Two Illustrations For Two Beautiful Books

Earlier this year I was commissioned to do illustrations for two beautiful books, The Wardens Niece by Gillian Avery and The Owl Service by Alan Garner. 

The Owl Service

The Warden's Niece

This was a great project for me as I love the unpredictability of found imagery, making objects from different sources work together is like putting a jigsaw together! The tops-turvy nature of these images was inspired by the artwork of playing cards, a simple surrealism that reflects the magic in these stories. The client wanted them as pieces of art to be framed and hung on a wall, so I kept to the centred oval composition for both images.
