been about me not posting in almost a year, but it’s all been good in the meantime. Lots of lovely work, fun, play and even some proper learning.

I’ve been attending an all too brief, but very inspiring Graphic Design course at City College Brighton led by the marvelous Phil Jackson. Workload prevented me completing more than a third of the projects, but I was pleased with the outcome of one in particular- a series of book covers based on random word associations. Click images below for a better view.

There were other projects too, at least one of which can be seen join my Behance site. I’ll add a couple more if I get a chance.
