Matthew Corbett Art

February 6, 2018

A while ago I posted a sketch I did for an idea for one of the interior pieces for Freedom of the Mask, by Robert McCammon, which was ultimately unused.  A fan of the Matthew Corbett series saw the sketch and ended up commissioning me to produce the finished art based on it.  Here’s the result.

Panacea German Edition

January 23, 2018

Here’s the cover for Festa Verlag’s German edition of F. Paul Wilson’s Panacea.  You may recognise the artwork from the cover of The City & the City which I orginally created it for.  I always find it interesting to see how my artwork ends up being used again for other books.  This image was also chosen for the Ukranian edition of Orphan X so it’s now served as the cover image for three different books around the world!

This German edition of Panacea is out now in paperback and ebook editions.

Verdigris Deep

January 9, 2018

Happy New Year!  To kick off 2018 here’s another of the US edition Frances Hardinge covers I did last year for Amulet Books.  Verdigris Deep will be out April this year.

Below are sketches for other concepts we played around with and the development of this lightbulb idea.

Warm Winter Wishes!

December 18, 2017

Sending you all warm winter wishes this holiday season and all the best for 2018!

Fly Trap

December 8, 2017

Time for another Frances Hardinge cover!  This one’s for Fly Trap, the sequel to Fly By Night.  This will be out April 17, 2018 from Amulet Books.

Here’s a bunch of roughs for different concepts we played around with.  As with the cover for Fly By Night we wanted to somehow work in the ‘goose’ motif into the image.

A Skinful of Shadows

November 24, 2017

Over the past year I’ve done a few more covers for the US editions of Frances Hardinge’s YA novels, which I’ll post over the coming weeks.  Here’s the first one, which is for A Skinful of Shadows which is out now from Amulet Books.

We played around with a few very different concepts for this cover.  You can see the various rough sketches I proposed below.

Originally the book was titled Cold Inheritance, so after it was renamed A Skinful of Shadows it was decided that it would be a good idea to add a subtle shadow element to the tombstone idea which the team had decided to go with.
