A Giant's Tale

Just after Christmas I did five illustrations for a book about the fictional life of giants... I was in a bookshop yesterday and found that the book was out on shelf!! From those five illustrations, only two have made it into the final book but if you want to see my first commissioned work in print: The Secret History of Giants is published by Templar Publishing and I am credited here, which is really cool!
...and for those of the curious persuasion, here, in all their glory, are the five illustrations I did!

Giants Playing Quoits


The Giant's Daughter's Wedding and A Giant With A Dragon's Tail


Jack The Giant Killer and The Childe of Hale


It's nice to be in print and especially to be involved in a nice project with a well respected company...

...buuuut, this is the only real work I've had this year...

Well done Kev! From tiny acorns... You're closer to a packed illustrating schedule than you were before the book was published. Treat it as the victory it is.
