My other ongoing project at the moment is a competition from the Folio Society to draw some illustrations for this famous book:
I haven’t started anything much yet but having just finished reading it I think it should make for some interesting moody images. I read somewhere that the novel has a strong affiliation with teenage boys carrying it around to look ‘deep’, I like the idea of keeping the battered and ‘dirty old paperback’ kind of look to the illustrations. And there is a well paid commission job to finish the whole book if you win which would be amaaaaaazing!
