‘DK Amazing Pop-Up, Pull-Out Mummy Book’
The Mummy is based on the finds in Tutankhamum’s Tomb found by Howard Carter in 1922. I enjoyed researching the finds on the Mummy and the various elements in different layers of the body within the sarcophagus.
Most of the artwork was airbrushed using acrylic and gouache. But I used watercolour for the bandages and body.
The Death Mask artwork was also re-used in a book for The British Museum.
‘Ancient Egypt Pop-Up Book’
This also had some new artwork for pop-up spreads by myself.
Published by Readers Digest, 1999.
Zoomers were four spreads that sort of folded through each other to get back to the beginning!
My artwork was airbrushed with acrylic and gouache. Apart from the cartoony ‘Spook House Party’, which was watercolour with a brushed ink keyline.
Monsters of the Abyss
The Monsters of the Abyss book, published by Macmillan Group 2008, contained pop-up spreads of Viperfish, Giant Squid, Sperm Whales etc. It was great fun to illustrate. This time I used digital artwork, but in my realistic airbrush style.
Moon Landing book, published by Walker Books 2008. I was commissioned to supply some of the illustrations for this book. Notably, the Gemini IV spread, illustrated using digital artwork. Above I have taken two of the Pop-Up elements and put them together to make a 2D image.
Harry Potter Masks, published by Sudamericana 2001. It contained pop-up masks that were also part of a double page spread. They could then be taken out of the pages worn and put back. Clever chap that David Hawcock. My digital mask artwork was re-working the films style guides to fit to David’s outlines.
‘Children of Another Albion‘ by J P Paradise
The Cover was painted using watercolour with a black ink keyline. The book also has black & white illustrations with-in it too.
‘Fictions Of Unease’
Published by Sulis, 2002.
Myths and Legends Book
My illustrations were all painted in watercolour at roughly A3 size for a double-page spread.
