Earlier this year Mark Rees asked me to do some illustrations for his book ‘Ghosts of Wales: Accounts from the Victorian Archives‘ – I have a morbid fascination in ghosts and the paranormal so I jumped at the chance.
I rendered the illustrations in pen & ink to create an old fashion woodcut effect. I didn’t know my artwork would be on the cover too, so when I saw the finished book it was a pleasant surprised. Mark invited me to both his book launches in Swansea and Mumbles where he personally thanked me in front of everywhere and I was even asked to sign some of the books by readers (very flattering).
Mark is a pleasure to work for and I look forward to working with him again on his forthcoming book.
Below are some of the illustrations I did for the book…
