Call Of The Wild Cover - FMP Piece

Yet another book cover as part of my FMP, this one being Jack London's 'Call Of The Wild'. I have chosen to Illustrate the traditional idea of a wolf howling at the moon, this wolf actually being Buck the main protagonist a St. Bernard & Border Collie (I believe) crossbred.

The man in the sky/moon is one of the Alaskan hunters whom kill Buck's owner, to which then spurs Buck to go on a search to avenge his owner.

Really pleased with this piece, but always room for improvement of course :)

Lord of The Flies Book Cover (w.i.p.)

Here is pretty much just the line art for an upcoming cover as part of my FMP.
This one being that of Lord of the Flies by William Golding :)

Played on the idea of the wild boar or monster (as the boys in the book see it) as being the King or Lord they see it to be, so the literal lord of the flies.

Quite pleased with this so far :D ... Now to colour & make it an actual book cover!

The Dice Man (w.i.p.)

Here is another one....of the ten (oh dear) book covers I have chosen to Illustrate for my final major project at college.
This one being that of The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart.

It is of course currently unfinished with alterations and stuff to be added/taken away still but yeah hopefully it gives a good idea of the outcome? :)

Have chosen to illustrate the dice obviously due to them being the vocal point of the book, with certain sides of the dice highlighting potential outcomes... wealth, murder, love/lust, danger etc

Take a look see anyways!

Possible Post/Business Card Design...

Here is a colour version design of one side of a possible post card to be created for part of the New Designer's exhibition I am taking part in later in the year.

Featuring my Joker illustration & contact details :)

The Crane & The Peacock (Tree Time Tales)

FINALLY finished my tree times tales project, which is that of creating a piece of artwork retelling an old tale or story artistically of course :)

I chose Aesop's fable the Crane & The Peacock, which has the moral of basically "Fine feathers, don't make a fine bird" which personally I feel can be brought over into humans, so not necessarily making someone with nice clothes, hair etc a nice person.

Hope people like it anyways :)
