I just thought I would put together some of my work on an online portfolio site and get some more coverage. Everything seems to work okay, so fingers crossed.

Here's a taste of one of my illustrations for his interactive book which is going to be on sale soon.
|The Duke of Delhi Book Cover|
This was a project from an author who wanted a book cover using 3 illustrations which were provided. Unfortunately, I can't take credit for the beautiful Delhi artwork, but I can take credit for bringing it all together with design and additional illustration work. To create a more "Indian" feel and to combine the illustrations I used mehndi as my main inspiration. This was created using the "frottage" method and Photoshop to finalise the design. There is quite a large bleed area on this image which was quite challenging but I think the end result worked well.
A link to the first draft chapters can be found at http://authonomy.com/books/49541/the-duke-of-delhi/read-book/?chapterid=470518#chapter. The book is aimed at 5-7 year olds and I'm really looking forward to it being published so that I can see what happens next.
I've been pretty busy the last couple of weeks with commissions. Unfortunately, this project fell through at the last minute so I won't be making my fame on TV - but I did learn a lot and worked with some amazing people. I thought it was safe to publish a couple of them on my blog :)
