This is one of the pieces of art that I’m most proud of. I’ve always been better at drawing buildings than people, but this piece especially made me really happy when I completed it.

The actual style was quite heavily influenced by Chris Riddle, who did the illustrations for Neil Gaiman’s ‘Graveyard Book’ and ‘The Sleeper and The Spindle’.

It’s an older piece but it appears to have been knocking around in draft rather than on the site, so I thought it best to get it up where people can see it again.

Do let me know what you think

    • It’s pencil and then I inked over the top of the lines. Thank you for taking the time to comment, it’s nice to hear that people like it.

    • Aw, thank you. That’s really lovely to hear. I don’t feel very talented at the moment. I’m struggling with a short story submission that doesn’t want to work.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
