The Deptford Trilogy

Book Covers

Why did you make this work:
I was commissioned by Penguin to illustrate covers for The Deptford Trilogy by Robertson Davies. They needed to reflect each individual story while also forming one continuous artwork when the books were lined up next to each other.

How was the illustration used:
Book covers.

How did you make this work:
Digital artwork. I use lots of scanned paper textures and try to simulate the paper softness.
