Illustrating Asimov

There’s an Isaac Asimov story; The Fun They Had, that I’ve wanted to have a go at illustrating for a while. It’s a kid’s story in many ways, but also a science fiction story that’s still relevant 60 years after it was published. Though it is certainly dated, you can’t blame someone in 1950 for not knowing exactly how computers would progress. It’s about two children in the future who come across a book. You can actually read the full text here, it’s not a long story.

Over on my portfolio page there’s another piccy for this story, plus two illustrations for another short tale; The Wall of Darkness, this one by Arthur C. Clarke.

Currently working on another short-comic for the Cape Graphic Short Story Prize, it’s about a post box. I think it has a lot of potential… It’s about a post box.
