The above is a piece I call Mountains of Mars for a project called Vladimir which I can’t say too much about yet. The brief was simply an interpretation of the word ‘majesty’. An alternative version is shown below, with mountains from across the Solar System, however the artwork needed to be red, so this version remains unused, whilst an exaggeratedly red Mars was perfect for the project.

In other news, Breaker’s End is progressing to a very good point. I’m polishing off the ‘full-rough’ version and it’s actually shaping up to be quite close to how I envisioned it. I’m very excited about finally getting stuck in to the finished art so hopefully I will be uploading some soon.

One more thing: I’m to be a featured illustrator in How to Illustrate Children’s Books by Martin Ursell, published by Crowood Press. The book will show examples of my work and an interview with me about my working process and thoughts on illustrating novel-length books!

Mount Everest 4,6 km???

Comment by Marta

Although it’s elevation is more like 8km, the figures on this illustration are the heights FROM SEA LEVEL. I probably should have clarified that. Everest rises 4.6km above sea level.

But yeah, possibly not the best way of doing it.
