Covers

 

These are some covers I’ve done over the course of the last couple of years and for whatever reason haven’t put them on my site yet. This first one is for a young adult book called Mothership, which is about a school for pregnant teenagers in space. You can read about it here. Note: The colour was shifted to purple by the publisher at the last minute. You can see my original version here.

 

 

This one is for my Granddad’s book about Erik Bloodaxe. You can read about it and order a copy here. I was really excited and proud to get to work with him on this. He basically designed the cover for me (see his rough drawing below, alongside the final for comparison).

 

 

 

This is the cover for an educational science comic about Malaria, the way the parasite works and what scientists are trying to do about it. The comic itself is drawn by Edward Ross, creator of the film theory comic series Filmish and now Grow, a great autobio series about becoming a parent for the first time. The interiors were coloured by Tom Humberstone, editor of Solipsistic Pop and currently cartoonist for New Statesman.

 

You can read the comic in full here.

 

 

This was done for a new edition of Ian Serraillier’s The Silver Sword. It went unused in the end.
