Music to work / cross-hatch by:

The War on Drugs

Hello, I've been super busy with illustration work this summer, I think I caught a glimpse of the sun out of the window but I might have dreamt it in the couple of hours sleep I got back in July. The summer also saw the release of two fiction titles which I illustrated earlier this year, HENRY HUNTER & THE BEAST OF SNAGOV written by John Matthews published by Templar and DRAGON SHIELD by Charlie Fletcher and published by Hodder. 

I'm really chuffed to have my work published and to see them out there ( available now in all good bookshops! ) it's the realisation of a long held ambition. I'm currently working on illustrations for the sequels to those two books and burning the midnight oil one again, the search for music to keep me working late into the night led me to the Philadelphia based band The War on Drugs and their recent release Lost in the Dream. Here's the video to the single Under The Pressure, I know how they feel!

Here's the cover and some illustrations from HENRY HUNTER and DRAGON SHIELD, I'll write more about them at some point.
