Happy Halloween...

It's that time of year again...I'll soon be donning my cloak and pointy hat and climbing on my broomstick to go and celebrate Halloween but before I do here are are a couple of pictures to mark the occasion.

First a little experimental inking on some Halloween Totems, a bit retro perhaps, and I've kept the palatte limited, but don't let their vacant expressions fool you, these guys mean business...

Also, I spotted this character watching me last week in Canada, and he was happy to pose for a quick picture-

Happy Halloween everyone!

Cover Art - 'How to Make a Golem (and Terrify People)' by Alette J. Willis

Edinburgh is probably my favourite city, I don't get to visit it as often as I'd like but I do have the pleasure of working with the excellent publisher Floris books who are based there.

I have recently had a lot of fun producing cover art for 'How to Make a Golem (and Terrify People)' written by Alette J. Willis. I loved the book, (I got to have a read of it before I did the cover art) it is very funny and it comes highly recommended.

This book was the winner of the 2011 Kelpies Prize and is due to be published on November 17th 2011.

Age Range is 8 - 12 years

For more info about the book and the author and to buy a copy when it is available go to Floris Books
