Last year, I was commissioned by the publisher's 'Disney Hyperion' to create an art-work for a book cover for a middle-grade book, titled 'Alistair Grim's Odditorium' by Gregory Funaro.
The book was a hit, and has received rave reviews.
Fast-forward 12 months, and I've just finished working on the cover for the sequel (again with London-based photographer 'Colin Crisford'), 'Alistair Grim's Odd Aquaticum'.
I read on the author's blog http://www.gregoryfunaro.com/odditorium that he plans to write more books in the series, so there may be more cover-art to come too!
Here is the final cover, and some photographs of the paper model (pre-post production) that I sent to the designer at Disney for approval.
Alistair Grim's Odd Aquaticum will be published next Spring.
Below: photographs of the model (pre-post)
