'The Last Dragonslayer' Cover Art and App Illustrations

Hi all,

I recently worked with the lovely people at Hodder and Stoughton on the cover art and title lettering for Jasper Fforde's new book 'The Last Dragonslayer'


Synopsis-

'In the good old days, magic was powerful, unregulated by government, and even the largest spell could be woven without filling in magic release form B1-7g.

Then the magic started fading away.

Fifteen-year-old Jennifer Strange runs Kazam, an employment agency for soothsayers and sorcerers. But work is drying up. Drain cleaner is cheaper than a spell, and even magic carpets are reduced to pizza delivery.

So it’s a surprise when the visions start. Not only do they predict the death of the Last Dragon at the hands of a dragonslayer, they also point to Jennifer, and say something is coming.

Big Magic . . . '

There is an enhanced e-book edition -


I also produced some illustrations for the apple ipad and iphone app which expand upon the weird and wonderful world of Jennifer Strange.
