|Tender Morsels (book cover), oil on paper, 2008|
A book cover for the novel Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan, which takes some inspiration from the Grimm fairy tale Snow White and Rose Red. I borrowed a little of the style of Arthur Rackham's classic Grimm illustrations - particularly his way of painting coral-like foliage. This is the last book cover assignment I completed, mainly as a fan of Margo's work given that I signed off from cover work a long time ago. This painting is available as a limited edition print through Books Illustrated, by request (as it is not listed online), and The Illustrationcupboard in London.
